Public letter to the Pontiff Part I

Recommended Posts

James II receives the public letter. Although many are addressed to him each day, the secretary had set this one aside for its unusual content. He reviews the document, cocking an eyebrow as he finishes it.

 

He pauses, thinking “She is correct that the Scrolls never explicitly state holy union can only exist between a man and a woman, while it does condemn other unusual marital practices like concubinage. However, it seems strongly implied. Odd. . .”

 

He wonders idly if there are any who would put this issue to the test. Satisfied with his justification, the High Pontiff puts the matter out of his head.

“Homosexuality, in its most charitable description, is just another form of fornication. If there has ever been, among the faithful, any tradition of women marrying women and men marrying men, then please do present evidence of it. It does not appear to me that such an unfruitful union, void of children, has ever been accepted among the Canonist flock, and rather we see it only among those pagans who also tolerate other forms of fornication.” says Ailred.

It is a pity, Solomon thinks, holding the letter gently in his hands, that a thing such as love can garner so much hate. He folds it carefully, tucking it in his bag, and continues on his way. Who would want to serve a God that does not wish for his subjects happiness? It is hardly a choice, and can as such hardly be viewed as a sin. 

“May the world bring you peace, my dear,” he muses softly. “And may you find acceptance for who you are.”

Veronica d’Amato would loft a brow as she read the mysterious letter that was slipped under her door. The woman would gently place a hand over her mouth in shock. As she read the last line, Veronica would glance out the windows of the family estate at the citizens passing by before turning to stare at the ceiling for a moment. The woman thought of her friend, giggling to herself. Her lips would curl into a small frown as she re-read the letter. The d’Amato would fold the letter, gently shaking her head as she placed it on dining room table for someone else to read, “This goes against... everything. A shame, honestly. And the poor person who wrote it.. it would be a shame if someone found out who produced this letter.”

Angelika Bykov gasps upon reading the letter. She can hardly comprehend how anyone could write a letter to the Pontiff on such sins, or even consider doing so. ”Niet, this is heretical! These ideas must be shut down immediately before we are plagued with the sin of homosexuality.”

Stefan Vyronov a strong Canonist man shakes his head. “May Godani save your soul from Iblees grasp from being a heretic. The scrolls says husband and wife, indeed, a man is the husband and a woman is the wife. It specifically states man and woman.”

A rather over curious youth managed to slide a copy into her shawl. Amongst the drawling lectures Ophelia was subjected to, she opened up the letter between her book with an arched brow. Attempting to make sense of the new concept to her. But...? Didn’t GOD guide Horen’s marriage to Juliya? Wouldn’t that mean, the most holy form of love is that of a man and woman? For it wasn’t Hannah and Juliya, or Horen and Henrik..? Therefore if the first matrimony wasn’t that of same sex or different race, then we should not venture to other efforts.”

“Vho vould even think that this rhetoric is even remotely pure, this is the Heretical fornications that the Elves do vith out any second thoughts?” Sergei would sigh “Godan save this soul from Ilbee’s temptations”

Lucien Arkin would read this weirdly public letter ”With a faith as large as the Church of Canon you would at least expect them to be far more accepting of their kin, perhaps this is more the nitpicking of men than that of deific will. I hope they choose the obvious option, though the cross is naught more than an item to me”

High Keeper Alisa wondered why a letter regarding matters of Canonist doctrine landed upon her desk all the way in the Norland, but she took a moment to read over it nonetheless. She let out a quiet hum of thought as she held the letter over her flamebrand, setting it aflame. “Good for her.” She commented with a nod. “May she find the peace she seeks, though I doubt she will find it where she currently looks for it.”

Even a woman in red caught sight of this particular parchment, noticing it as it hung from the noticeboard. It was a quick read to be sure, but she’d soon furrow her brow, the stranger’s plea leaving her with a mix of feelings-- discomfort and uncertainty following her for the rest of the evening.

Upon reading the notice, a vagrant begins drunkenly tap dancing in the street, yodeling a merry tune of damnation...
