So I think that at the top of power structure, it is a woman who is really in charge. I believe that she is the personification of Isis, who all woman as individuals, have the ability to open the channels to receive the Goddess and her entry. Her servants are the men that she has empowered to be the overt forms of authority that she wishes to take the blame for the woes of mankind. They are the perfect scapegoats to be hung, drawn and quartered when the frenzy and collective hysteria take a hold upon the mob.
For this reason alone she has cleverly placed herself above all the rest and the monks that swore themselves to a life of chastity knew this as well. That is why they joined the covenant because a church dominated by men was the only counter to her dominion. They recognized that the draw to obey Isis and her command was the greatest temptation to losing the Kingdom. They also respected the Goddesses vast and untold influence throughout the cosmos and could not risk going against her. A truce was made and their positions were kept secure by the woman who put them there.

Please comment on the above statement...... I really want to know what you think about this.

Sounds like the conspiracy theory of what MRAs actually think the world is like... women are really the ones in power and they manipulate men into doing their bidding (through sex, I guess), and men get blamed when things go bad.
