I don't think blasphemous is an incorrect term, since Ciel was the host of a DAA, and is functionally immortal.
I heard it said somewhere that the Burial Agency is not particularly popular in the Church; it's usually regarded as a necessary evil. If vampires ever disappeared I don't doubt the Church would turn on the Agency in a heartbeat. The Nasu-verse never seems particularly short of 40k-esque zeal.
That's about right, from what I've read. Somewhere in EvoSpace's site (Moonlit World), there is a portion that speaks about them and does mention that. I do wonder about the Church's knight's zeal though, I'm betting they are willing to do some dirty work themselves to ensure the church's goals are met, but probably not to the point of using "blasphemous" tactics or killing the pope if he ends up possessed (at least not without considering another way to recover his humanity).mewarmo990 wrote:The Burial Agency seems to be disliked by the mainstream factions of the church because of their fanaticism, and because they are willing to stoop to using even demonic weapons and powers in order to carry out their goals

if you think of a magi as someone ambitious, it makes sense for them to follow the life that leads them to the greatest rewards.
science can be grapsed more easily, and by more people, but it's peak is below that of magic.

Kiritsugu has magic bullets. No, really. Aren't they special 'mage-killer' bullets that pierce magic, or something? I don't read F/Z, so I'm not positive.
