Just so I'm sure, the gods do not need to obey the law, they are above it yes? but everyone else has to obey it even if it is something they are doing for their god?

For instance, in the highly unlikely situation that someone had to do something illegal to help or even save a god, that person would not be able to otherwise they would be breaking the law?

Also another question while i'm at it, what do people mean by this is the holy land?

Castor,

But High Father Stephen was doing EXACTLY what Lady Vleybor asks of him. He reduced conflict, he prevented unnecessary bloodshed. He did everything in the name of his Lady.

To not do what his Lady asks would make him an excommunicant!

So now it's illegal for people to do what the Seven ask them too?

Regards,
He did all this, but that is not what he is being critised for.
I count the High Father as a friend and I hope he can see his error in helping to consecrated a shrine to Githas.
This was not what his lady asked, this did not help stop any conflict.

If anything in doing so he has given the Primate of Githas fuel for his heretical whispers and created more conflict.

Castor,
It is worth remembering that breaking the law doesn't automatically make you a criminal.
It means you must stand trial for any crime it is believed you have committed. If you are in the process of saving a god from destruction then I think that's a good point to raise in court. This of course doesn't give free reign for law breaking and if you're exaggerating then a judge will likely see through this.

However this really should never happen.

Ithron is the Holy Land because it is where Sidhe led his people and where the Pact between Elysium and Sharda was re-signed.

I would say there's several pages of writings that contradict that, Doctor.

Mortal law and divine edicts are not the same thing, they are usually in harmony, or at least not directly opposed, because as a rule our law makers are guided by the teachings of the Seven. But if the two did come into conflict then it would be up to the individual to make a decision which contract to break. I cannot see it happening, but if a mortal law was introduced that stopped my daily observations to Lord Longstor, then I would continue my observances, knowing that I was in contradiction of a mortal law, but in harmony with divine guidance, and I'd readily take the consequences of that choice.

I encountered some more today near Humberton. We told them of the arrested of the council of Light and then Pending trials. But it's not the council arrested that they wanted. But I vote of no confidence in them in their positions.

I Heard of 3 Trials being done yesterday, with guilty verdicts but they being allowed to carry on in their positions. I am not entirely comfortable in this. I know the do not believe them selves heretics.

As examples to their churches should they stay as the heads of the church? This is a question I posse to them.

We encountered a number of groups of the faithful on Sunday who were also debatin the interaction of the rule of law and the commandments of our Gods. Some of these groups were enitrely legitimate groups of concerned light god followers. However, there were a couple a groups o seraklanites, some o who were agitatin fer the gods ter trump the rule of law, an some o who were just bein sneaky gits. These heretics were either an entire group, or one or two members embedded within a group of legitimate light God followers. If any travellin sidheans run inter groups of light God followers, I'd suggest that yer take a moment ter confirm their faiths in front of each other, such that they may travel in peace together without the naggin doubt that they may be led astray by a follower o Seraklan.

I'd urge everyone ter be cautious. The entire situation is a playground fer the followers of Seraklan, an they appear ter be makin the most of it.
