Not all religious believers engage in proselytizing. Many do, but not all. For many it is just a way of seeing, and making sense of the world.
Which major religion does not proselytize? Moreover, the major problem i outlined is not about proselytizing, but about embedding a sense of being different and better.

It may seem more innocent, but that isn't necessarily the case. There is at least as much proselytizing going on in the economic sphere as there is in the religious one (and the arguments are remarkeably similar when you boil them down).
Of course its more innocent. More importantly, economic proselytizing (whatever that means) is subject to change simply by its academic nature. Academia by definition is an environment which gets constantly challenged both internally and externally in order to progress. The only way to rein in religion is by external force. This is why Christianity is timid. Not because of religion itself, but because it was separated from the state and later subjugated.
