    Splitting churches...

    Thanks and another question:

    - ->much "difficulty" should be piled on his shoulders.

    As long as the priest worship the same god and don't have wierd believes which
    goes the opposit way to what the god wants, then nothing should happen to the
    priestly powers. As I see it, for the gods it don't matter if there are one or
    two or... churches spreading his words, the important thing is how many
    worshipers they have.

    Don't forget that other fractions may help this "new" church as it weekens the
    western fraction.

    If the priest's churches has followed the ideas of the western fraction to
    100% before the split, then many worshipers and clerics will support the old
    belives and that can lead to an civil war within the PC's holdings. Which can
    in the end mean that the PC looses holding levels without beeing contested by
    the motherchurch from which he wanted to split.
