Public Notice N. 2
A. Concerning Religious Matters in the United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA)
There are slight variations in the Judeo-Christian 10 Commandments, as the page shows:
However, the conclusions are the same, because the foundational material is essentially the same: the Holy Bible.
The Cesidian 14 Commandments are a post-modern extension of the good ethical rules above, and the rules apply to God (or Gods, since Adonai and Elohim are actually plural nouns), but also to their wishing-to-be adopted sons and daughters in human form:
Bathetic CommandmentsThe Cesidian Church, which honours the 14 Commandments, is affiliated with Saint Luke Evangelical Christian Ministries, a Nondenominational church, and with Universal Life Church World Headquarters, an Nondenominational and Independent Catholic faith-based church. The Cesidian Church will do nothing to deliberately prevent the adoption of human beings by the LORD/Adonai, will do nothing to deliberately prevent their Salvation. This same policy also applies to the UMMOA, since the UMMOA follows Cesidian law.
B. About the Cesidian Church and its Primate Bishop
The Cesidian Church was founded by the later Governor of the UMMOA back in 2001 (it existed prior to the UMMOA), and tries to observe 8 Jewish holidays: Pesach (Passover), Hag-Ha-Matzot (Unleavened Bread), Bikkurim (Firstfruits), Shavout (Pentecost), Rosh Hashanah (Trumpets), Yom Kippur (Atonement), Succoth (Tabernacles), and Chanukkah (Lights). However, the customs are different, and the calendar followed is the Cesidian calendar, not the Jewish calendar. The Sabbath falls on a special day in the Cesidian calendar called Jeuday.
Cesidians, i.e. members/followers of the Cesidian Church, can recite the Rosary using Catholic and Ecumenical rosaries, as well as Buddhist wrist, hand, or full malas with a different number of beads. GM foods are not considered kosher by Cesidians (that means they are illegal), and the approach to health is also holistic and natural.
The Primate of the Cesidian Church was made a Bishop or High Priest by both Saint Luke Evangelical Christian Ministries, and the Universal Life Church World Headquarters; was made International President of the International Network of Bishops & Archbishops by the Founding Bishop of the organisation; and he is also a Member of the Board of Bishops, and a Voting Member of the Electoral College of Bishops of the Universal Life Church World Headquarters.
Besides being the Governor of the UMMOA, the Receiver of Taxes of the UMMOA, the President and Founder of the Cesidian Root globally-distributed Internet, and the Bishop of the Cesidian Church, the Hon. Most Rev. Dr. Cesidio Tallini is also an adopted Native American Medicine Man; is Communications Director for the Organization of Emerging African States; is the Special Representative for CCLP Worldwide at the United Nations Headquarters who was instrumental, in February 2012, for their recommendation for Special Consultative Status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC); and finally, he is also a Casual Mailhandler for the United States Postal Service (USPS), the second largest employer in the United States, as well the deliverer of nearly half the world's mail.
If you have read malicious attacks elsewhere on the Governor of the UMMOA, the President and Founder of the Cesidian Root, and the Bishop of the Cesidian Church, which in any way seem to negate his maturity, sanity, and/or dignity as a human being, please ask yourself the following questions:
The United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA) does have a universal currency. It is based on fine silver ("999" purity or better), and we have a national treasury account currently worth about 1303 US dollars (USD):
Our currency is the Cyberterra dollar (CTD), and there are about 1586 CTD in existence.
While an account in CTD does exist, the UMMOA Treasury account, this account is not a demurrage- or interest-bearing account, since it is a national account whose value depends directly on the value of silver in world financial markets, and not on the contributions of individual Ummoagians. This account is not an individual's account, and we shall not deprive any UMMOA citizen of such an account, as per the rules mentioned in the Cesidian 14 Commandments above. Demurrage-bearing accounts would lose a little value through time. The loss, in effect, is a form of taxation by the State.
There are currently two Ummoagians who pay direct monthly taxes in foreign currency to the UMMOA, and this tax money helps to maintain Cesidian Root servers.
Several other citizens support the nation through donations of their technical services, and/or technical resources to the Cesidian Root (technological ambassadors).
Another citizen supports the nation through the educational services she provides to Saint René Descartes University (educational ambassador).
Other citizens support the UMMOA through their work as a UMMOA diplomats, as civic leaders within the Fifth World Community (5WC), and/or as SIGNOR Games ambassadors (diplomatic, civic, and sport ambassadors).
One esteemed Russian national provides support to the UMMOA which would be considered "beyond the call of duty", and recently received an UMMOA Diplomatic ID card in recognition of these extraordinary contributions.
Several organisations not incorporated in either Cyberterra (CT) or the Fifth World Community (5WC) also provide support to the UMMOA, and/or its Governor.
The UMMOA is affiliated with, accredited by, or has consultative status with, the following external or foreign intergovernmental organisations (IGOs) and international non-governmental organisations (INGOs):
