Because religion is laughable

Be Saved Or Burn

I was never a very good evangelist, because through some divine plan I ended up being embarrassed to broach the very personal topic of religion with complete strangers.  Never mind that the message itself has tremendous plausibility issues.

But of course, I had to do it.  I wouldn't be a good Christian otherwise.  The world was lost, after all, and who was going to save people from Hell if we didn't speak up?

So off I went:

"Jesus loves you."
"That's nice."

"You need to be saved!"
"From what?"
"From Hell."
"I don't believe in Hell."

"God loves you and wants to be saved."
"Save from what?"
"I thought you said he loved me?"

You see, evangelists struggle at the first hurdle: which is to persuade people that they have a problem that needs fixing.

Which, I suspect, is why, very often, idiots become believers.
