Yes, there are.

Also these guys.

Besides those if your a human and you live in the Imperium and it comes to light that you do not believe in the God-Emperor, savior of Mankind, you get introduced to Mr. Bolter real quick.

Or your a Xeno and deserve to die.

In short "no".

The Imperium is perhaps the WORST place to live in, there are a lot of similarities between it and every vile dictatorship, religion, politician and what not. There is no such thing as liberty, free speech, free choice, etc.

Makes senes, it was just something that cropped up from time to time in the back of my mind and figured it couldn't hurt to just ask. Though now I'm interested in the Gue'vesa.

I'm hoping that makes more sense than it sounds.
I imagine there is always those kinds of people (but most often fall into the clutches of Chaos).

I imagine that on far-flung outposts where there is not much input from the Imperium, the Emperor is sort of forgotten about as there are other things on their minds. Food, drink, staying alive etc...

Power armour is strong enough to stop everything except shuriken pistol shots. This is because Eldar are majik!

The one on the right is an old Rogue Trader IG mini I think, but I'm fairly sure the other two are not GW minis.

Cool Navy Commissars?

I am doing a short story in Original Works (everyone should have a look at this section in Heresy). It involves a Navy ship, well actually a Battlebarge to be more precise. Putting aside any Chaplains that may be on the command deck, (let's say that they have the day off), and the fact that the personnel are Navy and not Guard etc. (who have Commissars to keep the faith), who watches over the Navy?
Who are the dedicated servants who keep watch over the weak and administer the Emperor's grace if the need should arrive?

@Brother Emund Im fairly certain they would have someone from either the commissariat or the inquisition to do that role. Failing that you might be able to get away with someone from the Ecclesiarchy. If you're doing a short story though i wouldn't worry too much about accuracy on this.
