Cubarey Posted May 4, 2015 Share Posted May 4, 2015 I think part of the point of the Mel scene was that it didn't work and there was no way it would have. The sparrows in the book seemed to be the Iranian Revolutionary Guard in the books and the High Sparrow the Ayatollah with a bit of Charles Mason thrown in. The show is pretty accurate to that sort of behavior. They are nowhere near like ISIS. Well you can think the Faith Militant to be like the Spanish Inquisition. The High Sparrow in the Books and the Show is not crazy nor power mad. He is a religious fanatic who believes he is following the dictates of the Gods. Frankly the anti-gay pogrom pisses me off a bit as its ahistorical and not really in keeping with the way the Faithful or the High Sparrow are depicted in the books.
