This author http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... needs the title removed so that only his actual name remains. Google Translate says the current listing is equivalent to "Jesuit Father Fadel Sidarus"; only "Fadel Sidarus" should remain.

Thanks!

That may be so. But Goodreads policy is to list author names without titles.

Please check the other thread for my response. As they say "When it rains, it pours."
