That's what I thought. What's the official Immaculate line explaining it away on Anathema? Aping the true form of Exalted or just "screw you and your questions, its demon light now make sure to report one if you see it"
Immaculates and lay Dragon-Blooded who are well-versed in the true nature of the Anathema are aware it's because the Solar and Lunar Anathema are themselves Exalted. The peasantry (and the Dragon-Blooded not interested in theology) don't really need to know much more than "it's because they stole the power of the sun and moon."
