Msg event.pngReformer Seeks Safe Haven

Fearing for his safety one of the great theologians of our age has had to leave his homeland. As a Protestant country it is our duty to offer a safe haven for this man and doing so would undoubtedly strengthen the position of our State Church. At least as long as this reformer agrees with our policies.

Msg event.pngThe Fear of Crypto-Catholics

Ever present in our state is the fear that some who professes to believe in all aspects of our state church are still secretly a Catholic sympathizer. One noble family in particular, though firmly entrenched in the machinery of the state, is said to have Papist leanings. As the years drag on these rumors refuse to die and would now seem almost impossible for us to ignore.

Msg event.png'The Last Days' of [Root.GetName]

Religious fervor has gripped [Root.GetName] as the population have become convinced the end of days is drawing nearer. Peasants are talking of signs in the sky and contrary to the doctrine of the State Church local priests are giving sermons on the apocalypse. As Millenarianism sweeps the province blame is being put on the State and State Church itself which professes to be Protestant yet clearly is not living up to its name.
Official reactions have so far been very weak as even among the clergy of [Root.Owner.Capital.GetCapitalName] some feel these fears are justified.

Msg event.pngAvarice

Some members of our State Church has suffered dearly due to excessively high interest rates, voices are being raised and pamphlets circulated condemning 'Usury and Fraud' and claiming that petty brokers are to be seen in every street.
It is the view of our State and its Church that charging interest is compatible with being a good Christian yet in some cases it seems it can lead to excesses. Perhaps it would be best to further decrease the allowed amount of interest to curb the worst cases.

Msg event.pngResistance to the Reformation in [Root.GetName]

There are still those, especially in the countryside who oppose the State Church of [Root.Owner.GetName] and who long to return to the embrace of the Roman Church. There is, however, a big difference between religious doubts and open rebellion and so far things have been quiet in [Root.GetName]. The State Church has in turn been content to leave most of these people alone as long as they attend services and pay their taxes.
It seems this peace was not meant to last. The recent collection of Church Silver in the area has been regarded as an open declaration of war by the local population and they are now taking up arms to protect their Churches from the greedy hands of [Root.Owner.Capital.GetCapitalName].

$THEOLOGIAN$$INQUISITOR$ has had an exemplary career, starting as a low level local priest and finally reaching the very top of the Church hierarchy and has over the years come to be regarded as a pillar of the Church of [Root.GetName]. It is therefore very troubling that $THEOLOGIAN$$INQUISITOR$ have begun to take issue with the direction the Church is heading. While $THEOLOGIAN$$INQUISITOR$ has steered clear of directly criticizing [Root.Monarch.GetName] [Root.Monarch.GetHerselfHimself] it is hard for anyone to take $THEOLOGIAN_POSS_PRONOUN$$INQUISITOR_POSS_PRONOUN$ words as anything but harmful for the State Church.

Msg event.pngThe Lingering Hope of Reconciliation

There are still those who long for the time when the Christian faith was unified. While they see the Reformation and the birth of Protestantism as necessary they also lament that it couldn't be done without a schism.
While well intended these kind of leanings can be very harmful to a State Church such as ours and it is therefore a matter of some concern that it seems a number of the officials in our Church as well as some at some of our Seminar are entertaining such ideas.

Msg event.pngProtestant Diaspora

As Christendom grows ever more divided the trickle of religious refugees has grown into a steady stream. Religious conflicts in major Catholic states have caused many Protestant to leave their old home countries. As a Protestant country with our own Church we would be able to offer them protection and we could also make good use of their skills and assets.
Protestantism is, however, far from a unified faith and it is not very likely that all those who come to us will find the Church of [Root.GetName] to match their own beliefs fully. While it would be admirable to receive all Protestant Immigrants it might be more prudent to hand pick those that possess skills we could make good use of.

Msg event.pngCriticism of Official Bible

Having a Bible Translation sanctioned by the state has done much to unify the Protestant faith in our country and it is the opinion of both the general public and most theologians that our translation has resulted in a book far more true to the origins of our religion.
There are, however, also some who find the official Bible translation very lacking. Some groups claim that it is simply outdated and in need of modernization, some that it is too favorable to the ruling state and that we have attempted to make use of it to pacify our subjects. Others again simply see it as not going far enough and still maintain many of the errors that have accumulated over the years in previous versions of the Bible.

Msg event.pngThe Dilemma of [Root.Monarch.GetName]

It is no secret that the marriage of [Root.Monarch.GetName] and [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] spouse isn't the most loving union and producing an heir has turned out to be quite problematic. It is rumored that [Root.Monarch.GetName] has had a number of extra marital affairs and the reputation of our Kingdom is running the risk of becoming tarnished. [Root.Monarch.GetName] will not hear of a word about divorce, however, and considers such a thing deeply immoral.
Instead [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] argues that if bigamy could work for the patriarchs then perhaps that could be used as a precedent for allowing [Root.Monarch.GetHerHim] a second union. The Reformers that have been contacted to give their opinions on this have been very hesitant, to say the least, but [Root.Monarch.GetName] seems determined this is the best solution to [Root.Heir.GetHerHis] problem.

Msg event.pngOverextended Courts

The incorporation of Mosaic Law directly into the laws of [Root.GetName] has led to an unprecedented growth of our country's Justice System in some parts of the country. A steady stream of accusations has grown into an almost unmanageable number of court cases. Not only that but the number of death sentences has also risen greatly and where it not for the already established practice to give dispensation for such a conviction if the convicted can present a certain sum of money as compensation we would have a very bad situation on our hands.

Whether the body of Christ is really physically present during the Eucharist or not was one of the main points on which Protestants and Catholics disagreed during the reformation. Some, however, have trouble even accepting the Lutheran Sacramental Union. A recent publication that has gained some circulation in our country seems to have been authored by one of these groups. It will undoubtedly be forgotten soon enough but in the short term the legitimacy of our State Church is being questioned.

Msg event.pngWitch Trials in [Root.GetName]

The transition from being part of the wider Roman Catholic Church to the local Church of [Root.Owner.GetName] has generally worked well but in some areas it has become unclear where authority lies. When there was suspicion of Witchcraft in the old days the Catholic church would often become involved and might temper the outrage of the local population. The reformation on the other hand has done much to strengthen the belief in popular versions of Christianity.
A number of women stand accused of Witchcraft in [Root.GetName] and a search has already begun to find more. Local priests and magistrates have gotten involved in the trials but so far state has not been involved. As the number of women awaiting trial grows larger and larger it may be necessary for us to act.

Due to our motherland's policy of sending religious heretics to the colonies a wide variety of different faiths can be found in our settlements. While they could all be said to be protestant in some form or another they have views that are often starkly opposed to each other on many issues. The province of [Root.GetName] has been settled by large numbers of two theologically opposed churches, one stands closer to the Reformed churches of Europe, while the other stands closer to the Protestant Churches. Both are, however, just as opposed to the control of the State Church they have left behind. Tensions are running high and it may be best to step in now to keep them apart before things escalate.

Msg event.pngReligious Tensions in [Root.GetName]

Few are as tempted by the promise of a new life in the colonies as religious dissenters. As a result our lands are home to a wide variety of different Christian faiths which thanks to the great amount of space to be settled is not as big a problem as it would be back in our mother country.
It is not entirely without local conflicts, however, and it seems word of some of these have now reached our home country. We have received orders from home to be more careful about those demanding religious freedoms in our lands.

Msg event.pngReligious Tensions in [From.GetName]

Many of the heretics in our lands have chosen to settle in the colonies. This is something that for most of the time is beneficial both for us and for the colonies but lately word has reached us of excessive use by some groups of the religious freedoms colonial life entails. Representatives of the Church of [Root.GetName] feel we must act now or the colonies might inspire heretics back home as well.

Msg event.pngState seen to protect Witches

Our attempts to temper the increasingly paranoid hunt for Witches in [From.GetName] have been entirely misunderstood by the local population there. Our emissaries have themselves been accused of witchcraft and parts of the population have grown very hostile towards any outside power that attempts to protect the Witches that supposedly haunt the region.

Msg event.pngWitch Hunt Spiraling Out of Control

The most horrifying stories have reached us from the ongoing witch trials in the countryside. In a single day over 70 women have been tried and killed and the search for more goes on and on without local authorities as much as having asked for the opinion of the state. The death toll and the loss of central authority are likely to scar the region forever. Leaders of our State Church in [Root.Capital.GetCapitalName] seem to be as powerless as everyone else to stop this.
