I didn't watch Babylon 5 when it originally aired but many years later, but it seemed the show largely avoided doing this (comparing to what I remember of the 90s), as it was more committed to an arc, and more universal (and timeless) themes. I'm wondering if maybe this was an exception, because it kind of smells like one
Well people have been using religious reasons to justify their actions for centuries, so it is really a timeless theme...
