Uh, no. This:

The issue led to comparisons between Kerry's presidential campaign and that of John F. Kennedy in 1960. While Kennedy had to demonstrate his independence from the Roman Catholic Church due to public fear that a Catholic president would make decisions based on the Holy See agenda, it seemed that Kerry, in contrast, had to show obedience to Catholic authorities in order to win votes.[1][2][3][4][5] According to Margaret Ross Sammons, Kerry's campaign was sufficiently damaged by the threat to withhold communion that it may have cost him the election. Sammons argues that President George W. Bush was able to win 53% of the Catholic vote because he appealed to "traditional" Catholics.[6]

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── (talk page stalker) It may be speculation, but its speculation on the part of the ref authors. It seems reasonably well sourced to me, the question is if it is of due weight or not. Gaijin42 (talk) 00:19, 9 July 2015 (UTC), the comparison and analysis comes directly from the sources. Please review WP:NOR. –Roscelese (talkcontribs) 01:08, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

John F. Harvey[edit]

Whoa. Next time, check your aggression short of supporting an AFD to get the upper hand in an edit war. As here: [[1]].E.M.Gregory (talk) 21:09, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

What? The original creator nominated it to get the upper hand, as should be very clear to you. What did I do to you to get you recommending a topic ban on the basis of spam cleanup and then coming to my talk page to yell this nonsense? What's your problem, dude? –Roscelese (talkcontribs) 03:20, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

Planned Parenthood[edit]

Your claim of an "obvious BLP violation" on the Planned Parenthood page, isn't a BLP issue. I will give you the courtesy to revert yourself or I will report you for violation of 1RR. There are several sources listed within that section including ones that fit RS.Marauder40 (talk) 20:07, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, there is totally no BLP issue in accusing someone of selling organs for money. Geez. --JBL (talk) 21:06, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
you mean someone caught on video doing just that. Marauder40 (talk) 22:49, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
The fact (Personal attack removed) does not, in fact, mean that poorly sourced attack pieces suddenly are BLP-compliant. --JBL (talk) 00:04, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

User:Marauder40, normally I'd respond to your "I'll report you for removing the unsourced claim that living, named individuals are selling organs on the black market" with a "come at me, bro", but I'm pretty busy IRL right now. Come at me next week, maybe? –Roscelese (talkcontribs) 03:09, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing out Wandering Stars[edit]

That was exactly what I was looking for. It definitely should be kept, but not the link to the main . --Ronz (talk) 17:01, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Before I get too into it...[edit]

Which Dr. Miracle do you prefer?




Adam Cuerden (talk) 17:19, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

The first one, where he looks the creepiest. :D –Roscelese (talkcontribs) 17:59, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Planned Parenthood David Daleiden[edit]

Dear Roscelese,

Given your removal of oversighted additions on 15 July 2015, you may want to see this change using rollback. The article David Daleiden has details which could be condensed.

"'Scare quotes'"[edit]

Please reconsider your revert on Orson Scott Card. Crazy person though he may be, he is entitled to a fair shake in our readers eyes. The practice of adding quotes around a single word to highlight your distaste for said word is a time honored tradition in newspaper editorials where I began writing; but it really doesn't belong on Wikipedia. Here if evenly presented facts are not enough to convince a reader of something they should generally remain unconvinced.

I like what you did placing "Scare quotes" within scare quotes, btw. Chrononem  20:05, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
