This isn't really an answer, but a comment that's too long for a comment. I think the key thing to remember when discussing these tags is that we are not defining, nor defending doctrine. We are using language to talk about complex concepts about which there are many opinions. Acknowledging that there is a word "marriage" which can mean to some, "one man, ...

This isn't really a suggestion for action, but a survey of the current situation. A quick glance at the christian-identity questions suggests to me that the questions fall into three general categories: Questions where the tag could simply be removed without any damage to the question. Examples: Why didn't God remove the rainbow? https://christianity....

I suggest christian-identification for questions regarding how some groups identify and define Christianity. I suggest christian-identity-movement for questions regarding that theology/ideology. I suggest identity-christianity as a synonym for christian-identity-movement. I approved your recent edits to the tag wikis and excerpts because they were a step ...

See this Meta Stack Exchange discussion While you can quote Wikipedia in tag wikis (but not excerpts) as long as you attribute it correctly, it's generally discouraged. If you're asking about making the tag wiki be little more than just a link to Wikipedia, then don't do that. They should be useful and informative by themselves.

I think this is good with the exception of the "polygamy" text. You have that reading Use this tag for questions about the attitudes and doctrines regarding polygamous marriages. Polygamous marriages are typically in the form of one male with multiple concurrent marriages to two or more wives. The tag also includes one female-multiple-males marriages. The ...

I whole-heartedly accept your proposal. Thank you for a well-thought-out and measured recommendation. It sounds great as is. It won't entirely please everyone, of course, but it probably won't entirely offend anyone either, which is evidence of a good compromise. I think defining the marriage tag as the place for questions regarding the traditional form ...

First, singleness is definitely a prominent category in Christian thinking and pastoral care. For example, see this search for "singleness" in the Koorong book store, compared to those for celibate/celibacy. While not all of the results for singleness are about this topic, there is still a much greater number of them: 2516 compared to 20/19. It's also a ...

Thanks for raising this issue! I've been wanting to address it. Your tag maintenance is appreciated. I have a different take on how it should shake out, however. If God's judgment within Biblical history warrants any tag, it would probably be punishment. I agree that final-judgment should be a synonym of eschatology, but any question about the fate of ...

I think this is a good idea, it could make the site more useful to people who want information to help them in their job of being Christian (which is to be a Missionary) and bring Christ to others. Helping out with practical aspects of being Christian has always been one of the missions of this site. Leading, teaching, catechizing, etc... should be on ...

judgment should be defined something along the lines of "God's decision to reward or punish people, either while still living or after death." This will capture the first two usages Questions about the final judgment should be tagged eschatology and left in judgement only if they are directly about the judgment aspect. That is, if the question is along ...
