The Resurrection Crusade was an American militant Christian fanatic group whose aims included showing people their sinful ways, and destroying the unrepentant as a means of retribution. Their Pyramid of Prayer videos were extremely popular, and their presence spread to the United Kingdom.
The Resurrection Crusade's main goal was to create a new messiah. To achieve this end, their leader, Elder Martin, have his rebellious daughter Mary, whom they believed her to be the lost lamb Mary, immaculately conceive a god child by mating with an angel. The Crusade were opposed by occultist John Constantine, but were able to break Zed's will and make her surgically suitable for her role. However, Zed recently had intercourse with Constantine, whose blood was tainted with demon essence, and thereby making her corrupt and impure. As a result, Heaven became offended with the abysmal failure of the Crusade, and utterly killed the cultists, including Zed.
Tongues of Fire
The Tongues of Fire were the strong arm branch of the Resurrection Crusade. They were also chiefly responsible for carrying out secret duties that was not made public to the Crusaders' normal congregation. The Tongues of Fire are responsible for the murder of Ray Monde and the abduction of Elder Martin's daughter Zed. They performed surgical and behavioral experiments on her in order to prepare her for the role of being the divine mother of a being they believed would be the Second Coming.
