Pat, you're full of it. No difference between praying for someone vs ignoring the person's practiced religion and performing rites to make that person a member of a different religion? One is a thoughtful gesture, and the other says that they don't respect your chosen faith and will give you theirs.
Whether you think people should be offended or not is irrelvant. Anyone who would do this is a disrespectful a-hole.
