Error?[edit]

In the climate section, there are error messages. Should I delete them, or should someone fix them? Thanks, 17adavis7 (talk) 01:35, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

Do nothing with them for now. There seems to be a bug in the template that does unit conversions. —C.Fred (talk) 01:38, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

Okay, Thanks! 17adavis7 (talk) 01:41, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

The underlying bug was fixed, and I've purged the article, so it should be working correctly now. —C.Fred (talk) 01:46, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

bigamy/polygamy[edit]

There should be a section addressing this topic since it continues to be an issue in this state. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.119.151.233 (talk) 05:20, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

If it continues to be an issue, then please provide links to the reliable sources that are reporting on it. —C.Fred (talk) 17:14, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
@ 98.119.151.233: See Polygamy in North America#Latter Day Saint Fundamentalism, Current state of polygamy in the Latter Day Saint movement, Mormon fundamentalism, and other related articles for where this is already covered at WP. Also see wp:UNDUE, as adding that information to this specific article would not be a balanced approach. -- 208.81.184.4 (talk) 16:29, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Referendum[edit]

Why dont referendum do for polygamy?--92.46.170.206 (talk) 14:59, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Dubious[edit]

The article claims that Utah is the only state where the majority belongs to one single church. It's sourced, but contradicted by other sources putting Rhode Island above 50% Catholic, while yet other sources has it as slightly below 50% when counting non-religious. It would be beneficial to find an additional source. Either this claim or claims about RI in other articles need to be rewritten, we cannot have it both ways.Jeppiz (talk) 00:42, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Can you provide links to the wikipedia articles and external reliable sources that you believe contradict the statement marked as dubious? The 63% number on Catholic Church in the United States appears to come from a 1990 survey found at Adherents.com - I'm betting that the source for that is the ARDA 1990 report. However, the 2010 report puts the percentage at ~44%. The numbers from the ARDA 2010 report for Utah put the LDS Church percentage at 69%. Based on those most recent numbers, I don't see the claim as dubious (at least with respect to RI), but maybe I'm overlooking some sources? --FyzixFighter (talk) 01:11, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks FyzixFighter, that appears to be accurate. I've removed the dubious tag.Jeppiz (talk) 15:26, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
