Maybe so Bingo--but it's still preaching. Just plain old proselytizing, brainwashing, preaching. Say it over, and over, and over, enough and maybe, just maybe someone will be brain dead enough to fall for it. Advertising again, plain old advertising. Step right up and get your dose of dogma, folks!
..."in righteousness He judges and wages war." Now ain't that nice. Don't you just love the harmony that religion creates in the world.
