Category talk:Religion tags

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.

Am I the only person who thinks these tags are a bad idea? I mean it's not bad to express your religion but to have a certain Pokémon represent it isn't right. So is this saying that Mew is an Atheist? Or Cresselia is Muslim? Also how come nobody made a tag for Catholicism? That religion is older than Christianity.

Truthfully you should really use the religious symbol like the cross or the Jewish star to represent religions. Not Pokémon. --ケンジガール 20:13, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Bad idea, yes. But better to not leave any one out.
And the Pokémon representing them do so because they're reminiscent of the symbol in question: Cresselia is the crescent moon, Mew is evolution (which inherently represents atheism, because if we didn't come from deity X, where did we?).
It's much like the browser/OS tags: does Ninetales represent Firefox? Not totally. Sure, it's a Fire-type fox Pokémon... but still. I'm not saying that the tags are a good idea, but they do link sometimes very unrelated religions to something that everyone here enjoys: Pokémon. TTEchidna 22:49, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
To be fair, the Hindi, Buddhist, Christian, and Shintoist at least all have Pokémon that somehow directly represent an aspect of the religion. --Zeta 05:57, 26 September 2007 (UTC)
Most religious people are perfectly capable of accepting evolution. It's only America that makes it a significant part of atheism.
But that line of discussion just gets us into a religious debate which is the real threat here. --FabuVinny T-C-S 23:56, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, true. But then what Pokémon would represent it? TTEchidna 00:14, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Look, if a Pokémon is used in the Tag for (for exemple) Muslim, what's the problem? Don't matter if it's a Pokémon or the Religion symbol, these Tags are to the users show the Religion that they believe.--Haruka uzumaki 19:21, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

No. Just no.

Do we REALLY need to show off our religion? Seriously? Tina 01:32, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

We have political tags, and you seem to be okay with those. ShinyTalk | Contribs 01:34, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
But I mean, like, I think people would get more offended with Religions than Politcal things... Tina 01:37, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
Two things you don't discuss in polite company: religion and politics. --DarkfireTaimatsu 01:39, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
People should be offended by neither. They're trivial matters, much like... well, all the rest of the userboxes. TTEchidna 01:48, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
I don't think so. Who wants to talk about their religion on a Pokémon site? And I agree, why use Pokémon to represent a religion? I didn't use any of these tags because it's just kind of weird. Dialgarules 21:41, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Catholic

Out of curiosity what has Gallade got to do with Catholicism User: Vespitomb 10:43, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Episcopal

Can we get an Episcopal usertag made? --Galladeon 02:11, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Protestant

Can we make tags for Protestants (like Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, etc.)? I think simply Christian is to vague. ----Zewis29 (Talk, Contribs) 19:11, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

I think they really need to put Protestant since there is Orthadox,Catholic and Christian and Orthadox and Catholic are [part of the] Christians. So unfair :(.....Taposa 09:07, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
