I think that this isn't what it seems. We're viewing it as high sparrow broke Marge, and she convinced Tommen in earnest. I really think Marge figured out a way to get out of her walk of shame by faking atonement and giving the high sparrow something that he wanted. She's also managed to get him to betray the Lannisters by sending Jaime away. It might backfire, but I bet this is more about Tyrell vs. Lannister than the faith vs. the corrupt ruling class.
The Tommen situation has always been about Marge vs. Cersei since whoever controls him is essentially the one in power, and by getting out of the walk of shame by manipulating Tommen, it looks like Marge has won.
