Since April 5, 2018, It became publicly known to the Chawosaurian Press and also the public and, Chawosaurian Politicians that Johnathan Saint Nicholas Montgomery VII is allegedly a Christian. In both the Society and Politics of Chawosauria, because of the First Brutal War, and Christianization, being a Christian is not socially acceptable and is even a crime in many places of Chawosauria (since 2018).
On April 3, 2018, a whistleblower, Jonathan Blazkowics, leaked to the press a Lutheran Study Bible in Johnathan Montgomery's desk. On April 4, 2018, Montgomery's alleged religion dominated headlines of the Chawosaurian Media, threatening to tarnish and sink the popularity of Johnathan Montgomery.
The scandal also threatened to tarnish the public image of Current Emperor, Degotoga K. Atagulkalu and put him in legal trouble because Johnathan Montgomery and Degotoga Atagulkalu are close relatives. Johnathan Montgomery is DKA's grand-nephew. Most of the Chawopolis Palace threatened the Emperor to launch an investigation into the Religious Affiliations of his cabinet members if he refuses to incriminate his members. This scandal is often nicknamed "JesusGate" because of Montgomery's alleged religious ties with Jesus.
Johnathan Saint Nicholas Montgomery VII was born outside of Chawosauria in the United States in 1990, one of the birth years of Millennials, he was born to an Agnostic mother and a Christian father, he was raised by his father's religion and politics until his father's surprise death in 2001 and became raised his mother's politics, Montgomery slightly secularized his Christian faith and continued to worship Lutheranism.
Montgomery entered Chawosauria in 2006, in his Comrade Papers, he lied about his religion, which under Chawosaurian Law, it is illegal and punishable 60 years in prison. In 2009, he left Chawosauria and returned to the United States, but in 2016, Montgomery returned to Chawosauria and resumed his 2006 Comrade Papers. Between 2016, to 2018, Montgomery's religion was unknown, until a Lutheran Study Bible was discovered, stolen, and leaked to the press.
Emperor, Degotoga K. Atagulkalu Edit
The scandal traps the emperor into a corner of facing inescapable persecution for being an accomplice to Johnathan Montgomery's illegal secret and with having to respond to the press' questions, DKA was forced to deny allegations of JSM's religion. DKA retaliated against the Chawopolis Palace's threat to establish a special counsel to investigate the religious affiliations of DKA's inner circle.

The scandal has crippled JSM's popularity, his approval rating began to fall, from the 90s to the 50s. Most Chawosaurian Voters believe he was lying to stay in power. General trust in the government began to fall as a result of the allegations. JSM said the Lutheran Study Bible wasn't his and said he never own a bible, but the bible had JSM's name on it, JSM said that the bible is a forgery.

Johnathan Montgomery had been hiding from the public and the press since the bible was leaked.
Communist Response Edit
The Chawosaurian Communist Party celebrated the leaking of Montgomery's religion because they know that with Montgomery being challenged by a Communist in the 2019 Comrade Election, Montgomery could lose and break up the Democrat-Republican Party Grip that had been dissolving since the 2007 Comrade Elections.
