VICTU MORALITATIS REGULABUNT
THE HELLENIC COUNCIL of 1718
On the Virtues and Vices of Men and the Lesser Races
A painting depicting High Pontiff Siegmund I, speaking with High Keeper Aeyn I at the Hellenic Council of Renatian Faiths
13th of Godfrey’s Triumph, 1718
His Holiness Siegmund, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Metropolitan of Rhodesia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Pilgrim to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD doth proclaim…
Within these troubled times we, the faithful flock, do find ourselves to be cast away in a sea of vitriol, its waves crashing against our sensibilities with ever increasing force while its winds rip at our rectitude and its rains threaten to drown our virtues. Yet, even in these dark times we, the faithful, stand steadfast and firm against the onslaught of such decrepit forces as these we see about us. It is with pious grace that our wills do not succumb, and it is fervent belief that guards our souls, and with these, my brothers and sisters, I speak to you of a unity we may find in unexpected spaces.
Thus, in the interest of upholding the Divine mandate in the plains of mortal men, the Holy Canonist Church and the Red Faith do find that through open dialogue there is no difference to be found within certain aspects of our combined moralities, and thusly do stand unified in one sole and undeniable truth of Divinity that overarches all beliefs of the land. This revelation of a unified understanding of what causes us goodness and virtue has led the Holy Canonist Church and the Red Faith to vehemently support a unified effort in quelling the aforementioned vitriol, and stand together against the immoralities that plague our combined faithful.
The following mandates are unilaterally agreed upon by myself, Siegmund I, High Pontiff of the Holy Canonist Church, and Aeyn I, High Keeper of the Red Faith, to be upheld by the men and women of our faiths without squabble or neglect. Together, as brothers and sisters in virtuous morality, may we stand against the ceaseless corruptions before us.
The Divinity of Natural Law
I. Clarifying the nature of Divine Law
In the lives of the faithful flock we experience a flowing and unseen force that guides the people of GOD together towards His Holy Light, their devotions and prayers and tolerances deviating betwixt one another yet consolidating without error about few, yet robust, ideals that are held universal. These ideals care not for birth, or creed, or culture, or mindset to find themselves propagated, supported, and unrefuted, for they flourish and become ever more rooted as if the very act of devotion cultivates them with the soils of belief and the waters of will.
This thriving nature to these beliefs is naught folly, nor circumstantial, nor even a product of augmentation or adjustment of a core belief, instead propagating itself naturally in all beliefs from their very founding. The foundations sharing bricks and mortar with but different houses laid upon them. It is with this understanding that the faithful can, and do on occasion, see others from beyond the reach of His Church providing virtuous deeds and graceful inclinations that would align to those professed by His Holy Canonist Church as truly Holy and Merciful actions, to the same extent in the Red Faith as well.
Thus, together in this unity, the Holy Canonist Church and the Red Faith do see our utterly separate and more often at odds beliefs sharing amongst themselves a few key principles that are universal between us. These beliefs having been found to be universally applicable cannot be denied for truly Divinely Inspired works, but as Divinely given seeds to the estates of men so that they may grow great fields of convictions that all share their roots and thusly unite the world in Him. With this, the following writings are to embolden the shared core of ourselves, so that all the faithful flock may witness them without the turning of the cheek in defiance and arrogant ignorance.
II. Precepts of life in accordance with Divine Law
The fundamentals of Divine Law establish a two fold order of the natural world, one fold enveloping the feminine, while the other the masculine. In this the Divine law stipulates universally, with only the carrying out of its mandates differing between any two faiths. During an exhaustive dialogue, Divine Law is hereby established to be the following;
Divine Law concerning the Feminine
To the women of the world a natural form of modesty has always been applied, whether it be by the tribals of the unsettled regions through Chieftains and Clan Leaders, or in the more civilized world through the likes of Dukes and Kings. One thing has always been maintained, the necessity for women to be kept in proper modesty during their youth and courting years, so that they may be prepared and capable of retaining their feminine traits intact for marriage and child rearing.
In the last few decades upon these expansive lands we have come to know as ours, these standards and expectations have waned and faded for more urgent causes such as political strife or theological debate. Yet they have not been forgotten, and it is now that we faithful must strike up the old traditions of yore to shield ourselves from the corrupting and corrosive nature of the modern concepts of womanhood and mothering. Thus the following expectations are to be held across the entirety of Humanity, so that we may once again foster the strength of our communities through the nurturing care of our women once more.
All women, in youth or age, shall be covered in a modest fashion regardless of their position or title in any land or lands they inhabit. This modesty shall entail:
Coverings to hide or obscure the shoulders and ankles of all women
Women of the courting age and younger may wear their hair loose or covered, while women of married status must have a covering adorned upon their heads at all times
Women must not remove their coverings in the presence of men for modesty's sake, unless they be of their Husband or Children
All women, in youth or age, must be kept and barred from the actions of Harlots and Night Walkers to protect the sanctity of our youth and community.
Any woman that partakes in these actions shall be cut from the communication of the faithful, and their body cleansed by priest or by public humiliation
Any one who aids, or allows these actions to be taken shall be cut from the communication of the faithful, and their body cleansed by a priest of by public humiliation twice that of the Harlot and/or Night Walker they aided or allowed
All women are to engage in a traditional courting process, with their familial patriarchs consent, of prospective partners. Relations outside of this are to be considered Harlotry
All women are to be kept and barred from consorting with those of other races
Should a woman partake in this action, his body shall be cleansed by fire
Divine Law concerning the Masculine
To the men of the world a natural form of propriety has always been applied, whether it be by the tribals of the unsettles regions through Chieftains and Clan Leaders, or in the more civilized world through the likes of Dukes and Kings. One thing has always been maintained, the necessity for men to be kept in proper propriety during their youth and courting years, so that they may be prepared and capable of retaining their masculine traits for marriage.
In the last few decades upon these expansive lands we have come to know as ours, these standards and expectations have waned and faded for more urgent causes such as political strife or theological debate. Yet they have not been forgotten, and it is now that we faithful must strike up the old traditions of yore to shield ourselves from the corrupting and corrosive nature of the modern concepts of manhood. Thus the following expectations are to be held across the entirety of Humanity, so that we may once again foster the strength of our communities through the disciplining of our men once more.
All men, in youth and age, must be kept and barred from the actions of whoring and adultery to protect the sanctity of our community.
Any man that partakes in these actions shall be cut from the communication of the faithful, and their body cleansed by priest or by fire
Any man that partakes in these actions with another man shall have their body cleansed by public humiliation
Any one who aids, or allows these actions to be taken shall be cut from the communication of the faithful, and their body cleansed by a priest of by public humiliation twice that of the Whorer and/or Adulterer they aided or allowed
All men are to engage in a traditional courting process, with the consent of the woman's familial patriarch, of prospective partners. Relations outside of this are to be considered Whoring
Men who engage in whoring shall be refused the sanctity of marriage until they are cleansed.
Any man who refuses the sanctity of marriage to a bride deemed suitable by the Holy Canonist Church shall be recognised as a homosexual and summarily cleansed by public humiliation
All men are to be kept and barred from consorting with those of other races
Should a man partake in this action, her body shall be cleansed by fire
III. The Erroneous nature of the ‘Nenzing’ Ethic
For too long have the secularist lordlings found across the breadth and expanse of Humanity thought themselves above the Divine Judgment and Edicts passed down to the faithful. Stepping upon the notion of Divine Law without care, compassion, or knowledge of what it is they tread upon. For too long have the faithful held their breath and for too long has the world been drowned in deafening silence to their false calls of savior.
It is with this backdrop that we unitedly oppose the contents of the Nenzing Proclamation.
Ethic of Equality
The opening remark of the Nenzing Proclamation is as follows:
“And GOD made man equal in all things”
An easily misleading statement for one not versed upon the creation mythos of the Holy Canonist Church as surely a self proclaimed man of faith as Joseph ‘Joey’ Marna would know. For nowhere in our Holy Scrolls mentions that the first Man and first Woman were made to be equal, nor of any other man or woman thereafter. A cursory look at simply the anatomy of each would tell any reasonable thinker that these two specimens are indeed separate and unique to one another, let alone equal in any one thing. Furthering this thought, it goes so far as to break the Divine Law most irreparably through the possibility that, as he would have you believe, the Divine did not seek to order the world clearly, with beasts arranged in a hierarchical manner of feeding as but one example.
Should we turn our attention to the secular, by this very notion Joseph ‘Joey’ Marna would throw away any idea that he is the rightful Emperor, for how can a man equal to all others claim dominance over them? How can he sit upon his throne and cast judgement of any others equal claim to his own station, if not but to spit upon this very notion of equality he so effortlessly puts forth as a basic principle? It is clear to any reasonable mind that these notions of equality cannot work so long as a single man claims that he is above them.
Following this thinking then, it is of clarity that the Divine Law presents itself clearly in regards to the ‘equality’ of Humankind, for it simply cannot exist in a world not based upon fiction. For even should every man and woman maintain the same abilities of mind, what does he say to the innate differences of the body? Does he truly hold that a woman is more competent in militarism, a man more competent in child birth, than they are by fact of both social and physical limitation? The Divine Law is yet to be broken by an inkling such as this, and only proves that any thought of Equality amongst Humanity is but a tale spun up by a man who desperately wishes to garner the support of those not capable of understanding the full depth of what it is he proposes.
Ethic of Liberty
This document goes on to express the goodness of Liberty, purporting it to be a heightened form of governance that may only be achieved by the most refined of cultures and kingdoms. To this, it is a laughable claim to propagate. For within the demesne where Liberty reigns there are an endless supply of Vagabonds, Harlots, Adulterers, Atheists, Whoremongers, and Hypocrites to name but a few, while simultaneously they deny the Divine will and Law in favour of man-made distractions that reap nothing but sin upon those that take them unto themselves.
An anarchy settles deep within the hearts and minds of those who look upon Divine mandate as a suggestion, for they deny these bonds that tether them to a place of reasonability while they turn and fill their desires eagerly. A chaotic showing of savagery and debauchery flows well from the fount of egocentrism, each speaking boldly that their version of morality is truly good while allowing all those around them to say the same. Society torn asunder by the whims and inklings of its members and all at odds with one another upon the fundamental questions that are posed by the world, an anarchy they purport to be true freedom.
Freedom, a thing they bastardise to suit their purposes. For should any man rise and say, through his own freedom, that they act in sin he is cast down and trampled beneath the foot of tyranny and oppression. For in a society without a governing morality through the Divine the only morality they know is that of no morality, and through this they turn themselves into the very thing they say they oppose. A twisted idea held high by twisted men.
Yet, what is more free than a man whose only limits are those of Divine morality? A man who can see clearly through his streets for they are barren of filth, who can speak openly without fear of offending another, who can look upon the irrational and recognise it for what it is without worry that he shall be flogged by the community for daring to question it? A truly free world is given to the faithful, yet it is these destroyers of freedom that seek to place legislation and false ideals upon the station of Divine mandate.
The Condition Of The Faithful
I. On the Divinity of Mankind and the Subhumans
There is no greater evidence of the divine nature of mankind than the enduring dominion and uncontestable supremacy which we, humanity have exerted over the countless ages of this world. Mankind can only be challenged, be weakened by its own ilk. Thus the man is clearly the favoured of the divine, the most favoured of the heaven. Rendering all those varying from this divine blueprint of form and function. Of Mind and Flesh as aberrant to the divine law of the heavens.
It is humanity alone that forms the most stable, most prosperous, most pious realms. Our might rendering our realms safe from genuine threat nigh the wrath of the divine. Yet those great blessings bestowed upon us by divinity are in turn our greatest curse. The abberants in their uncountable hordes do flock to our prosperous realms. Seeking to exploit our competence, our fortune for their own ends. They bask in the security we provide, relish in the riches and treasures produced and captured. Marvel at our palaces, dance in our streets. Yet it is all a rot, a great cancer festering ever growing at the very heart of our realm. To propose that aberrants, varying from the divine plan could ever exist as equals within the realms of man is the very height of folly. Their origins are steeped in sin, in failure, in incompetence and vice. And it is this foul stain that they render upon our own civilization merely with their presence.
Debasing the morals of our youth, flooding our markets with cheap foreign goods, sabotaging us in war, in statecraft, in our eternal labour of peace. Thus we, the keepers of the gate. Doctors of the soul gazing upon a grand edifice evermore burdened by rot and disease, must excise this tumour, that the body may remain healthy and whole. No longer shall race mixers be tolerated amongst the glorious realms of Renatus.No longer shall foreigners be permitted to freely enjoy the luxuries earned by hard spilt Renatian blood. Drastic action is called for in this most pressing time of war, that we do ensure that the great Renatian realm does not suffer from internal sabotage. Either illicit or explicit, conscious or unconscious. Constant vigilance is paramount on the part of not only clerical authorities, but also secular authorities nigh even the average patriotic human unashamed of his superiority. Thus we do undertake the following actions.
Subhumans who do not serve the divine state of Renatus at the pleasure of a Renatian must be registered to the Society for Moral Health. Those registered and deemed acceptable enough to remain within the confines of the Empire shall be obliged to bear an arm band, collar or tatoo marking their status as a permitted subhuman. Unregistered subhumans found within the empire must be immediately processed and registered by the S.M.H or they shall be marked via brand to the forehead and ejected from the realm.
II. The curse of the Magi
There exists, as a constant reminder of the eternal presence of the Fallen, those mortal souls who would take unto themselves eldritch powers. Rejecting the role placed upon them by the divine these individuals reject divinity itself. Succumbing to the temptations of the Fallen that they may maximize their hedonistic desires. That they may be ‘free’. ‘Freedom’, a caustic word for cowardly men. Why should any man need freedom when the course is clear. Unquestioned and complete obedience to the imperative. To the divine. Anything less can result in nothing other than damnation.
Yet these degenerates, these apostates insist in spitting in the face of the divine that they may satiate some base animalistic needs. That they may subvert the divine law in the short term to satisfy some grandiose ambition. Yet none can escape the divine forever. For its law, is unbreakable, and eternal. All must one day face judgement. So too must these, most grievous of offenders. For further proof look no further than the realms of Haense, a realm of cravens and oath breakers. Claiming mandate from the almighty creator whilst it harbours witches and daemonic agents in its midst. The rampant animalistic nature of the savage eldar of the woods is even moreso of a testament. Infamous are they, witches of the woods, for their sexual deviancy in all its forms. What further evidence is needed when the truth is plain before us. Witchcraft and the antics of the Magi blacken the soul and twist the very fabric of our divine creation.
It must therefore, to a last be wiped out. Every olde tome containing a shred of witchcraft will be burnt. Every edifice sheltering them, shall be torn to the ground. Those creatures embedded with innate demonry shall be given the mercy of a pyre. For they too must be saved from themselves. Furthermore the foulness of Witches and Magi, cannot be suffered any longer. They must, one by one be taken. Marked and bound. That they may never again exploit their foul witch craft. The [insert regulatory faith group] shall capture each of these offenders and imprison them. Subhecting them to rehabilitatory practices. Ensuring they are both incapable of the execution of witchcraft and unwilling to ever pursue it again.
SANCTI APOSTOLI EVARISTUS ET CLEMENS: DE QUORUM POTESTATE ET AUCTORITATE CONFIDIMUS, IPSI INTERCEDANT PRO NOBIS AD DOMINUM.
☩ IN NOMINE PATRIS, et Horenus, et Exaltus Honorem. Amen.
☩ W IMIĘ OJCA, i Horena, i vysoka wznoisłw. Amin.
REJOICE! GOD’S FAITHFUL TOIL NO LONGER.
