Roman Catholic Church[edit]

Your input would be much appreciated in helping us bring this article up to Featured article. I liked your comments on the discussion page, please feel free to incorporate them into the history section but remember to add references - everything will be looked at with a fine tooth comb so the refs need to be really good. WP:RS is our references bible here. Thanks for coming to help! NancyHeise (talk) 13:27, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

This is copied and pasted from my talk page. A very nice Wikipedia editor gave this to me when I was new and I use it all the time. It is the different reference templates. Just copy and paste the template and fill in the blanks with whatever reference you are using. Maybe you already know this - sorry if I am insulting your abilities - my intention is to make sure you have all the tools you need. Hope I am being helpful!

<ref>{{cite journal | last = | first = | authorlink = | coauthors = | title = | journal = | volume = | issue = | pages = | publisher = | date = | url = | doi = | id = | accessdate = }}</ref>
<ref>{{cite news | last = | first = | coauthors = | title = | work = | pages = | language = | publisher = | date = | url = | accessdate = }}</ref>
<ref>{{cite web | last = | first = | authorlink = | coauthors = | title = | work = | publisher = | date = | url = | format = | doi = | accessdate = }}</ref>
<ref>{{cite book | last = | first = | authorlink = | coauthors = | title = | publisher = | date = | location = | pages = | url = | doi = | id = }}</ref>

The minimum I'd advise is: publisher, author's last name, title, URL and date of access. NancyHeise (talk) 13:31, 19 February 2008 (UTC)


Seen this: [1] and think you seem to be responsible and fair. So happy if I change "like the Roman Catholic Church" to "like the Roman Catholic Church and the Anglican Communion"? --BozMo talk 11:38, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Roman Catholic Church[edit]

Dear Nautical, I saw your edits capitalizing words in the RCC article. I made those lowercase so we would be in compliance with Wikipedia policy that makes you lower case religious words that are not particularly capitalized outside of the religion, I think in order to be NPOV. Can you please respect that the article is just about to get Featured Article Status if we can show stability and not make any more changes? I have asked the FA reviewer for her opinion on the caps issue, lets please abide by her decision so we can get our star. Thanks. NancyHeise (talk) 00:16, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

OK, I am wrong and you are right - the expert the FA reviewer told me to ask said to cap them. I dont suppose that I have miffed you off so much that you arent willing to go back to the page and make that change have I? I would be most grateful. NancyHeise (talk) 11:01, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
Dear Nautical, I eliminated the sentence that you readded to Devotional life because if you look under the subheading of Church a few paragraphs up in Beleifs, that same sentence is there. I eliminated it in Devotional life because it was redundant. I wont revert your edit but you may want to view it all together to see if it makes sense saying it twice. I thought it was too much of the same thing. NancyHeise (talk) 01:34, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

continued from RCC[edit]

Well, when JP2 died...they lied and said that he celebrated Mass that morning. When JP1 died, they covered up the fact that his body was discovered by a Vatican nun (lest there be a scandal)and they even changed the name of the book on his nightstand to "Lives of the Saints". nothing major, but that chickenshit kind of behavior is what frustrates alot of people and gives the illusion of them covering something up. Scandals of their own making for the sake of PR. which in turn feeds the tin-foil hat wearing brigade with conspiracies of assassination, etc. Or if they lie about that, maybe their credibility is not what it seems, etc. It may not seem a huge deal but it is just one of those things that annoys me.--Mike - Μολὼν λαβέ 22:09, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Unfortunate comments[edit]

I have responded to your most uncalled-for remarks on the RCC talk-page. Xandar (talk) 00:07, 25 June 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I'm just stopping by to let myself be known to a fellow Roman Catholic. We share a similar watch list. I myself am an Eastern Catholic, adhering to the Chaldean Catholic Church, which is in Full Communion with Rome. Tell me a little about yourself; I look forward to editting with you in the future.


Tourskin (talk) 05:18, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

You say you are faithful to Christ's Church. Yet, when someone expressed their religious view, and I reciprocated, you said it was uncalled for? How do you resolve this crisis? You know, in the Eastern Rite liturgy, the priest says, "Lord, it is fit at all times, it is right at every moment to give honor and praise to your name". There is never an unfit time to glorify God. Anyways, I give myself too much credit; my only intention was to say that no one on wikipedia is suppose to express their religious views like that on discussion pages - but if they are going to, then so must I. Tourskin (talk) 01:35, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
At the time, though not now, I felt that his repeat of my explanations, but with the added "I'm proud to be..." was an attack upon my earlier posting in which I explained I was not a Muslim. That was how I saw it then, at that time. I can misread people's intentions. Tourskin (talk) 00:41, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

New Consensus sought on lead sentence[edit]

Please come give us your opinion by voting here [2], Thanks! Face-smile.svg NancyHeise talk 17:26, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Hello again, if I can try your patience a bit more- I am conducting now a new vote here [3] but this is on whether or not you think the sources support the article text in note 1 which follows Catholic Church in the lead sentence. Soidi has challenged that my sources do not support the text. Please come give me your opinion so I can have consensus either one way or the other so we can move forward.
