>>Evangelization = Proselytism<<
I gotta go with this definition.

In the world of Catholicism, where words don't really mean anything, evangelism does not equal proselytism just like venerate doesn't mean worship. Just like dogma isn't dogma except when they say it is. Words are different except when the Catholics would like them to be the same. Then they're the same only based upon our Catholic friends interpretation. Evangelizing to someone who has absolutely no opinion and is open to all views (if there is such a thing) is good. Sharing your faith with someone of another religion in hopes of seeing them come to Christ is very, very bad.
It is a wonderment how actively sharing the faith and wanting to see others come to Christ, to save them from hell, could be construed as evil or malicious. I suppose those who have those COEXIST bumper stickers are either atheists or Catholics.
Don't try to figure it out. Your head will explode. In the end they are only fooling themselves.
