Making Religion Competitive

I used to feel that any effort to pick up converts to a religious point of view is dirty. In my most recent article at Patheos I question that. I wonder if the Pagan movement, as disjointed as it is, has in it the means to become a major world religion.

And if so, is an emphasis on heroic virtue its ticket to the big league?

(For longtime readers I should point out I still think proselytizing is inappropriate, and that goes for Pagans too.)

Edit: I’ve closed comments on this post. One of our commenters descended into flamespeak, and the rest of the discussion was going too fast for me to monitor effectively. Many thanks to all those who weighed in with a respectful opinion, even (especially) a dissenting one.
