I sometimes wonder if True God Church is really an evil organization opposite to the Solar Kingdom... Between Inquisition Raid Leader, Shadow Spirit, Bardia, and a few others, it certainly seems like they could be working for some questionable purpose.
Given some of the recent card texts, along with the story entries that have been given, the True God Church definitely has its own agenda. That being said, that isn't really a new idea. Ever since Final Fantasy X (at least I think), it's become particularly popular to turn the traditional fantasy cliche of a "pure" church system on its head. Overbearing or oppressive religion systems are often used to create villains. Honestly, when I first started playing this game and saw the True God Church subtype, I immediately thought of witch hunters and the Spanish Inquisition, just based off of the word "True," and that was before I saw any of the actual Inquisition cards.
