The question https://christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/40476/relationship-between-jesus-his-father is about the trinity, yet does not specify what kind of answer it would like (trinitarian or non-trinitarian). Is it too broad, too opinion-based, or is it ok that this will attract differing answers? It does make a great place for collecting different views on the subject, but is it off-topic because there clearly is no answer that could ever be accepted as "the answer" since the question is totally open to both views?


You flag it (or vote to close if you have sufficient rep), as in its current form it is both too broad and primarily-opinion-based (it doesn't really matter which one you choose). It is definitely off-topic as is.

    And as a general symptom, would you say I can recognize such questions by finding that the spectrum of possible answers is broad (like, in this case, different contradicting answers)?

  • @kutschkem The spectrum of possible answers being broad will mean that it is "primarily-opinion-based". Having several questions that are quite separable or any question that will require a significantly long answer to be considered in any way adequate is where things tend to be thought of as "broad".
