Amnesia doesn't affect all of his memories, he wouldn't be completely at a lost of what to do.

Kamijou himself is not the type to hesitate or ponder about his problems, that is to say if nothing can be done about it then he's not going to worry too much about it.

Though another thing to remember is that there's a reason why it's call the church of Necessary Evil.

That's pretty much their way of justifying magic- Other churches would have their own special divisions.

Some people want to rule the world from the shadows.

Revealing magic to the world would draw too much attention to your actions.

It's not hard to imagine because it's happening in the real world right now.

With the advancement of science, people are less incline to believe the word of Religion.

The Pope isn't all-knowing, as far as he's been told, he signed a kill order against the enemy of his faction and the one in the center of all the chaos.
