Catholic Cathedrals in the United States
Why did you set up a new category for "Roman Catholic" Cathedrals? The former category included all Catholic Cathedrals from the Roman Rite to the Eastern Rites and was inclusive of the entire church. The entity known as the Roman Catholic Church is fictional. It is a title used by Protestants and Catholics who do not know better. The Catholic Church is a single entity that is made up of multiple rites with none having primacy over the others. The Roman Rite is much larger than the others, but it is not inclusive of the others. You have even included Eastern Rite cathedrals in this category, which in incorrect. Dividing the church this way does damage to the larger communion for no good reason. I would suggest getting rid of this fictional category. The Roman Rite and the various Eastern Rites are different rites of the same church. They are not different churches. Do you not understand this? If you do not you should not involve yourself in editing topics you do not fully understand. Farragutful (talk) 17:22, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
- I'm sorry to involve in a conversation in which I was not invited . I am sure NeverDoING perfectly understands that there is only one Catholic Church (so do I; however, I am not sure that he speaks English!). Creating Category:Roman Catholic cathedrals in the United States makes perfect sense to me since this category exists for all other countries: Category:Roman Catholic cathedrals by country. Creating a category for the Roman rite and another one for the Eastern rites does not "damage to the larger communion" as you say, but only adds a precision about the item that is categorized. Different rites is a fact, not a fiction, and recognizing them does not divide the Church... Best regards. Peter17 (talk) 17:48, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
