This seems kinda like an essay to me. Sam Tally-ho! 02:01, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

It's one paragraph of essay and a lot of list. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 02:23, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
I think a lot of the points made could be worked into existing articles. An article titled "Christian morality" should be more about morality in Christianity, how it's supposed to be in theory, and how it's actually practiced instead of just listing the ways conservatism has corrupted it.

Talk about straw men. Essay space or delete until a RW article can be produced. Blue Talk 03:39, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

We could have a Christian morality article, but this ain't it. Delete. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 03:44, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
My problem isn't that it's a bunch of lists, but that it's just wrong. It makes no attempt to define *what* morality we are talking about, what *christianity* we are talking about, during what era, and why it matters. I don't know if you can have a single article on christian morality, but I echo the others, if you can, this isn't it. Pink mowse.pngGodotDear god, fucking grow up 03:53, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
It could be a sort of overview/hub to various theological and moral systems in Christianity. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 04:09, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
Do we have any articles we would even link to? I'm not even sure how you would address such a thing? Lots of famous people (Acquinous, Augistine, Luther, Lewis) quotes on morality? Or listing things that are supposedly shared across all christianities?Pink mowse.pngGodotDear god, fucking grow up 04:54, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
I agree with Blue and Nebuchadnezzar. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 06:11, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, but until someone can come up with that we may as well just bin it. Scarlet A.pngnarchist 14:54, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
Whatever it is, it's crap. I guess we can show how "broad minded" we are by putting it in essay space as a drive by but it definitely doesn't belong here. Jack Hughes (talk) 15:41, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
