Why do so many Catholics drop the ball when it comes to EENS?

The very best they can possibly hope for is a powerful amount of time in Purgatory, which they'll mistake for hell in any event.

Luke 12:46-48 Wrote:The lord of that servant will come in the day that he hopeth not, and at the hour that he knoweth not, and shall separate him, and shall appoint him his portion with unbelievers. And that servant who knew the will of his lord, and prepared not himself, and did not according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. And unto whomsoever much is given, of him much shall be required: and to whom they have committed much, of him they will demand the more.

Also, indulgences are only obtainable by people in a state of grace, so an indulgence doesn't help one really get to heaven, except perhaps in helping that person handle what is to come in life better.
