The dunyain that received the dream could feel as if they had sorcery themselves. Moenghus contacting them through their own dreams, asking for his son to be sent, probably equals the possession of sorcery to them. Which they do not want; they strive for purity. It would therefor be in the interest of the 'breeding-program' and the dunyain themself, to remove themselves from the group.
This radical 'cure' is only vial because this could mean inpurity for the dunyain. They are faced with what is in their eyes, an incredible taint. Hence they remove it.
But facing magic when under attack from an opponent or when approached by the other various factions in the Three Seas that posses magic would not demand the same response. The magic is not present in them, but in the other. I think they will react and adopt to the situation similarly though not exactly like, Kellhus.
In short: they need not kill themselves to remove this taint.

They need to kill others. Alot of them, but if they will, who can tell. view post

I'm sorry, I don't have the books to refer to. I lent them out for my nephew to enjoy. I was under the impression that the Dunyain entered the temple to kill themselves when Kellhus left on his mission. Not knowing the content of the dream Moenghus sent, I assumed it in some way tainted their life. Maybe I metaphorically mis-read. It would seem odd for a society to off themselves over a dream when after the first apocolypse and the battle with the No-God they sought refuge in the secret castle of the Emperor Anasurimbor. Wouldn't that reality have tainted their life enough to have given up at that point instead of knocking on the gates of Ishual? view post
