heresy must be eliminated

 Sam Bowers: There are two really powerful figures in the world: the priest and the lawyer. I think I came here as a priest, not a preacher. A priest is interested in--inclined toward--visible, public power operations; this is what makes him powerful like a warrior. A preacher is an evangelist; he will tell people what to do; but he will not arrange the means and operations to implement this into concrete action. A preacher is an evangelist; he will tell people what to do.

 

[Charles Marsh: He turns to me and reaches across the table and stares at me directly in the eyes.]

 

SB: Priests and warriors will have something to do with America; with attack upon the power structures, as instruments of divine grace and judgment. The priest is more concerned with heresy than with sin; sins can be forgiven; heresy must be eliminated.
