comment How do you teach a child religious views?
@MarcGravell et al.: I practice a form of family tradition paganism, meaning a non-Abrahamic religion passed down within a tribe. Most of my family converted, so I'm one of the last practitioners of this particular famtrad AFAIK. My best guess (from the limited, mostly oral history I have access to) is that the prohibition against proselytizing developed as an adaptation to living among hostile cultures. My ancestors were gypsies (NOT Roma, different tribe) and traveled for centuries among cultures with conflicting religions, most of whom didn't like outsiders much.
