Interfaith or proselytisation?

For many Christians their faith requires them to attempt to convert others to their religion. As a Pagan I am constantly surprised at the number of people who are, apparently, certain of their Paganism, yet are willing to engage with Christians attempting to do just this. They organise “Inter faith” church services (note the word church!) and invite the Pagans along with tales of “celebrating their similarities” These similarities are not a surprise to anyone with even the merest knowledge of Christian history. Christianity preaches love and peace and yet has the bloodiest history of forced conversions, child-snatching and abuse. What they could not force they¬†undermined, taking countless ancient religions and changing their tales to have a Christian slant………………..Are these Pagans who willingly take part in this modern attempt at conversion, unaware of history?
