PRIEST

 May 2011 saw the release of the film Priest.

It’s essentially a reimagining of the classic vampire tale.

In this reimagining, though, the vampires are mostly mindless, eyeless, eating automatons.

In a post-apocalyptic future Earth exists a religious organization called The Church. It is apparently configured like the Catholic Church, with monsignors and bishops in positions of power. It rules the lives and minds of the population of Earth, who are mostly ensconced behind the walls of cities. The population lives in fear because for so many centuries, the surface had been ruled by the vampires, who decimated the population, and forced the humans to collect in highly-protective cities.

Until the arrival of the priests.

The Church combed through the population centers of Earth for specially-talented young people who could be trained and brought to bear against the vampire menace.

Until the vampires were no longer a threat.

And the Church had earned the eternal gratitude of the terrorized human population.

Then the priests were out of business. Most of them took menial jobs because their training and talents weren’t useful for much more than shoveling garbage and cleaning toilets and washing dishes.

As the film opens, we follow a priest into Cathedral City where something very creepy happens.

In the background noise of the city is heard chanting:

REPENT. ABSOLUTION.

FAITH. WORK. SECURITY.

GOD PROTECTS YOU.

THE CHURCH PROTECTS YOU.

THE CITY PROTECTS YOU.

ABSOLUTION IS THE ONLY WAY.

 

Then, the creepiest part of mantra starts:

REMEMBER, TO GO AGAINST THE CHURCH
IS TO GO AGAINST GOD.

Having lived in the era of Miscavige tyranny, it was especially chilling.

I couldn’t help but hear the echoing in the background:

REMEMBER, TO GO AGAINST MISCAVIGE
IS TO GO AGAINST GOD.

Brrrrrrrrr.

We earth residents seem to have a history of appointing leaders, gurus for “all the right reasons” at some point in time then neglecting to revisit that decision as circumstances change.

It’s enough to make some wanna take charge or leave the area.

There is a bit of data on this phenomena in Hubbard’s works as I recollect.

More substantial matter to digest, POT. I just might have to see the movie as well.
