If you man the cock and the angel, that's the angel's opinion. However, 
the angel turns out to be wrong about the fundamental moral of the 
story, and IIRC the angel makes his statement about the Increate's 
separation while he is without his angel-nature; having removed that, he 
has placed himself that much further from the Increate.

It's ambiguous, I'm jus sayin'
