Is this really the best they can do?

I suppose the military hegemony of the US government makes the Roman Empire a natural ideal for it, but this propaganda cartoon's blatant promotion of an "obediance-at-all costs," attitude still makes it ridiculous and ineffective. Particularly bizarre is the fact that this Census Bureau ad is ostensibly intended to appeal to Christians, even though the Roman state murdered Jesus Christ. (Which makes the "Don't be afraid," tagline all the more ironic.)
