1) As long as we are going to have an article on purgatory, it should at least reflect what purgatory is. 2) Incidentals, random people thinking purgatory will be "believed more" (i think is how it was put) in the future, and one anglican dude who happens to write, do not add anything to the overall understanding of purgatory. WE should visit how it's defined and described; why it was a huge money maker for the church for much of the last 2000 years, etc. We need to include Luthor's views on purgatory if they are relevant, as it was one of the big divisions between the reformers and the Catholics. --Godotoi, putain, genial, merci 17:07, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
- "One commentator" line is idiotic. There is nothing at all in the proestant doctorine that would ever suggest purgatory will become a "new addition" to protestantism, which it would have to be to become "more popular". This author is saying nothing that is backed up by anything but his own pulled from his ass views. And it was 2005, and NOT ONE SINGLE MAJOR CHURCH has said "ohhh, purgatory". nor has any major tv guru of evangelism said so. This person is not a scholar, he is not famous (which might justify the inclusion), nor does he offer any actual data showing things change. It is not relevant to this article.

I put the quote below into the article.
At least one commentator expects increasing acceptance of purgatory among evangelicals over the next twenty years  but this may be over specualtive.
if one believes in an afterlife (not of the 'reincarnation, whether or not influenced by the events of your immediately previous life), the concept of purgatory as a means of 'balancing out your naughty thoughts and mildly inappropriate actions' (ie the vast majority of us) seems reasonable as a thought experiment. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:23, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
Who rules Purgatory?
God supposedly rules heaven (and possibly the Heavens)
Satan rules hell (apart from the bits ruled by Hel).
Purgatory seems to be governed by no similar ;entity.'
