This is one dimension of the problem.

Unfortunately we "people of the text" had our own priests in the temple, 
and they were only too happy to cooperate with the priests of the 
programming world.

The fallout from that horrible merger is part of why there has already 
been a Reformation, with many people turning their back on the temple to 
create the ministry of all believers...

(though some have instead formed their own cults, of course.)
