When Did “Conversion” Become a Dirty Word?

When Did “Conversion” Become a Dirty Word?

Bishop Robert Barron 

Bishop Barron gave five presentations centered on evangelization to crowds of up to thirteen thousand during the recent World Youth Day. However, in the pages of Commonweal, Austen Ivereigh asserts that Bishop Barron failed to grasp the key distinction between evangelization and proselytism. Ivereigh even goes so far as to say that any effort at conversion to the Church “contradicts” authentic evangelization.
