Where'd you ever get such a distorted and narrow idea about Lisp? Lisp
is primarily procedural, with almost everything a "first-class
citizen". Various versions have support for lots of different
paradigms, including functional programming, "object-oriented"
programming (classes and instances), ... It's wrong to pick just one
aspect of Lisp and say it's mainly that.

You got that mostly right, everything except the last three words.
