[SUBMITTED] I've Got 95 Problems But @@FAITH@@ Ain't One

[name] I've Got 95 Problems But @@FAITH@@ Ain't One

[validity] must have an official faith, moderate corruption
[description] A religious scholar named Bart Luthier recently incited controversy when he publicly nailed his manifesto onto the doors of numerous religious leaders around @@NAME@@. He claims that his writings have uncovered 95 theological disagreements with @@FAITH@@, many of which revolve around corruption within the faith. Moreover, his congregation has taken to traveling across the nation, where their advocacy of a 'reformed' denomination has begun attracting a surprising number of converts.

[option] "The nerve of that man!" fumes your spiritual advisor @@RANDOMNAME@@, @@HIS@@ face beet-red. "Luthier is threatening our sacrosanct religious unity! His reckless preaching preys upon the weak-minded, dividing families and friends over a fraudulent faith. He is worse than a heretic: he's a public menace! For the sake of the nation, Bart Luthier must be rounded up and jailed at once!"
[effect] the act of reporting blasphemy is known as 'Orthodoxxing'

[option] "Thou shall not position Luthier to claim Martyrdom," recites medieval historian @@RANDOMNAME@@, reading off a yellowed roll of parchment. "Thy false prophet's disciples close ranks, becoming nigh impenetrable to reason. Coax @@DEMONYMADJECTIVE@@ nature in thy stead, let thee test Luthier's proclaimed incorruptibility. Reinstate titles of Nobility whilst bestowing highest honours among thy primary agitators. Amidst thine peerage, in due time even Luthier shall grimly realize his willing price."
[effect] among peers is when @@AN@@ @@DEMONYM@@ feels the most alone

[option] "I cannot believe what I'm hearing!" tuts your sister, having just returned from a vacation in Brancaland. "The @@NAME@@ I know tolerates all different backgrounds and religions. Who cares if someone thinks a little differently from you? In fact, why don't you throw a little taxpayer money Bart's way and go down to his congregation in a show of good faith? In fact, let's do the same for multiple minority religions! The resulting publicity tour will go a long way in establishing how religious intolerance truly has no home here."
[effect] taxpayers receive expenditure reports from the Grand High Poobah of the Order of Violet

[option] "Fascinating," mutters one of your aides while browsing Luthier's manuscript. "With all due respect, the guy makes good points. If you hire him as a religious advisor to work this out, a theological split might be avoided altogether. A little constructive criticism never hurts, right?"
[effect] the writing style of religious texts often changes mid-sentence

I had a similar draft idea floating around about a year or two ago or so, with a nearly identical title. Weird. Not accusing you of foul play, of course, just that it was odd.

Anyway, I like this considerably more than mine. Though I do think that at least moderate spirituality should be added to the validity, I mean, more secular minded nations just wouldn't care all that much. Though then again, that's probably what the third option is for.

I like it, and the "Orthodoxxing" line is really good.

That's really funny. I'm actually not the biggest fan of the current title; it was the only one that popped into my head at the time. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'll think about the spirituality/religiousness aspect, just to cover the bases.

I actually disagree, I didn't see that

Perhaps you could say something closer to "nailed his manifesto to the door of @@NAME@@'s largest/head church"

It also says "pubically nailed" and that's accidentally grotesque hahaha so you may want to fix that

I was going to suggest the same, either that or just change it from being nailed to @@LEADER@@'s door to another more public setting.

Theocracy is on the policy page, but it's a pseudo-policy based on having minimal religious freedom, rather than a genuine flag.

In any case, it's far from unusual for national leaders to take sides in religious schisms, even if they aren't the official "Pope-equivalent" of the religion.

I've made Luthier tack his writings onto the doors of religious leaders. In this scenario, it should still be appropriate for @@LEADER@@ to weigh in.
