The GCPoL will not support this bill. Article 3 is the only part of this bill we might consider, but not the others. We understand the reasoning of such proposals, but we cannot agree with punishing citizens solely based on their religion. Also, we are against the state's intervention of appointing religion ministers.

the possible sabotage and the environmental disaster following have once again proven that our tolerance has caused this situation. For decades, centuries even, we have tried to accept and live together with people of a different faith. Now we see that they are not trying to do so, and that they are undermining our society and try to dictate their believes. We are being punished right now, not them.
This bill has no intention of punishing anyone. Anyone may convert to a religion that is being authorized and recognized by the State. If not, they still have the opportunity to leave our nation and go live abroad, maybe in a community that endorses their believes. This will have a positive effect on both of us groups.
It is about time that we take back control of our nation, for the benefit of our citizens. If we continue to walk the path we have been on for the last century, this scum will take over our national politics and there will be nothing you, me or anyone will be able to do about it.
We have to act now!

After much debate on the ongoing Rapula crisis and after hearing the Education and Culture Minister's statement on the issue, our party has come to the conclusion that it would be best if we gave our support to this bill. While such proposals go against our party's agenda, we are willing to support them if it will keep our nation safe. It really does look like we are under attack from the inside and we really need to act now.

|Random fact: In cases where a party has no seat, the default presumption should be that the party is able to contribute to debates in the legislature due to one of its members winning a seat at a by-election. However, players may collectively improvise arrangements of their own to provide a satisfying explanation for how parties with no seats in the legislature can speak and vote there.|
