{{Mergefrom|LGBT and Christianity|Template talk:LGBT and Christianity#Merger proposal}} {{Mergeto|LGBT and Christianity|Template talk:LGBT and Christianity#Merger proposal}}

The existence of these two templates seems like an obvious redundancy. Anyone mind if I go ahead?

Provided they end up with a title that covers LGBT issues and Christianity, which homosexuality does not. LGBT and Christianity includes more than just homosexuality. If they are to be merged, it should be the other way around. Mish (talk) 07:53, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Tell you what we could do, rename/move Template:Homosexuality and Christianity to a new template LGBT issues and Christianity, incorporate relevant material from Template:LGBT and Christianity, and ensure references to Template:Homosexuality and Christianity and Template:LGBT and Christianity redirect to the new template.

Since this has been done, redirecting Template:LGBT and Christianity and Template:Homosexuality and Christianity to Template:LGBT topics and Christianity, I think we can close this discussion. Debresser (talk) 01:46, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

Issues with issues[edit]

We are looking at replacing 'issues' in articles that start 'LGBT issues and/in ...' or end '... and LGBT issues' with 'matters', as some people are not keen on issues, and just 'LGBT' doesn't seem much better. The proposal is to replace 'issues' in the two templates concerned with 'topics' (ditto for categories), so this template would become 'LGBT topics and Christianity'.

Renamed to "Christianity and LGBT topics"[edit]

This template has articles on views within Christianity about sexual orientation and an article about views within Christianity about transgender (which is related to gender identity not sexual orientation). To reflect this I renamed this template to “Christianity and LGBT topics”. --Devin Murphy (talk) 21:07, 13 February 2016 (UTC)
