“I contemplate the moment in the garden, the idea of allowing your own crucifixion.”
"Been that way since one monkey looked at the sun and told the other monkey 'He said for you to give me you f...ing share'
"The ontological fallacy of expecting a light at the end of the tunnel... well, that's what the preacher sells. Same as a shrink. See, the preacher, he encourages your capacity for illusion, then he tells you it's a f...ing virtue."
"Well, there's a buck to be had doin' that. I mean it's such a... a desperate sense of entitlement, isn't it? Surely, this is all for me. Me? Me. Me... I, I... I'm so f...ing important. I'm so f...ing important, right?! F... YOU!"
RC: What do you think the average IQ of this group is, huh?
MH: Can you see Texas up there on your high horse? What do you know about these people?
RC: Just observation and deduction. I see a propensity for obesity. Poverty. A yen for fairy tales. Folks puttin' what few bucks they do have into a little wicker basket being passed around. I think it's safe to say nobody here's gonna be splitting the atom, Marty.
MH: You see that. Your f***ing attitude. Not everybody wants to sit alone in an empty room beating off to murder manuals. Some folks enjoy community. A common good.
RC: Yeah, well if the common good's gotta make up fairy tales then it's not good for anybody.
With already heavy Christian tropes throughout the 1st season we have a man, who comes from nowhere and nobody knows about him. He starts speaking in terms that make no sense and start incurring the wrath of the authorative groups of the area, seen in this case as the bastardisation of the christian morals that the Tuttles are the figure head of. Rust operates entirely outside of their constraints in order to expose what the truth really is. He goes off for a period of time where nobody can account for his wearabouts, much like christ between his adolesence and when he finally turns back up, then things start to get interesting. He knows his purpose is to fulfill a destiny, of which he is not entirely sure what that may be yet. however, he does know one thing he was put on this earth to strike down the darkness that has risen in his absence.
