In Response To: It's not that I dare mention these arguments.. (Betsy A. (0-) seamstress extraordinnaire)

I wanted to share this meditation by Thomas Moore

"I've never had the impression that Jesus or the Buddha were proselytizers. It simply wasn't their style to run membership campaigns or even to "network". They seem to have been less ambitious than that.
Believers and followers and converts - words we use of those who have become convinced of some spiritual value - run the risk of trying to make everyone else as perfect as they are. You must read this book, listen to this speaker, go to this place, become a whatever. What is it when the spirit gets such a hold on a person that they have to convert everyone else to their enthusiasm?
Soul puts reins on this tendency to clone one's own tongues of fire. Soul respects another's failure to find perfection, resistance to enlightenment, sheer ignorance of absolute truth, misguided attachments and unrelenting meandering."

To borrow your phrase, Betsy,
sharing, with the best of intentions, to everyone
