It's always funny how people assume our religious structure is as rigid and literalistic as theirs.

So, when I cooperate with somebody or treat them nicely, it's assumed I must be COMPROMISING MY BELIEFS! or that I'm being a "bad" Satanist who's breaking the sacred rules. They seem to assume the same about Chris Cranmer.

But, what do you expect? People already tend to have a very skewed and lopsided understanding of self-interest and self-disinterest anyway!
