    What causes some traditional, dogmatic religious people to want to proselytyze and try to convert

    other people to their methodology of thinking and believing?

    They lack a total acceptance of their own belief unless others believe it as well? 
    They want crowd support.  It helps them feel legitimate in their beliefs.

    Many claim that it is a required part of their religion.
    They have a hard time accepting that the rest of us don't want to hear it or care what they have to say.
    Just as many think that if they say something long enough, often enough and loud enough it will somehow become true, and everyone will accept it as such.
    It is almost guaranteed that if someone wants to tell you their good news they don't want to hear your good news.

    Maybe the question should be "Why do people try to keep the good works within the Bible from being provided to the youth and others so they may learn about the good love in the path of righteousness?"
    Those that remove the Ten Commandments from school corridors deny students the right of choice.
    Those that remove the choice of prayer within athletic events deny youth the right of choice.
    Those that deny the right of choice - restrict the environment where choice is to be made.
    The USA Constitution was written to reject all denial by government.  However, some believe this means that it requires the elimination of formative interactions that supply information to the individual.
    The USA government currently is highly challenged by the demands of some that restrict the rights of the individual.
    It is the taxpayer who provides the funding power that makes it possible to have education at schools.  Therefore, it should be the taxpayer that determines the operations of the school to provide that education. 
    However, many current politicians and judges believe it is the government that provides the education power.  This incorrect strategy of educational support by government has led to further decay of the USA society.  Corruption breeds further corruption.
    Those who feel that an information vacuum will provide a moral value path to the youth lack perceptive vigilance to moral advancement of the society.  Thus evil begets evil as the vacuum permits immoral wickedness to rise above moral righteousness.
    Everyone has rights, but some consider those rights from a vacuum viewpoint by claiming that a void position is better than a represented one.  Through this inept position, they demand the removal of crosses from plaques celebrating War Heroes, portrayals of Christ presenting the Ten Commandments, prayer before sporting events, and angel statues dedicated to introduction of the Heavens child.
    Those who wish to restrict the rights of others can easily omit such actions from their environment.  However, when they demand that it be omitted from others, they have discriminated against the other individual.
    Under the Christian message, individuals convert themselves, they are not forced to convert.  This improper portrayal of the Christian religion and its followers is another ploy utilized by those who wish to support the immoral factions carving evil into the moral society.

      Those who try to include their beliefs in places they shouldn't be re trying to remove choice.
      Religion belongs in the home and church not in public secular education, where it is pushed on children with no choice but to waste their time listening.
