Vampires in the Catholic Church and the Authority/ AVL

Ok….so I am for once really angry at myself when it comes to this blog. I was on vacation so I wasn’t able to post my theory about Antonia wanting vengeance because vampires in the Catholic Church wanted to get rid of all the witches. I also wasn’t able to post my theory that she wants all vampires to meet the sun (which Bill said in the Comic Con preview) because she was burned at the stake herself……ALL OF WHICH OF COURSE WAS JUST REVEALED of course.

HOWEVER, that luckily wasn’t the entirety of the theory…

Recall that the Magister, who we know worked for the Authority, sounded very religious even though it sounded weird ; the Magister was spouting rhetoric about using the blood only for procreation after all and it was mentioned that he had ties to the Inquisition.

I am sure that because of this, the Authority was the group of vampires responsible for the infiltration of the Catholic church and not just vampires in general. Nan was possibly involved as well (unless she’s not old enough to have been involved as the blu-ray dvd extras implied though they could have changed that implication).

The Authority is clearly interested in power and is opportunistic enough to go where ever they need to go.  Bill also professed that the vampires need to disguise themselves within human institutions such as the Catholic church.

But I will go a step further and suggest the Authority is now a religious institution because of their involvement with the Catholic church, perhaps they even believe in the teachings of the Catholic church but have interpreted it for vampires. The most zealous members of Catholicism could truly believe that sex is only for procreation (this could be interpreted as the equivalent of the magister saying that the blood is only to be used to procreation and not recreational purposes).

Ok, so let us also recall that Steve Newlin mentioned a vampire pope in Episode 2×06…

Remember, the Catholic church was the most powerful political and religious entity at the time ( a lethal combination considering that these two institutions contain the most power over people and their actions).  Of course, this would mean that the pope was the single most powerful person (or vampire as the case may be).

This is important for two reasons:

1. It makes the reality of my opinion that they want to ironically impose a strict (possibly even religious) dogma into actual human law eventually more real. A dogma I felt many vampires would oppose, possibly starting the vampire political wars.

AND

2. The President of the United States would be the highest office they could achieve within America and some say the world (to parallel the power they achieved by having a vampire pope) so they will have the goal of putting in a vampire president one day soon.

Puppet President Bill anyone?

Makes a Puppet President like Bill even more likely (although it seems like Bill wont be on the Authority’s good side soon).  We all know the Authority needs puppets. As Nan clearly illustrates time and time again, they do not take the heat for anything themselves. A scapegoat will always be necessary!

They are involved with politics to implement their power and their religious dogma without actually ever being at risk of losing that power because they will always have a scapegoat- BRILLIANT.

This small group will soon have  rigid power over everything including humans if their plan is achieved — even other Supes and Witches.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

I COULD BE  WRONG THOUGH OF COURSE. IF this is the case then we could say that the Authority has NO TRUE AGENDA OTHER THAN THEIR POWER/ DOMINATION and that they will prey on the ideals of anyone to use them as a means to that end. Bill wants to be around humans/ a purpose so they lure him into their trap and the Magister believed in vampires within the Catholic church so they prey on that ideal for his loyalty (if Eric is included then it’s because they preyed on his desire to openly do business with humans/ be himself). Also, it would explain why it appears that the ideals of the Authority/ AVL seem inconsistent; they utilize an austere Magister and the liberal humans all the same. It would also explain why they seem to have no regard for how many vampires die at their hands or what happens to anyone that refuses them in any way- even for the better.

Who cares how many vampires die at a witch’s hand if it means holding on to your power and not upsetting anyone by harming one of them?

    Good read K. I know you had that theory down, you were talking about it for days…I was sad when I saw the priests come out because I knew they were going to be vamps and spoil your theory…I think this theory about the Authority has merit as well. The devotion to it by some almost seems like an act of faith at times, and the Magister did seem to be talking about it like it was a religion.

      thank you for the compliment and of course you know first hand…

      me too ofc 😦 What would have been happiness was sadness lol

      If the Magister represents the Authority’s true colors then it has to be a religious group of some kind.

    Absolutely on the right track, I posted about “Vampire President” on the truebloodwiki last night after the episode. The AVL/Authority are interested in the vampire right amandment passage because its the first step in installing their vampire agenda on the human race. Really there is no difference between Russell Edgington’s agenda and the AVL agenda. They are both interested in dominating and taking over the human populace. They want to ultimate rule over humans for their own benefit.

    In one of the Inside the Episode post videos, a vampire was being interviewed about influencing Wall Street. That is a parallel to the political agenda that is now also being revealed. Both financial and political influences in the United States. The United States still is considered the political center of world politics, the vampires know that once they hold the Presidency it will be able to influence policies around the world.

    Keep up the posts!

      That’s awesome!
      They want what Russell wants its just that Russell is willing to speed things up by starting a race war and they are not…

      That inside-the-episode is key to our understanding.

      It’s the top position like the pope was then.

    The authority has always made it perfectly clear that they have no love for humans. They are considered animals…what was it he said before he made Bill turn Jessica? Something to the effect of: those tears and emotions are nothing more then a reaction. Basically they feel vampires are superior to humans, and probably every other supernatural being as well.

    They’ve already shown us vampires as Nazis, politicians and nuns and priests. It seems clear they have some sort of vampire ruled world order in mind. It doesn’t seem like it’s a recent idea either.

    (fangtasia)

    ps. That nutter in Norway who killed all those people was apparently a True Blood fan. How creepy is that?

      Exactly. the Magister shows the Authority’s true colors.
      Exactly again!

      I agree. i think maybe I should break down their entire agenda.

      pretty creepy….ummmm
      I didn’t know that actually…where was that?

        He wrote it in his so-called manifesto. Believe me when I say that was one of the least creepy things in it! You can download it in pdf form, do a google search if you’re interested.

        (This is more for your info, I’d rather not advertise his propaganda Kat…just delete this if you would) I’d send it to you privately but can’t find an email for you here.

    well, I’m not suprised that church was place where the bloodthirsty and power obsesed vampire went 😉 And it make perfectly sense that holly inquisition was in fact race war against witches, magic and other supernaturals, so I wasn’t suprised either. I’m not a big fun of Catholic Church as you can see, sorry if someone felt offenced.

    If I was a vampire now a days and would like to have power over people… well wall street is a good place, white house also (now we know the reason of Great Revelation – if I good remember one of things was to give a vampire citizens rights, just as vote… but if you can vote you can be also a canditate, don’t you?) and all financial places… maybe even crisis few years ago was a part of bigger plan – to put America on her knees 😉

    But after all, we all know that people in financial institution are bloodthirsty 😉

    And one more from me – “I had a bad dream”, how cute it was? And “You have light in you, I couldn’t stand if I would sniff that out”… “I would never harm someone so beautiful”, well I can’t blame Sookie that her heart just fall in love 😉 So “Eric, don’t go” was like reading in my mind 😉 But now Bill know and if Im right, he interrups them once again – but now they kissed, hahah, good for them.

    Nice scene when Sookie went to Marnie… funny as good spy could be a girl who looks and behave as a little blond twat 😉 And Marnie, gush, she lost it, she is on a stright road to mentaly illness, creazy house and speaking with his own foot. Gush, Jesus creeps me out, Laffy has no luck for boyfriends at all, Sookie’s grandma should talk to him as well: run from him!

      Well it’s definitely a place to acheive power…but so is religion in general. We see that through Steve Newlin and also Marnie’s Wiccan group. It’s just that the Catholic church is and was one of the most powerful if not THE most powerful. No, that’s fine. All opinions, short of advocating violence, are welcome and also given the chance to be refuted 😉

      One place they did not cover as much was the religious aspect because they know that money and government rule in America. However, religion can influence as much as it is then even if it didn’t wield the same amount of power it did then.

      Greed is a blood thirst for sure. Russell spelled it out on TV during that killing.

      They will be on the verge of sex it looks like before he shows up lol Trust me, I was gushing as well.

      She always talks too much though (as we saw when she spied on the Newlins) as a funny quirk ha ha.
      “little blond twat” HILARIOUS
      She is mentally ill and opened herself up without any precaution….the ultimate target for such a possession.
      I cannot believe that Lafayette went for that…as accepting as Jesus was about Lafayette…STILL
