The TekMerc Chronicles
Church of the Human Temple
The Church of the Human Temple is a radical anti-cybernetic religious group that regards any augmentation of the human body as an affront to God. They believe that we are all made in his image and therefore divinely perfect. For a person to alter their body is to declare that their lord creator was wrong in his design and they are above him.
There is some disagreement within the ranks of the church as to how far reaching their beliefs extend. Some members believe that the church’s teachings pertain only on cybernetic augmentation and bio-engineering, while other more fundamentalist individuals believe that even tattoos and piercings are an insult to God and should be outlawed.
Revered Jebediah Coltrane is the public face and leader of the church.
