Stranded on this earth, the Bliss were denied of their Rapture. As the fighting raged on, some members of the Bliss decided to react and help the struggle against the invaders. With the strange disappearance of Raymond Genr, the Bliss were left leaderless. Some local groups began to abuse their ways and change it, turning to the consumption of the pill more than maintaining a state of complacency and pacifism.
A tear formed in the faith, and the Bliss split. The members dedicated to Raymond stopped taking the pill to Bliss altogether and tried to elevate themselves through charity work and kindness. On the other hand, the splinter group which had grown much bigger than the Raymond loyal members has become more dependent on the pills. As years went by, the supply continued to be replenished by the Reverends from an unknown source.
Suddenly, Reverends began to ask for donations. They were very small at the time, to help clean the places of worship and aid the poor. But they grew bigger as time went by. More and more new Reverends, those that did not rise up in the first Rapture to Bliss began to take the place of the originals.
Bliss began to cost money. They were Nickels at first, to help keep the supply of the pills in check. Bliss began to be sold as a street drug throughout the nations, usually being cut and mixed with other materials to slice costs and maximize profits. People ingesting the pieces of Bliss that were tainted suffered greatly and even died.
A cry for help was made by the Bliss, asking people interested in tasting a piece of Bliss to simply join the group and dedicate themselves to pacifism.
The group suited the Alien's plans. The more pacified humans were around, the easier it was to control them. The drug spread and caused rampant crime and addiction rates. Those addicted to the drug remained in a state of calm where they could not move or react, effectively endangering their lives and preventing them from leaving a normal lifestyle.
In some countries, one out of eight was an addict. They would remain in a safe house till the pills would wear off and then do anything they could to find enough money for another trip to Bliss.
The Bliss embraced the notion of being a "church". Such a thing received legitimacy from the invading Aliens almost unanimously. Strange new laws began to appear. Not attending church on Tuesdays was met with a fine. Performing old religious rites incurred a hefty fine. Placing religious symbols in the outdoors became illegal.
As the church of Bliss grew, it began to form a hierarchy. A central leadership was formed under one Preacher which was elected from a pool of grand Reverends. These were responsible for an area with smaller communities and their own Reverends. The distribution of the pieces of Bliss came down from the Preacher to the believer by a simple exchange of currency.
With the money gathered from their followers, the church of the Bliss began to build grand structures where the wreckages of once great cities lied.
The Church of The Bliss had drifted far away from the first doctrine of Raymond yet people believe its words when they claim to speak the work of the true preacher, Raymond Genr.
