Why was a question closed quickly, without the OP being able to edit it?

The question was put on hold by David, as primarily opinion based. Then the OP deleted his own question, without any explanation, so I won't guess as to why the OP chose to delete rather than edit his ...

People need to read past the title?

I thought for a second when I saw your original title that you might have been intending it literally. This is a fairly academic site, in which question content rather than expression is important. ...

What’s wrong with my question?

I think your question is fine. It's on-topic, as it asks for the views of a particular Christian tradition. As for why it has been downvoted, that's something about which we can only speculate. ...

Should "Is there a trend toward not capitalizing the word "Bible"?" have been closed?

We have many other questions about Christian language, such as the phrase tag, and other questions such as these: Is there any substantive difference between the verbal reference "second ...

Is Christianity.SE suitable for seeking annotated bibliographical list for further research?

I think this would probably be too much to ask for here, and for most topics there probably isn't the expertise or people willing to put in the energy. Instead I think it would be better to simply ...

What’s wrong with my question?

Your question is badly phrased because it assumes that the Catholic Church has an inconsistent position. It has the same problem as the old question "Have you stopped beating your wife?" If you answer ...

Moderator manufactures reason to delete post, and no action taken when reported: What to do?

However, that was false. None of the tags specified "Trinitarian." Perhaps realizing that this was so, and attempting to cover his/her tracks, the moderator then edited the question so as to ...

Heavy-handed, biased moderating, or something else?

I genuinely made the edits I made in good faith, and in fact, I don't see how the question as it was originally phrased could be interpreted in any way that would contradict the edits I made. Why has ...

You wrote something is this meta post that is a huge red flag suggesting the question should not, in fact, be re-opened: I would like to see more answers that address other views. This sites's Q&...

Precedence: biblical basis or truth question/is X a sin?

There isn't a conflict here between this being an "on-topic biblical basis" question and an "off-topic is X a sin" question, because instead of asking "what is the biblical basis for X?" it asks the ...

Not a Duplicate - Kindly Reopen

yeah, I don't think it's an exact duplicate, but how much of the answer would carry over? And how much of the science behind the answer needs to be verified before the Church could possibly give an ...

If I could suggest something for all questions here, it is to add the doctrinal framework you're asking for to the title (i.e. according to Baptist, Evangelicals, Catholics, Orthodox, etc...). This ...

Inappropriate deletion of answer

This topic was answered according to the scriptures - this is Christianity after all. The question doesn't ask for an answer from the scriptures. A legitimate answer to the question might never ...

Inappropriate deletion of answer

Did you ever flag D.J.'s answer as not an answer? Moderators don't necessarily go out of their way to delete answers. I think this is a question about Christian culture, not necessarily theology. Or ...

Why was my answer about Jesus and the early church just deleted?

It was deleted because you didn't answer the question. The question asked about the Early Church Fathers' views on Judaism. You gave us an overview of Jewish sects and a quote from Jesus. Jesus was ...

Is this question on-topic or not?

Obviously the question has some elements of both opinion-based and truth-questions. On the other hand I don't think it carries with it most of the classic baggage of those types of questions. In spite ...

I think the question is fine as a question of church history. I don't think anyone would dispute the basic facts: that before the reformation infant baptism was supreme in the Catholic Church, that ...
