Pactum De Singularis Caelum
Covenant of One Heaven
Article 111 - Covenant Amendment
Before the Day of Redemption, it may be necessary from time to time to amend this Covenant for the benefit of good government of One Heaven.
Providing it has been proven that the proposed amendment does not in any way contravene the Principles of this Covenant, nor dismantle the primary objects of this Covenant, nor eliminate nor weaken any Divine Remedy then a minor amendment to this Covenant is permissible.
A clause amendment is where an specific clause contained in this Covenant is approved for amendment either through the complete replacement of all the words contained within the clause, or minor word alteration.
A clause amendment shall only be permitted under one or more of the following conditions:
(i) That the clause contains a style (capitals), typographical or simple grammatical error which will be corrected through the proposed amendment; or
(ii) That the clause contains a significant grammatical error which renders any true intention of the clause impossible and that the proposed amendment will correct this error to the original intent; or
(iii) That the clause contains a significant error contradicting one or more other clauses of the Covenant and that the proposed amendment will correct this error to the original intent; and
(iv) The proposed amendment does not relate in anyway to any reference to Official powers or procedures; and
(v) It is before the Day of Judgment.
No clause amendment is permitted after the Day of Judgment. Any clause amendment that occurs after the Day of Judgment shall be null and void ab initio (from the beginning).
A clause enhancement amendment is where a new clause or enhanced meaning to a clause is added to the Covenant.
Clause enhancement shall only be permitted under one or more of the following conditions:
(i) That the new clause does not contradict any existing clause, nor diminish the effect of any existing clause of the Covenant
At the 2nd Great Conclave delegates shall be permitted to vote on proposed clause enhancements providing no proposed enhancement contravenes anything stated by this article.
Amendments to the Covenant after the Day of Judgment must be framed as a free and fair vote to the delegates to a Great Conclave. For an amendment to be valid and enacted requires a two/thirds of the total votes cast by the total delegates to a Great Conclave.
The material alteration of an article, including changing its title and essential function is not permitted.
