This is an essay on the Neutral point of view policy.
It contains the advice or opinions of one or more Wikipedia contributors. This page is not an encyclopedia article, nor is it one of Wikipedia's policies or guidelines, as it has not been thoroughly vetted by the community. Some essays represent widespread norms; others only represent minority viewpoints.
|This page in a nutshell: Be careful to preserve a neutral point of view about religion in articles.|
This essay is about a possible Judeo-Christian/Abrahamic systemic bias in some Wikipedia articles.
Identifying the Judeo-Christian/Abrahamic POV
Some Wikipedia editors identify as Christian, and some of these editors write articles on Christian-related topics. There are thousands of religions in this world, however, and in the interests of balance, Wikipedia should also give appropriate weight to other cultures and religions.
Matters of doctrine
Wikipedia does not endorse a particular set of religious views. As with other articles, articles on matters of doctrine should therefore follow verifiability guidelines. Typically, statements on doctrine should have the form "Group X believes doctrine Y," rather than "Doctrine Y is the true doctrine."
