To say people who are religious will be conned by things such as propoganda is like saying Doom is responsible for creating killers. Whatever excuse is used, whether it be a video game being used as inspiration for the Colombine massecre or whatever excuse you might use, those people have problems far beyond any impact such things might have.

That doesn't sound like "religion makes people more susceptible to things such as propaganda" to me.
