That is, if the Avatar leaves. If the Avatar itself never goes away, then the only frank conclusion is that these institutions are set up according to the perserverance of the Avatars wishes itself, and not left to the mindless judgements of mere mortals.

I agree. But enlightened people will see right through them. Forgiving people will forgive them. Hateful people will hate them.

Sounds like a cult, not a church. There is a difference.
