Religious proselytizing is not an incentive to violence. It itself is violence. From your own point of view, we might as well give up on trying to make a better world.

I wouldn't be surprised if most "believers" didn't make it to their religion's "Heaven"...
...the goal is to infiltrate it with their compromising philosophies and attempt to destroy the Church from within."
"What if there were people within the various Churches of God who covertly were guiding the members to slowly accept new ideas which are alien to the true faith and who were dedicated to destroying that faith at all costs?" JESUIT-JEDI MINDTRICKS
...most of our institutions are infiltrated and run by racists, satanists, perverts and criminals, often masquerading as devout and God-fearing Christians.
Did the Illuminati Exterminate Canadian Indian Children?
In the late forties the Illuminati wanted to infiltrate the churches because they understood the power of God within the structure of the church, and they had to find a way to infiltrate the church to break down that spiritual strength within the church, the power of the holy spirit that works within the church. They had to find a way to infiltrate that, and they wanted to bring the world into the churches so that the churches wouldn't be so strong spiritually. That was part of my father's job.

I don't have the right to get offended? Why do you feel the need to demean me in order to contest what I have to say? Did I try to demean you?
Who said I advocated free speech? I don't. You think you have a 'right to your opinion'? Well, I have a right to not listen to your opinion if I find it offensive.
In my mind you have a 'right to keep your opinion to yourself' and you certainly don't have the right to teach your child that it will go to Hell if it doesn't kiss the feet of your imaginary messiah. That for me is child abuse.
I would like to live in a world where there was no violence of any kind (and to me religious proselytizing is violence). In my ideal world, parents should pass on their wisdom to their children, while being careful not to cross the line between advice and indoctrination.
And, while I am offended, that is not the main reason for my stance. I want to live in a society where there is no violence, and where coercive behaviors are not tolerated. I am offended, because in my view our society is sitting idle, while demagogues and tyrants are abusing their 'rights' of 'religious expression' in order to profit, causing pain and suffering to sentient beings in the process.
The current crisis in the ME is proof enough. Their violence started on the level of the individual. It was through aggressive proselytizing that this virus spread and eventually destroyed the lives of millions.
