comment Do any Christian groups refer to God as “she”, “it” or “they”? (Or is it always “He”?)
This question asks about domain-specific language and is more suited to a domain-specific SE site, since there is one. I've adjusted it to make it even more fitted here (and probably should have edited it here rather than on ELU -- sorry about that).

comment Why do some Protestants divide the Blood of Christ into individual cups?
@curiousdannii The title mirrors the linked question. The body of the post is more sensitive to likely Protestant doctrine. [The capitals in the title betray my own viewpoint. Sorry about that.]

comment Is church attendance and/or participation in Communion a requirement for Roman Catholics?
It's interesting that the Church of England also has this at-least-once-a-year-at-Easter precept.

comment Why (and when) did the empty cross v.s. crucifix split happen?
In this case -- the Dissolution in England -- there really was rabble-rousing and marauding demolition gangs who had been radicalised by fanatics. That's not to say that all Protestants are radical rabbles; but as a description of the English Reformation it's not out of place.

In that case, this is a duplicate of @El'endiaStarman's question (although that has not been completely answered either).

comment Why (and when) did the empty cross v.s. crucifix split happen?
Are you asking about broad practice within church buildings (which I certainly read into the question), or about personal practice (which an answer has commented on)?

comment Where do I go to get official Catholic answers?
The best place to look is the Catechism. Because that distils Catholic teaching, and it's full of footnotes referencing the Bible and documents produced by the Church. The print edition explains all the abbreviations in the footnotes; it doesn't appear that the online edition includes that.

comment Why should the book of Enoch be considered canonical?
If the text you have written is actually the answer to the question, then it should appear in the "Your Answer" box. When you write your question, there should be something like "Answer your own question?" or something similar. But basically, the question asked and the answer given are two different things.

comment How does the Catholic Church explain their belief that Jesus chose Peter to build upon?
This is an interesting question, which appears not to have been asked before here (that is, there's nothing like it in the [Peter] tag). But it's badly worded and comes across as antagonistic. It also asks us to attempt to explain the mind of God. A better question would be "How does the Catholic Church explain..." not "Why does the Catholic Church insist..." -- but it may also be necessary to make other sentences more neutral in tone, too.

comment Is the Society of St. Pius X schismatic or not?
The old question was not opinion-based anyway (as my answer proves). It's all answerable in Canon Law. Unfortunately because the existing answer no longer matches the question, it's now received a downvote :-(

How is this not the same as your own question earlier about the Catholic Church's view on Evolution and the Big Bang or another on Evolution?
