Damien Thorn[edit]

  • Nazarene, charlatan, what can you offer humanity? Since the hour you vomited forth from the gaping wound of a woman, you have done nothing but drown man's soaring desires in a deluge of sanctimonious morality. You've inflamed the pubertal mind of youth with your repellent dogma of original sin. And now you absolve in denying them the ultimate joy beyond death by destroying me? But you will fail, Nazarene, as you have always failed. We were both created in man's image, but while you were born of an impotent god, I was conceived of a jackal. Born of Satan, the desolate one. Your pain on the cross was but a splinter compared to the agony of my father. Cast out of heaven, the fallen angel, banished, reviled. I will drive deeper the thorns into your rancid carcass, you profaner of vices. Cursed Nazarene. Satan, I will avenge thy torment, by destroying the Christ forever.
  • Disciples of the Watch- I stand before you; in the name of the one who was cast out from heaven, but is alive in me. Do you hear me? [Crowd answers: "We hear and obey."] I command you now to seek out and destroy the Nazarene child. Slay the Nazarene and I reign forever. Fail, and I perish. Slay the Nazarene and you, my disciples, shall truly inherit this earth! Fail and you will be condemned to a numbing eternity in the flaccid bosom of Christ. Do you hear me? Disciples of the Watch: there must be no delay. Slay the Nazarene and victory shall be ours, now and forevermore. Do you hear me?
  • Most people confuse evil with their own trivial lusts and perversions. Now, true evil is as pure as innocence.
  • [Last words] Nazarene, you have won... nothing.


Kate Reynolds: And who is this... Antichrist?
DeCarlo: The American Ambassador, Damien Thorn.
Kate Reynolds: [laughs] That's ridiculous. I know Damien Thorn.
DeCarlo: You know Thorn the man... but do you know his soul?

Harvey Dean: Damien. I thought you were up at the house. You know, the press are going crazy for a statement on Schroeder. I guess I can hold 'em off until you talk to Buher, but-
Damien Thorn: What was DeCarlo doing at your house yesterday?
Harvey Dean: Who?
Damien Thorn: Come on, Harvey, just give me the truth.
Harvey Dean: I'm telling the truth. I've never heard of DeCarlo before in my life!
Damien Thorn: Peter. [Peter gets up from an armchair and stands behind Damien] Go ahead, Peter.
Peter Reynolds: At half past three yesterday afternoon, I saw the priest called DeCarlo go to 144 Abbey Crescent, where he spent an hour and 22 minutes talking to the wife of Mr. Dean.
Harvey Dean: Damien... look, I-I didn't know he was a priest. I didn't know Barbara was-
Damien Thorn: Kill your son.
Harvey Dean: What?
Damien Thorn': There's only one boy left, and that's your son. Destroy him or be destroyed.
Harvey Dean: Damien, for the love of GOD!
Damien Thorn: And God said unto Abraham, take now thy son, thine only Isaac, whom thou lovest, and offer him for a burned offering. Now if Abraham was willing to slay his own son for the love of his God, why won't you do the same for mine?
Harvey Dean: You're all crazy!
[Dean stumbles out and flees the American embassy.]
Peter Reynolds: Aren't you gonna stop him?
Damien Thorn: There's no need.
