The fine line between good and poor question

I was considering this question:

http://christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/31622/what-did-jesus-say-about-the-end-times

Which is a question that is on par for Christianity.SE. The question is also easily researchable by either reading the bible or even <gasp> using google.

In a similar light, my question is down voted for not doing enough research:

http://christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/31389/bishops-have-no-free-will

Is the level of accepted research based on the specific user or do we have something solid to base it on?
