There could also be a literal side to the anti-nun statement. Assuming that there are churches in Storybrooke, it would be plausible that they would be in conflict with practitioners of magic, especially a Dark One.March 7, 2012 at 2:13 pm #138319obisgirlParticipant
Another thought is that Rumpel hates fairies, but he also has a thing against nuns in general. According to the Evil Queen, clerics tried to cleanse Belle’s soul and helped lead to her “suicide”. So maybe on top of his bitterness or competition with fairies he hates anything associated with the “death” of Belle. It may be just my shipper heart talking but I thought is was worth mentioning.
Ha! I like that!! That may be part of it!
I was thinking about this last night, and I think this theory is somewhat flawed. I say that because the EQ said clerics and nuns helped to cleanse Belle’s soul; not fairies. I guess what I’m saying is, nuns or religious folk in fairytale land, that’s their role. That’s who they are.
So, I don’t think Mr. Gold’s/Rumple’s hatred of the nuns aka fairies, relates to Belle. There’s something else going on.March 9, 2012 at 12:40 pm #138466SnickerdoodleParticipant

Just re watched Price of Gold, there were a few things that tie in here.
1) Rumpel told Cinderella that the magic wand was pure evil, and that all magic comes with a price. So are fairies playing around with good and evil in their use of magic, trying to use evil for good?
It could be like Palpatine’s speech to Anakin in Revenge of the Sith at the opera. Where Palpatine twists how the Jedi are viewed as more evil, than good. But it’s all a matter of perspective. Maybe the fairies think that they are doing good, but from our point of view, enslaving the dwarfs to work for them, is evil.March 9, 2012 at 7:51 pm #138493hjbauParticipant
I definitely think that from Rumpel’s point of view the fairies are evil. Something must have happened with Bae i think. I always think that Skin Deep seems so out of character for Rumpel. If something happened to Bae when he was younger, centuries ago, and it involved the fairies, why was Rumpel just hanging around at the castle? Why did he decide to go after the fairy godmother all these years later? It just seems so bizarre. And we know that the blue fairy has been around for many many years.May 6, 2012 at 3:30 am #145613arjay369Participant
I’m glad we know more now about Rumpel’s dislike for fairies. They, or more precisely the Blue Fairy, were the cause of Bae’s disappearance. Since then, everything Rumpel has done was to create the curse that he hopes will reunite his son. Every deal he’s made was meant to benefit him for that purpose. There are ingredients he needed, other people had them, if someone wanted his help, the ingredient was the price. Rumpel didn’t target Ella’s fairy godmother for spite. The king came to Rumpel for another favor. The cost was the fairy’s magic wand. Though, I’m sure Rumpel felt no regret for killing the fairy, he probably could have found another way to get what he was after. Unless, what he wanted all along was to make a deal with Ella and have her price be her firstborn child. Again, every price for Rumpel’s help is a step toward’s creating the curse. I don’t know what a child would do for that unless Rumpel was still trying to figure out how to bottle true love and a child is usually a symbol of that.
