I believe those who attempt to convert others to their faiths prey on the weak and vulnerable. Be it the Jesuits of centuries past, or theistic parents of an innocent and naive child. Telling someone with basic intellect of a 4 year old about superstition and the powers of chanting is robbing them of the chance and choice to see and discover it for themselves when they are of age to be critically minded.
Life is mostly about self-discovery and learning, and what is learned has to be proven a posteriori. If someone were to tell you how the universe was governed without proof it's second-hand information that cannot be credible knowledge. And any religion preys on those who cannot see or understand this. It's how they keep their numbers.
Reason is the death of any religion.
