I think Jim, you'd rightly object to a thread with the title "Muslim Abuse of children".

Unfortunately the original title is open to being misread.

While the Roman Catholic church (and many of the public) seem to believe that the word 'catholic' relates exclusively to that church, its meaning is actually much wider.

Much as 'Conservatives', and 'conservatives' have different meanings. Putting the term at the start of a sentence (or heading) will force it to start with an upper case letter whether that is the intended use or not.
