Religion in Latinamerican countries

There are many pages on religion at Latinamerican countries, both in English and Spanish, that were appropiated by "religious" people who distort the data about rates in surveys or cite wrong sources. Some examples are: Religion in Dominican Republic, Religion en Colombia (in Spanish), Religion en Bolivia (in Spanish)...

Embassy chapels

Hi everyone, I created a new page, Embassy chapel, that displays an interesting and underrated feature of Religion: Embassy chapels. For example, before Catholicism was legal, English Catholics were able to worship at the Embassy chapels of foreign governments, like the French, Portuguese, or Sardinian embassy. Four London churches today have roots in those embassies (Church of St Anselm and St Cecilia, St Etheldreda's Church, Church of our Lady of the Assumption and Saint Gregory, St James's, Spanish Place). The page also talks about other embassy chapels around the world (for example, protestant churches in Italy or churches in China and the Ottoman Empire), which provided religious havens to persecuted religions thanks to diplomatic immunity. I've linked a lot of resources but I don't have much time to fill in the page. Any and all help is welcome. Eccekevin (talk) 18:43, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

Page move discussion

After a page merge, there is now a WP:RM discussion of moving Tanakh to Hebrew Bible occurring at Talk:Tanakh. Members of this WikiProject may be interested in participating in that discussion. power~enwiki (π, ν) 00:41, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Help in Guru Nanak controversy

Hi. There is an editor, Lepchav, who is removing information from the Gurudongmar Lake article that they consider false regarding Guru Nanak. Issue is they also are claiming that there is no trace of Guru Nanak in history, without presenting reliable sources that back up the claim, so I think there is a WP:NPOV situation going on with the removal. Could you guys please take a look at the situation as impartial editors? Thanks in advance. Thinker78 (talk) 18:59, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

Five-Percent Nation

The Five-Percent_Nation#Myths_and_realities section is poorly written, and cites mostly 5-perfecent Nation sources and apologetics. It should be re-written entirely. I would like outside input on the Talk:Five-Percent_Nation#Myths_and_Realities Harizotoh9 (talk) 22:18, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

I removed the section, but it was restored. I'd like outsiders to comment on the issue. Harizotoh9 (talk) 07:34, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

Unification Church/movement

There are many issues with the articles relating to the "Moonies" sect:
1. It is written by its members and so all the articles lack balance and are sourced by its own literature / authors favourable to them.
a) need independent contributors
b) need to avoid "Scientology" type problem in that content is shaped by its members
c) many critical sources are missing
2. Far too many forks on what is a fringe movement, need to merge them into one

Remember to sign your posts. In any case, if this is true, this is an issue. Neutral sources should be used, and not internal Church sources. We had a similar problem with Providence (religious movement). You should cite specific examples though. As for it being fringe, it is a pretty big church in Korea, so many articles probably make sense. Harizotoh9 (talk) 19:59, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
@Harizotoh9 the problem is the sources are disguised as neutral but the whole article is skewed to an unbalanced viewpoint, very cleverly removed/diluted all dissent/criticism over time Abcmaxx (talk) 09:07, 10 August 2018 (UTC)
