I mean the eternal question with these sorts of things is - how do they know that? How do they know they're being punished, and how do they know it's because of Malacora?

They do not know how diseases work, and they believe in an omnipotent god that controls all aspects of the world around them. If something bad happens, it must be because God is testing them or punishing them for sinning. Saint Victor (they follow the teachings of several saints, but he was the most important) hunted demons and supposedly this made bad things go away. He was the voice of God, and he said allowing evil creatures to roam free was just as bad as being one. It might seem ridiculous, but these people have nothing else to go on and they are scared.

I love the contrast between the good and bad aspects of religion here. Kinda makes you think.

Yeah, it's definitely not a purely black-and-white issue, and I don't think either of these guys are necessarily wrong for feeling the way they do about it.
