A community rejoices and prays for victory and their soldiers to shed blood.
Aren't you excited that our men are going off into war?
Of course! Who wouldn't?
Someone is passing through the door.
Stop this monstrosity this instant! As god's messenger you all need to stop this heresy!
You all shouldn't even be preaching for this bloodshed. It is against god's wishes!
What is he talking about?
I don't know he's spouting nonsense
Crane is ridiculing the people praying for the men going to war and wanting them to shed blood and achieve victory. They are ridiculing them because it wasn't very right or moral of them to be celebrating them fighting. What needs to change is the people's mentality, what they're thinking is wrong is a lot of ways.
