Followers of Leisha
The followers of Leisha (Delang: Зесеьј ҩнЉејzа (Cezeqj aunLlejsja), IPA: /zezeqj ɔnɭejʂa/, Kirsh: zezeqj Onl.ejs.a, CXS: zezeqj Onl`ejs`a, abbrv. ЗҩЉ (CauLl), IPA: /zɔɭ/, Kirsh: zOl., CXS: zOl`) is a political-religious society set on conquering the faith of the gods. The society was founded in 967 a.Q. by Leisha of Grune, as a society of students called the Brotherhood of Knowledge, but changed name after their leader was murdered in 990 a.Q.
While they, as other atheists in Illte, rejects any faith in gods, there are several items of contention between the Followers of Leisha and other faiths, including other atheists.
The Followers of Leisha holds these beliefs to be true:
- Killing babies should not be legal, as babies are also Homis.
They have put forth several attempts at revoking the requirement of consciousness as legal protection against infanticide. Last attempt was made this year, 1112 a.Q.
- The Homi are descendants of the Priomi, an ancient humanoid people that has been extinct for several millenniums.
This belief are, according to the Followers, supported by the fact that there has been found several previous settlement from before Illte was covered by water.
- Believing in the faith of the gods hinders the accumulation of knowledge, and needs to be abolished.
Of all of the Followers beliefs, this one has the least overall foundation.
Due to their aggressive opposition towards the faith of the gods, legislation was put into effect in 1058 a.Q., that has made it illegal to evangelize the faith of the Followers. Neither their right of political influence or their right of assembly are affected by the legislation.
- The legislation, The act of equality of faith, makes it illegal to evangelize the claim of descent from the Priomi, unless the belief has been proven to be correct. It also makes it illegal to claim that one faith, for whatever reason, should be held in higher standing than anyone else.
