I imagine much of the nation will ignore the "message", if that's what it is, because "fear" is an extremely lousy motivator. Through fear, you only accomplish a temporary, superficial change in behavior. A true change of heart requires carrots, not sticks.

I was away from the Church for a long time, and I am grateful that when I needed to come back, God didn't send me a stick -- he sent me a great, big, fat juicy carrot.
