Sri Paramahansa Yogananda,

 SPIRITUAL TRUTHS ARE SACRED, not to be offered indiscriminately to gross materialists who abuse or malign their sanctity. Any individual who is extremely identified with the body as the be-all and end-all of existence is a gross materialist; devoted to sense pleasures and possessions, he has no yearning for soul knowledge. Through lack of any true understanding, materialists denounce God; or may otherwise condemn Him for all the ills of the world, never recognizing man's responsibility, through misuse of free choice, for his own miseries.

Jesus similarly admonished that one should not cast pearls before swine;( Matthew 7 :6 ) that is, one should not bestow spiritual wealth on the unappreciative.

18 : 67, God talks with Arjuna,
The Bhagavad Gita.
