It seems like there is more effort put into forcing atheists and agnostics or Pagans and Wiccans into converting than there is into forcing Jews and Muslims to convert. Why is that?

I think it's because the beliefs of Jewish and Muslim believers are very close to Christian in many ways. Christian's tend to see those religions as wrong but parallel. While Pagan beliefs are seen as just wrong. So, the effort to bring Pagans "out of the dark" and introduce them to God tends to be stronger... Since the Jews and Muslims already believe in the same God, it's not seen as the same type of conversion and therefore draws a different level of need for Christians...
But that said, my mother is JW... They put the same amount of effort in to everyone. I don't know if that's better or worse... But they see everyone as equally misled - even other Christians!
