I think alot of things are becoming exposed mainly due to the existence of the internet. Youtube and phone cameras can catch a lot of things now. In the past the large majority of the population was at the mercy of dominate sources of news and makes it easy to be manipulated by propaganda.
The exposure is hurting them, and its up to an individual to reason this is divine. Considering it is happening very rapidly I would say so (as I believe in a Master of all things in function).
However it seems that while they are very stupid spiritually not unlike other demonations and factions they are definitely businessman and are skilled at putting a spiritual twist on business moves to manipulate the more gullible. They quickly started using their finainces and doctrines to slow down the effects of their exposure and it destroying them.
I would say its mostly about the money to the heads, but it seems odd that they simply don’t just take the money they have and run to leave their org in shambles. Not sure how its worth it to keep going like they are, having to twist doctrines to cover for business moves to maintain their survival must be taxing to a degree. The situation may only get worse for them and they’ll get into a corner they can’t escape from. They may be stubborn too.
