preaching to the choir?

What does this mean? Is it preaching to a group that isn't going to listen or preaching to a group that already agrees?

  • preaching something they already know about. Comes from the choir always being at church, they've heard the sermons a billion times.

  • choir in this case are people that are regulars at church and presumed to know the information already.. so a preacher, preaching to them, is sort of just repeating what they already know.

    The case being the colloquialism that is apparently too difficult for you to comprehend. Unlike "choir" in the case of an elementary school singing group, who obviously would not be more knowledgeable on a given subject.

  • and the hate group comes in with another insult....

    the need to judge one's intelligence


    must be a trademark or characteristic of Heathens...

    If you don't want to be treated like a troll, don't act like one.
