In my not so humble opinion, this is not a problem of NPOV
(which we can handle), but of undue weight (which we decided,
we won't handle and hope for the best in the future). "Undue
weigh" has some (semi-policy?) status, but only within one 

If you compare some biographies of gods, gurus or religious
leaders of denominations in the 100.000 to 10.000.000 
adherents range, there are huge discrepancies in size:


You need some paasionate adherents as editors to have
a long biography, or at least some passionate apostats.
