Religion Con

Imagine an androgynous being came to the door dressed all in black. He/she said to you, Friend, soon, a red dragon 20 km (12.43 miles) across is going to hover over this city and fry everyone here with its fiery breath. But, I have this limited time offer. Give us a mere $20 a month with convenient pre-authorised chequing and I will personally guarantee that dragon will never hurt you. You would think either this person had escaped from a mental institution, or was pulling the cheesiest con ever, something thought up by a nine year old. So how come you fall for it when a Christian pulls the identical con?
