Quote from the Leader

''Religion is a sublime and glorious thing, the bond of society on earth, and the connector of humanity with the Divine nature; but there is nothing so dangerous to man as the wresting of its principles, or forcing them beyond their due bound: this is above all others the readiest way to destruction''.

I think it means now their nation is all cultural and diverse so we shouldn't be kicking people out or anything. Therefore we should just let it be and reconstruct, also that everyone should be treated equally.
