*a pinned letter on the former temple grounds * I, Aleena Cloudlily, Priestess of Inil, resign publicly from the Temple of Six, or what's left of it. This so called 'temple' has not only been influenced by other guilds but also I find incredibly ineffective, tyrannical and wrong. It is heretical to silence other fellow priests and priestesses who represent their elders simply because they do not match your own! Not only is this act inconsiderate, immoral and disgraceful but a high disrespect to each other who dedicated our lives to our elders. We must be free to express ourselves, influence our ways through the populous and not be silenced! EACH one of us is responsible for what we do as adults, none should have power to tell the other what to do. This temple has caused nothing but plaintive and stress arguments and conflicts among many individuals and respective priests and clerics and paladins. Our group does nothing. Forcing us together is not only unnecessary but we don't even work together at all. Period.
Our different takes of morality, right and wrong, and religious beliefs are so staggering different that having ONE person represent us all would deem it not only impossible but fallacious an act of silencing us all in submission. This would not stand! I also believe that using the 'phantom' and self-given power of being a 'pillar' of the temple as a power over others either through the council to silence individuals who may or may not even follow our beliefs incredibly illicit, oppressive and totalitarian!
Now that the council is a "self-proclaimed" government body, which I find very concerning, I can definitely no longer participate in such ambitious tendencies. By my practice of the Holy Realm, and as a serving vowed Mage of White and Priestess of Inil, it is condemned for us to be a leader of any government body as it is a conflict of interest to our vows. However, we are still free to voice our opinion and participate politically and be part of houses and guilds. A priestess of Inil cannot be involved in deciding punishments and condemning of others, it is against our ways. I much rather be on the side of defense and be there to advocate innocence to those who have either committed an incidental wrong or pursue a chance for their ability to restore their name by correcting any mistakes or wrongs made through vindication and fair trail, with true justice that is a balance of both law and mercy. Priests who use the excuse of the elders to demonstrate desire for ruling power to silence others is heretical of the highest accord. Power hungry tendencies is a damnation and is a shameful act by the eyes of the Elders.
It is a sin. This is not a temple, it is a handful of people trying subdue other voices! A farce! I wish no part of it!
I shall pray for you all to see the error of your ways, i recognize that we all create mistakes, myself included, and will carry no ill will against you. But I cannot continue this group any longer. I will however, erect the Relica of the Six and the Shrine of Ini in the 5th month in a open public place. I and many others yearn for a quiet beautiful place for prayer. I will do my best to provide this sanctuary and monument. The Relica of the Six is a free-people monument allowing anyone of any race to pray and give tribute to their elders peaceful and safety. It will have no leader, no ruling body or any political hold except caring for it's location with respective priests and shrine maidens and monks. It is a safe haven for prayers and a place for inspiration. How religion should be like. Any who wish to learn more, please kindly do send a red cap my way. I hope for it to be a beautiful and lovely place to inspire hope, praise and repose from our great creators in an open public place filled with artwork and lore. Regards, Priestess of Inil Aleena Cloudlily.
