Because "religion" is now associated with superstitious and unscientific ideologies. The orthodoxy of modern thought is largely managed by materialists in mainstream science who dictate for their own benefit what best constitutes realistic thinking. They won the reality wars and now they are seated in positions of authority which come with perks such as academic positions and paid consulting. They'll naturally defend their ideology because being king of the hill has its nice perks in real life.
So, if you identify as "spiritual" then you get to have your cake and eat it too.
