Feel free to join if you "love" God and his children. Express your "love" my taking the Nats land and making it our own. By joining this clan you'll not only express your "love", you'll be part of the brotherhood for which will revolutionize this island. This clan is merely a way of saying "Hey, I love the Nats and I want to make things better for them".

*This is not a hate group.

Why do so many people these days feel the need to satirize religion in a metafictional sense.

Are evangelical natives allowed to join?

Why would they?  Christianity promises IIRC, eternal salvation and life.  Witness the miracle of Jesus returning from the dead.

The native Jesus has returned from the dead 111 times.  Wow.  That's some religion.

Silence, you silly child. The historical Jesus (who never walked on water, raised the dead, or was born on the day of the flying fatman, mind you) is the prototype of compassionate leaders. The character named Jesus on Shartak is nothing but an imitation.

Why don't you go bend over for Cthulhu and mumble about your anti-religious views to yourself.

well, the Flying Spaghetti Monster (Ai! Ai! Pasta Ftaghn!)  tells us that the number of pirates is linked to global warming, so I think that's casus belli (sp?) for a campaign to wipe out every last pirate on the island.

Nats (natives) are not allowed to join but they are free to make their own Nat branch of the group.

This is not a satirical religious group. I merely want to bring the ideals which have made America the most powerful country and in History into Shartak. We need an outsider revolution. God Demands it.

Oh I'm sorry, then it's not metafiction. (You're unaware that it is satirical)

You're still a gimp though.

How is a historical Jesus (or Joshua ben Joseph, if you prefer), shorn of any miracle-working, a religious one? Certainly not a Christian one.

Kurtz, I can see you're troubled by my comments saying that Yeshua ben Yosef was devoid of miracles, but Jesus was bereft of miracles his entire life. It was his followers in their utter love and respect for him after his death that made him born of immaculate conception, walk on water, raise the dead, and resurrect on Easter.

And there is nothing wrong with him being as human as the rest of us.

On topic: Is Manifest Destiny going to try to make shartak brown like that Shartak Deforestation Movement fiasco? It's just way too much work for a bunch of geeks, even if they run 6-8 alts each.

I'm not troubled in the least. I'm an atheist. I agree with you, I just wasn't sure how it squared with you being annoyed at religious satire (although I think from the OP's comments it's more satirising colonial land-grabs, like many of the Outsider factions).
