They make it our personal responsibility to make these people believe in the same things we do to "benefit" both parties. That is pretty ridiculous when you think about it.
But isn't saying that no one should do so (try to persuade others to believe something, or to see something in a different light), doing the very same thing? In saying that something is ridiculous, aren't you implicitly saying that another (your own) point of view is not so ridiculous, more urbane, just, wise, etc ... ?
The only difference between such a point of view, and a genuinely religious (or even unabashedly political) point of view, is that the former is inconsistent with its own moral imperative, and unaware of its own universal aims.
That being said, I still think the deepest disagreements can be without malice, rancor, and even harbor seeds of friendship. And though I would say that this is all by the grace of God, maybe disagreeing parties can at least agree that it is sometimes so.
