         I don't know -- the Lunars are pretty inclusive. Maybe they are moving towards an orthodoxy -- certainly, they have a political orthodoxy that is parallel but not identical to whatever religious standards they hold (and churches can have standards that the gods don't share), but there should be a fair degree of latitude, given the "We Are All Us" business. Otherwise it would be "We Are All Us, and That Means...." Of course, on the seventh hand, the Lunars could all be hypocrites, but that's kind of -- definitive.
