  2. An arcane factoid that's not especially relevant to RW. I took a quick look at the sin article but couldn't see an obvious place for it there either. Boredatwork (talk) 23:33, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

  1. Seems like it could fit with Indulgences Spectral Thief Marshadow (talk) 00:08, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
    Unfortunately, unlike indulgences, this practice predates the Protestant Reformation (16th century) by a few hundred years (simony is most widespread during the 9th and 10th centuries). They're both similar forms of Catholic corruption, but to tie them with indulgences can be misleading. I don't blame you though since the article massively sucks and you'll have to search engine it to get far more informative results (which defeats the point of the article). Funnily enough, this may be missional or at least not entirely pointless as there is one interesting statement I've seen in an earlier revision: Practitioners of the [[Name it and claim it]] "gospel" practice this all of the [[time]] when they go on [[Television|TV]] and solicit "[[tithe|tithes]]" to their [[church]]. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 22:04, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
  2. I think Name it and claim it can have an mention of simony and at least provide background or a historical parallel. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 22:07, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

  • We should have an article on this, but this is not quite better than nothing. Throw back to the to-do list? - David Gerard (talk) 11:27, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
