The Tactic of Propaganda
The tactic of propaganda occurs when a massive amount of disinformation is put out supporting a certain view without giving any alternative view or showing the problems with the favored view, repeating a false or unproven message through many outlets (for instance, museums, schools, seminars, news, movies, songs, Internet trolls, disproportionate representations in webpages, and even churches).
Propaganda is used for two purposes. One is to propagate a lie. The other is to commit bandwagon fallacies. Propaganda usually requires huge amounts of money, so lobbying of government to supply funding is usually required. Note that it is normal for religions to evangelize. Christians evangelize. Atheists evangelize. Hindus evangelize. However, the effort to have an overwhelming majority of all media, particularly using such tactics as governmental financial support, court actions, message control, or discrimination to keep the overwhelming majority of all media, is propaganda.
Examples of the Tactic of Propaganda
Evolution, old Earth, relativistic morality, concepts of a powerless god or many gods, dependence on rationalism as the basis of logic rather than revelation, Naturalism, Materialism, and the concept of supposed error in Scripture being propagated through museums, schools, seminars, news, movies, songs, Internet trolls, disproportionate representations in webpages, and even churches as in the PBS show, Evolution..
Atheism propagated through museums, schools, seminars, news media, movies, songs, Internet trolls, and disproportionate representations in webpages.
During the fall of the Catholic Church, after it had become absorbed into the government, the desire to propagate the message (the Gospel had been fairly well lost by that time, along with the spiritual power and authority and the gifts, ministries, offices, and orders of the church) along with message control to quench all competing messages.
