Religious Coercion

I recently read a Jerusalem Post article on a Charedi(Orthodox) Woman who
said that "it is against Jewish law to coerce someone to be religious." Can
any one expand on this idea, give any sources, and give me more details?
Where is the balance between not coercing and not standing idly by while
someone sins?

Thanks
