Essentially, you are correct about the original author's intentions. Psychologically, righteous religious followers feel the urge to convert others and profess its cause in the name of God. It never occurs to them that spirituality is individual and personal. The real evil is the Pride evoked from one's religion when it must be enforced upon others in some fashion because it is "right." (Let's try another Inquisition, eh? Yeah, that'll set the non-believers straight.)

If one religion is "right" and another is "right," then who is really right? Neither. They are merely (mis)interpretations of the inherent human concept of faith. A rose by any other name would smell just as sweet...but not where religion is concerned.
