Aye.  It is essential that one hold their alignment to themselves
or between themselves and their diety (if within the theme).
No one should be forced to wear an alignment badge and it's 
downright important for it to be hidden in most circumstances.

Who really wants to run for office on a chaotic evil platform
against one running on a lawful good platform? ;)

Yep I also need something along these lines, but it goes a bit 
further with the oracles. Certain rituals and customs must be held to 
for channeling to take place.
