Yes, and especially when the One God is ordering that everyone who disagrees or who commits the slightest "sin" should be instantly killed.
“Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him:
But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.
And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God” (Deut. 13:8-10)
Well, that´s the way of tyranny and terror as practised by Stalin, Hitler, Mao, and their likes.
