I don't think that the fact that Christianity is evangelical makes it impossible to have a discussion about paganism with a Christian - HOWEVER!  It does take looking at the world a different way.

Christianity is meant to be a religion for EVERYONE.  You're SUPPOSED to share it, bring it to people that haven't found it, etc.  A lot of pagan religions really don't give a damn what other people believe - and that's a fundamental change in worldview.  Some pagan religions are downright secretive.

Can we have a conversation?  of course we can.  Do I have the proof that I'm more right than you? ... nope, and I don't need it.  If you try to discriminate against me for my religion, I don't need proof my religion's okay - I need a lawyer.

It's not the same world as when Lutherans were fighting for the right to believe as they would.  So it's not the same set of problems.

And, again, pagan theologies just plain aren't that put together.  Belief isn't nearly as important as acts in a lot of pagan faiths.  As long as you do the right thing, it doesn't matter if you believe you're really sacrificing to Bessy the Cow.
