Now, is it completely impossible for someone to practice sorcerous magic and theistic magic at the same time?

I'm thinking of someone like Maculus the Monitor, who was a sorceror and an Irrippi Ontor initiate at the same time. Also, GoG notes that certain cults (like Etyries) were open to sorcerors. I've got a lunar Etyzaal alchemist PC (gotta love that "vivisection" skill, him and Danfive Xaronites get along happily), who was also an Irrippi Ontor initiate (at a low affinity level [13]), but came in handy).

If I'm violating a major HW precept, I'd like to know (though my PC wouldn't mind at all, probably a result of one of his lobotomy-brain splicing experiments). Or would he use feats in the affinities in a spell-like way?
