Grand Inter-Denominational Christian Alliance [MT/PMT]

Postby Transnapastain » Sun Dec 02, 2012 9:15 am

OOC: Lineale started this alliance previously, credit for the OP, with some changes made by me, really go to him, as does credit for the idea. I just wanted to reboot this, let it be know.

The Grand Inter-Denominational Christian Alliance, otherwise known as GI-DCA. Our purpose is to protect our Christian Brethren, our Faith, and the human beings which our Lord created to worship Him. I do not consider this alliance to be military in nature.

I should mention this alliance does not preclude any government types from apply, though any communist nations will more than likely not be admitted, due to the clear stance of Communism on Christianity.

Modern and early to mid-PMT only please.

The Alliance will:
  • Uphold each nations Sovereignty
  • Allow nations to trade freely among themselves
  • Not restrict any nations individual rights
  • Render assistance in any war where the member is not the aggressor, as much as possible
  • NOT assist in wars in which the member is the aggressor, except in select cases
  • Not participate in ANY holy wars

- Questions regarding faith
Does the majority of your nations population believe:
That Jesus is the Messiah?
That Jesus was God's only Son?
That Jesus is Divine?
That God is all-powerful?
That Jesus is the only way to Heaven?
That the Bible is the best way to know God and His commandments, and that it is His Holy Book?


Preamble

We, the Christian Nations of this Alliance, do hereby declare to uphold the wishes of our fellow nations where possible, to listen to our neighbors in good faith, and to love one another as Christ does.

We agree to uphold the standards of the Bible and standards of life and liberty. We agree to disagree on matters of theological importance, and to work past them through all circumstances as Christ would.

Article I: Establishment of Core Beliefs

We are a Christian Alliance, and as such it is necessary to establish only the most simple of beliefs:
Jesus is God's own Son.
Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. There is no way to the Father except through Him.
Jesus died so that we may live, and go into Heaven and be with Him and His Father.
The Bible is the sovereign book written through God's chosen, the ultimate law and book of knowledge, and by inspiration directly from God.
Thou Shall Not Murder
Thou Shall Not Rob the Man next door.
Thou Shall Respect the Other religions of this world
We shall uphold the truths of the Bible, and the truths of our Lord through peaceful ways.

Article II: None aggression among member states

We agree to a mutual non-aggression pact with all members. We agree to uphold this pact, and understand that if violated, it will result in expulsion from the alliance for the aggressor.

Article III, Section A: Arbitration and conflict resolution

We agree to settle disputes among ourselves in a diplomatic fashion, never utilizing violence. A nation can request a third party arbiter to be appointed by the alliance. Nations requesting arbitration agree to abide by the decision of the arbiter.

Article IV: Alliance Administration and Organization

To facilitate unity and effective leadership, we agree to establish two councils within the alliance

Article IV:, Section A: Alliance Administration and Organization The Lower Council

We hereby establish the election of two councils, one which contains all members of the Alliance.

Article IV: Section A, subsection 1: Alliance Administration and Organization, alliance executive power until elections are completed

At this time, the delegation from Transnapastain will administer the alliance, exercising the power of the Executive Council. After ten (10) nations have joined the alliance, elections will be held.

Article IV:, Section B: Alliance Administration and Organization: The High (Executive) Council

A second council, an executive branch which is elected by the Lower Council. It would contain three members, and be called the High Council or the Executive Council. This High Council will concern itself on missionary work, proper recognition of Christian nations and their needs, the legitimacy of war claims, admission of further nations into the Alliance and ejection of nations from the Alliance.

Article IV: Section B, subsection 1: Alliance Administration and Organization, elections for Executive Council

To establish the first Executive Council, and after ten (10) nations have been admitted to the alliance, the Lower Council will be eligible to vote for one (1) nation to represent the alliance on the high council. A nation may not vote for itself.

Article IV: Section B, subsection 2: Alliance Administration and Organization, repeal of Article IV, section A, subsection 1

After the outcome of the election is decided, the delegate form Transnapastain will relinquish control of the Executive Council to the elected members, thereby repealing Article IV, Section A, subsection 1

Article IV: Section B, subsection 3: Alliance Administration and Organization, Election to fill a vacancy on the High Council1

To fill a vacancy of the high Council, Lower Council will be eligible to vote for one (1) nation to represent the alliance on the high council. A nation may not vote for itself. If the Lower Council can not reach a conciseness, the nation departing the council may name a successor from the nations who have tied in the vote

If the Lower Council can not reach a conciseness, and the nation departing the alliance refuses, or is unable, to name a successor, the Higher Council will vote, and must reach a unanimous decision.

Article IV, Section C: Alliance Administration and Organization, Executive Council Limitations of Power

We hereby establish a limitation of power to the Executive branch; any act passed by the Executive branch that is overturned by more than 60% of the Lower Council will be taken back and re-examined until a compromise is found. Neither Council is at all allowed to create a 'Creed' or list of theological beliefs unless it is a task given to them by both Councils and approved by at least 90% of both Councils. No actions of the member states necessarily represent the beliefs of the entire Council, and will not be allowed unless consent by 60% of the Lower Council allows it.

Article IV, Section D: Alliance Administration and Organization, funding

It is the duty of every alliance member to contribute to the financial well being of the alliance.

Each member organization is expected to contrite no less than 1% of its gross annual income towards alliance affairs. This money will be used to finance
  • Administration of the alliance - To be used for administration purposes, such as event hosting
  • Missionary work - Used to fund non-denominational missionary work both inside of member nations and within foreign states. Missions may include educational, humanitarian, and/or medical services.
  • GI-DCA Relief Fund - Used to provide disaster relief to both member nations and foreign states
  • Discretionary/Emergency funds- Used to cover extraneous actions such as military deployment of national forces r to subsidized other portions of the budget.

Article IV, Section D, subsection 1: Alliance Administration and Organization, funding allocation

The following outlines the allocation of funding to alliance programs.

Allocation of GI-DCA funding

  • Administration: 5%
  • Missionary actions: 25%
  • GI-DCA Relief fund: 30%
  • Discretionary/Emergency funds: 40%

Article IV, Section D, subsection 2: Alliance Administration and Organization, Examination of allocation and redistribution of funding allocation

At the beginning of each fiscal year, the Executive Council will examine the distraction of funding to ensure it continues to represent the alliances best interests. If the distribution of finding is deemed acceptable, the Executive Council has the power to retain the current allocations with a unanimous vote.

If the Executive Council sees a need to redistribute the funding allocation, it will draft a new allocation table and present it to the Lower Council, which will vote to pass the new allocation table with a unanimous vote.

size=150]Article IV, Section E: Alliance Administration and Organization, Withdrawal from the alliance[/size]

Every member nation reserves the right to exit the alliance at any time, for any, or no, reason.

Article V, Section A: Military Affairs: Procedure for initiating alliance involvement in military affairs

Every member has the right to petition the alliance to become involved in a conflict, either acting in defense of a member nation/organization or acting on offense in the interest of a third party, be that third party the government of a nation or an institution within a nation.

Initiation of military action should only occur as a last resort after all other diplomatic solutions have been tried, and failed.

It is important to note that involvement in a conflict is entirely voluntary for all member states, and at no time are any member organizations required to provide monetary, material, or military assistance to any cause.

Article V, Section A, subsection 2: Military Affairs, Just War evaluation

A member nation may appeal to the alliance to become militarily involved in the following situations:

  • Defense of a member nation/organization
  • Liberation of a violently oppressed population.

Article V, Section A, subsection 2: Military Affairs, Just War evaluation

That member-nation will present its case to the Executive Council who will use the following guidelines to determine if the conflict meets the criteria required to initiate GI-DCA support

-Good and just purpose: The war must have a demonstrated moral purpose. Not national interest, self-gain, or simple exercise of power. For the purposes of the alliance, there must be a threat to the sovereignty or freedom of a member or it must meet the guidelines in Article V, section B.

-Licitly Instituted: The war must have been declared by the member-state according to the usual legal guidelines

-Peaceful Motive: The resolution of the conflict and the end to violence must be the end goal of the war.

-Prospect of Success: The conflict cannot be a blatant "suicide mission" and there must be a general chance of success.

-Last Resort: Diplomatic and other reasonable means must have been attempted and failed.

-Justice: The nation the alliance intervenes on the side of must demonstrate it is on the moral high-ground. ie Did not start the war, did not instigate conflict through human rights violations, is in accordance with international law

Article V, Section B: Military Affairs: Alliance involvement in military affairs,

Upon establishing that a conflict both meets the situational and just war requirements, the Executive Council will authorize any nations willing to participate to act under the authority of the GI-DCA. A member of the Executive Council will be appointed to oversee the operation and insure that forces operating under the GI-DCA banner remain compliant with alliance and international law. The appointed member of the Executive Council can, or can not, be involved in the pursuit of the conflict.

Nations wishing to contribute to the cause may do so with monetary assistance, material assets, or military deployments.

No. I'm simply busy.

I had never imagined this alliance was going to be huge, or that nations would be flocking to join it. Overall, Christianity doesn't seem to play well here. People that want to are welcome to apply. If people have ideas for roleplay, that's fine too.

If you came into this expecting it to be huge, I'm sorry to disappoint. P

Yep, these sorts of alliances tend to be small and quiet. I am open to RP ideas, just send them on..
Hopefully in a little time, we can get enough members to operate fully (with the Executive Council and all) until then, we'll just do the best we can.
In short, this can be as active as we make it.. just because there are not a huge number of members doesn't mean we can't work with what we have!

*nods* I think it would be useful regardless to have an IC discussion thread where we can propose initiatives and the like. Just because the alliance won't commonly be getting involved in military conflicts doesn't mean it can't work to provide humanitarian aid in areas of civil war/unrest and natural disaster.

I do agree, rotating chairmen and a single council are both ideas to be considered.

Thats a fair point.

I'm not opposed to using this thread for discussion, though, unless you feel like we need a separate members only thread? If, however, people are interested in having an IC summit meeting, I'll gladly put it together.

I knew one of the ACA nations was a theocracy but I couldn't recall who it was. :P

Accepted, of course.

It's perfectly fine, under the current charter, if nations aren't fully Christian or allow other religions to be practiced.

Oh, right, while I'm thinking about it.

I don't recall if I said, but I was aiming for this to be a MT/PMT alliance, is anyone here FT?

Not sure. Anyways, I think we should play a role in condemning those who use the Christian faith as an excuse to wage war. Boycott said nations good, and provide aid to the country being attacked. It may seem like we are going against our brothers in faith, but we shouldn't allow for Christianity to be used as en excuse to wage war.

It seems that they forget the commandment "Thou shall not kill".

Also, to boost activity and the amount of possible RPs we could forge alliances with: The Knights Templar, The Roman Catholic Church, The Thrinian Catholic Church, and The Christian Treaty Orgainization (however the C.T.O's policies on war don't sit well with me).

To the first, do you have examples of such activities?

To the second, the goal is worthwhile.

I'm for at least opening cordial bonds if not defining some sort of formal relationship with the Roman Catholics, the Thrinian Catholics, and the LDS. I must, however, take exception to the CTO given some of their more aggressive policies. However, that is simply my opinion.

A Christian Nation (Catholic or no)? Why not join the Grand Inter-Denominational Christian Alliance?! - Silar is a member state
