The only possible reason I could think of for the MoC to do this would
be if e is also the Oracle and wants to Answer all Consultations
eirself (as eligibility to be selected as Priest is, if I'm not
mistaken, the only thing that being Active does). Since the Answers
could still be found to be Inconsistent this wouldn't really give the
MoC any real power; it would just annoy people, who would usurp the
Ministry of Change pretty quickly.
