Toure Bomoko was the Chairman of the C.E.T.

After the publication of the OCB in 25 BG, he appeared to admit that C.E.T. had erred in trying to manipulate the props of popular religion:

"We shouldn't have tried to create new symbols; we should' ve realized we weren't supposed to introduce uncertainties into accepted belief, that we weren't supposed to stir up curiosity about God. We are daily confronted by the terrifying instability of all things human, yet we permit our religions to grow more rigid and controlled, more conforming and oppressive. What is this shadow across the highway of Divine Command? It is a warning that institutions endure, that symbols endure when their meaning is lost, that mere is no summa of all attainable knowledge."

Bomoko's critics forced him soon afterward to flee with 35 other delegates to Salusa Secundus, where he was granted sanctuary by Padishah Emperor Jules Corrino, to the dismay of the mobs. However, when he raped the virgin Empress Orenna in 22 BG, the delegates were hunted down and killed.

Toure managed to escape, somehow, however, to Josef Venport, Directeur of Venport Holdings. Josef allowed him to hide on Tupile with a pledge of secrecy. He reportedly died there, honored and beloved, his last words:

"Religion must remain an outlet for people who say to themselves, 'I am not the kind of person I want to be.' It must never sink into an assemblage of the self-satisfied."
