Bill: Religious consensus of a nation
Votes: This is an ordinary bill. It requires more yes votes than no votes. This bill will not pass any sooner than the deadline.
Voting deadline: May 2354
|We shall hereby declare that the one and only official state religion shall be Hobaism. It shall be allowed for foreigners to practice other religions in private, being that they are not nationals or citizens of Darnussia. No other religion shall be recognised and allowed in public.|
What follows is the official doctrine of the hobaist converting:
The Revolutionary Council for Justice and Democracy and the Government of Great Democratic Republic of Darnussia will henceforth accept that there is and ever shall be one true religion of the people of the Country and that this religion is the only way to salvation of the soul. To this end, the one true religion of the Country shall be, Hobaism as taught through the word of the One True Voice, Keith be Praised.
Accepting that the only way to salvation is to accept the teachings of Hoba and the Spirits and that all peoples wish to have their ever lasting souls saved, the Government will introduce that the current National religion should have all peoples of this fair Republic as its members in order to allow those peoples to accept Hoba into their hearts through the teachings of the One True Voice, Keith be Praised.
To those people who have thus far accepted a false religion, the mandatory joining of the true religion will allow them to learn from within the teachings of Hoba through the One True Voice, Keith be Praised, and so allow their eternal souls to be saved far easier than allowing them to continue without the teachings of the One True Voice, Keith be Praised, than would currently be possible.
Keith be Praised.
For information purpose:
Hoba and thusly Hobaism is only called thus due to it being the translation from Ancient Hobrazian. A literal translation would be "Land God" or "God of the Land" (or Spirit if preferred).
Basically, Hobaism isn't about any particular political dichtomony. You can be socialist, capitalist, whatever.
What you must do though, is accept the teachings of Hoba into the very soul of your being in order to be saved and reach enlightenment.
Another important aspect of the religion is that Hoba is merely the top deity. Below him are the Spirits of the Land and they can be from anywhere in the world as they are, literally, of the land. It allows the religion to be personalised within each Country whilst maintaining the same basic structure (Hoba). The Spirit of the land is in the Great Democratic Republic of Darnussia the One True Voice, Keith be Praised.

|Message||"Ma'avak Hadasha condemn this move as oppressive towards the Jewish population as well as the Christians of the nation. Not long ago independent Darnussia was a supporter of religious freedom as well as a supporter of our struggle against persecution but now we see it revert to its Deltarian era and the continued oppression of the Jewish people.|
Sadly we also notice that the percentage of Hobaists in the nation is the same as the number of Lusitanians, once again it appears that a minority is oppressing the Darnussian majority. We hope to see this end soon and pray our neighbours will be quickly delivered back to the shining light of freedom."

No wait, we can actually also say this:
Freedom shall be found in the heavens. The hobaist enligthenment shall lead the way to freedom. There is absolutely more freedom in current Darnussia than when under Deltarian dictatorship.

|Message||"We are simply trying to cement the religious views of the vast majority of the population of Beiteynu in national law, you are trying to impose dictatorship of a minority religion and marginalise the rest."|

|Message||So much for the "Freedom and Democratic" society you stood for, you clearly violated all the principles of the Darnussian Sovereignty Council. The new Darnussian National Authority will be establishing law and order in the provinces of Clenon and Nihaton, we have already begain mobilizating freedom fighters.|

|Random fact: By default, the Head of Government is the ultimate figure of authority in the Cabinet/government. By convention, Heads of Government are expected to consult with and gain the approval of Cabinet colleagues (including those from other parties) for their actions, but they remain ultimately responsible for what the government does. Cabinet Ministers who disagree seriously enough with the Head of Government would usually be expected to resign, although of course their respective parties can manoeuvre to replace the Head of Government by proposing a new Cabinet bill or triggering an early election. The Head of Government may dismiss a Cabinet Minister and replace them with a chosen temporary replacement. In practical terms it may not always be possible to arrange this through the game mechanics, but the dismissal and replacement will be recognised under the Game Rules if the player controlling the Head of Government simply puts forward a bill, announcing the change.|
