No offense at all, jaycint, from my perspective. My purpose is to show the folly of a position that says one should keep religious views private. Of course, I would never encourage shoving one's views down another's throat about anything, whether it be musical tastes, sports, politics, or religion. However, if one can present one's case for their belief system, where's the harm, even if they try to convince one that their view is superior? Where is the threat? If you think Scientology is ridiculous, then what threat is Tom Cruise trying to shove it down your throat? Unless he has special powers that enables him to take over your mind, he is no threat whatsoever, nor is anyone else "evangelizing" their cause. So what's the harm in them expressing their opinion, even if it is persuasive in nature?
