316. Proselytize:
1 - to try to convert (a person), esp. to one's religion 2 - to persuade to do or join something, esp. by offering an inducement.

Funny, Webster says nothing about 'standing there and breathing' as being a factor in proselytizing.

Re 'canon' the term is obviously not applicable to Islam, as it is particular to the xtian faith (which is why I put it in quotes) but the definition of canon is: the books of the bible officially accepted by a church or religious body...

The xtian bible is to be respected by Islam, as being one of the Abrahmic religions, but the bible is in NO WAY 'accepted by' the Islamic faith as being correct.

And if you don't understand the difference I can only conclude that you are either a moron, or are being deliberately obtuse. And as deliberate obtuseness is a moronic stance, I stand by what I said.
