[edit] This Highly Controversial Topic

We need a new template just for this. Something along the lines of "This highly controversial topic is subject to edit wars, flaming, bashing, etc. Therefore, it is closely watched and/or locked frequently. Please do not edit the page unless adding actual references, pictures with notable captions, etc." ColdReactive 18:48, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

That would be untrue, as we have no history of edit warring, flaming etc. over this topic. Heimstern Läufer 19:00, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Oh my word

I still don't think the compendium of all the times the word "God" has been used is really necessary, even on this page. Aside from the TDM loincloth one, they're pretty much all expressions and figures of speech with little to no religious connotation. -128.103.10.119 14:59, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Correct. If you have a gander at Talk:God, you'll be able to see why we deleted the original article on God (i.e. they're all phrases and not actual references). Similar arguments can be applied to the section in question on this article. – The Chort 15:11, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Exodus

In Strongbadia the Free, After you set the mysterious bush on the Homsar Reservation on fire and talk to the bush, Strong Bad will say "Oh, Speak to me Flaming Bush!" This is probably a reference to The Book of The Exodus. --66.205.143.105 15:28, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

I remember that story. I also think it should be included on here. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 04:18, 17 November 2009 (UTC)


[edit] Swears?

Why is there a link to Swears at the bottom of this page? What does that have to do with religion, exactly? The New Uzi Bazooka 23:41, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

I'm sure this is referring to the use of God's name in vain. That'd be the only reason i can see The Knights Who Say Ni 04:59, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
