"If you believe in heaven and hell, how much do you have to hate a person not to proselytize?"

What do atheists think about Christians who do not evangelize them? Penn Fraser Jillette (of Penn and Teller fame) surely doesn’t speak for all the rest. But here’s part of his response to a gentleman who kindly approached him and handed him a copy of the New Testament.

“I don’t respect people who don’t proselytize. If you believe that there’s a heaven and hell, and people could be going to hell, and you think, ‘Well, it’s not really worth telling them this because it would make it socially awkward,’ . . . how much do you have to hate somebody to not proselytize?”
