I have to say though, we've been shipping 2D canvas with the context-loss

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your Father in heaven. ... If you love those

doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more
than others?" [Matthew 5:43-47]
