|Our religion is the fundamental part of our heritage. Trigunian Patriarchal Church has been the spiritual guide of our nation for so many years. But today, many heretics and heathers, immoral atheists have attacked our great religious establishment. They hate our sacred heritage and undermine our culture and monarchy by spreading their unholy beliefs.|
With this act, we are going to protect our nation from immoral propaganda and enstablish Hosianism as our state religion.
(Andrey Drozdov, Chairman of the Monarchist party of Trigunia)
