That makes no sense. No one equates those things with what you said. There is absolutely nothing scary about a baptist preacher or middle-eastern imagery. There's nothing creepy about either. Quite the opposite. I loved the baptist preacher vibe and the middle-eastern imagery, if that's what you want to call it. It made him all very badass and engaging.
