LINK TO PREVIOUS SERMON
Greetings again my Simian Brothers and Sisters, May the spirit of The Lawgiver be with you.
Today’s sermon is inspired by the recent speech before the Citizen’s Council by our new Supreme Commander of the Army, General Ursus. With myself and Minister of Science Dr. Zaius in attendance, the General addressed the alarming reports of strange manifestations within the Forbidden Zone.
As the General pointed out in his speech, the Forbidden Zone has rightfully been closed for centuries, the whole area proclaimed as deadly by our Great Lawgiver in the Sacred Scrolls. But now we have evidence that that vast, barren area is inhabited (by who or by what we do not know). I whole-heartedly agree with General Ursus that it is our holy duty to enter it, to put our feet upon it, to put the mark of our guns and our wheel and our flags upon it, and as the General so eloquently expressed, “to expand the boundaries of our ineluctable power, and to invade!” The gathered crowd cheered exuberantly at these last words, although I noticed a disgraceful lack of enthusiasm from some elements among the Chimpanzee section.
