My question, How does the Anglican Church defend its legitimacy due to the circumstances of its founding? has been marked as the same as this question How do Anglicans, who recognize apostolic succession, trace theirs? How are these questions the same? One (mine) asks about how a church defends their legitimacy under the circumstances by which they were founded. The other asks how the Anglican Church traces the apostolic succession. Are they the same because apostolic succession gives a church credibility? If so, does that make them the same question? It seems that in that case the 2nd question would only serve as an answer to the first.
Yeah, I don't think they're duplicates your logic is sounds.
One of the privileges (or curses) of a gold badge in a tag (especially when the tag is catholicism ) is that it gives you mod-hammer level powers to close questions as dupes whether you want to or not. I can see informing you of that question, but I can't see closing it
So if Geremia votes to close a question with catholicism as a duplicate, it just gets closed as a duplicate immediately, as if a moderator had closed it (which is also immediate). Now, I don't think this is particularly fair since the subject of the question was actually Anglicanism. Moderators can't VTC questions like regular privileged users can, the idea, I guess, is that there's enough privileged users out there to help in moderations and few enough moderators not to cause any trouble.
I'd suggest flagging a one-vote close by a mod or anyone that you disagree with, doesn't necessarily need to go to meta to get a second look.
