Damned right. I've heard they drive around in school buses on Sunday mornings, picking up children and taking them to indoctrination lessons run by adults who ejaculate ideas into their virgin brains.
I had the crap scared out of me like that when I was a kid. During one summer of staying with my grandparents, my grandmother signed my brother and I up for "Vacation Bible School" at the Southern Baptist Church nearby. They were not really familiar with the denomination, being Yankees recently moved to Florida, and like a lot of people felt most all Protestant churches are alike. A major family crisis ensued when my brother and I came home announcing we were all going to hell for not being "saved".
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
