Watching True Detective Season 1 for about the umpteenth time and there are still things I haven't reconciled.
One--and I know there will be others--concerns the anti-Christian crimes task force that takes interest in the Dora Lang case in '95. In episode 1, Reverend Tuttle visits CID and during his visit, Commander Speece talks about the task force being put togehter.
Cohle is furious, which is apparent from his demeanor after hearing the news. My question is, is he upset about the task force being associated with anti-Christian crimes, or that there's even a task force in the first place.
If it's the former, why? The crimes were satanic, or "anti-Christian" so it would make sense for an anti-Christian task force to be assigned. If it's the latter, well then I understand, because I know Cohle is suspicious of interference from higher powers (i.e. the state government).
