"Rather than persuading"
I agree with Oscar that we are not in this world for the purpose of airing our moral predjudices. In other words, persuading is against my religious principles.

One speaker called the canonization mass that Pope Francis will conduct “a disastrous celebration of slavery and cultural termination.” [Read: Why Serra Should Not Be a Saint, by scholar Jacqueline Hidalgo.]

No Bert, it's the right wing version of brotherly love, as endorsed by the Christian idea of human togetherness.
