Protecting Sites and... Souls?!?

At my last tournament, I heard from the tournament director that Sites protected from Heroes or opponents subsequently protects the Souls in them from rescue by those Heroes respectively.

The case in question was in regard to

The Guardian Cherub- "Protect your Genesis Sites from opponents."

I am almost certain that this must be a miscall, doubly so in light of such common cards as

Caesarea Philippi- "Protect your NT Sites from opponents."

Sites that hold souls can limit which heroes have access to them to only those which have a matching brigade. There is no protection in term of the Redemption ability or anything. If you look up sites in the REG and rulebook it should give you a more thoruogh description of everything.

I mean, yes, I know how Sites work. Thank you, The Schaefer.

The tournament director was saying that Sites targeted by a protect ability such as these keep any Souls in them from being rescued by Heroes, which I'm convinced cannot be true.

The protect ability on Caesarea Philippi and similar cards protects sites from things like Joshua (CoW) or Destruction of Babylon. It has nothing to do with the lost souls.

Protecting a site does not protect its contents.
The longer everything goes to plan, the bigger the impending disaster.

Just as I thought.

Good. Because if something like Caesarea Philippi allowed you to throw a line of NT Sites with protection from opponents into your deck that kept the Souls in them from being rescued, I would've been... a little miffed, to put it nicely.

Fun playtester's note:  There was a time when Guardian Cherub protected Genesis sites and their contents from human heroes.  It didn't take much playtesting to prove that this was an issue  ;)
