Do we prevent somebody being hurt by superstition or faith by rejecting and challenging those things? 

Is it mistaken to support organised religion in membership or donations?

If people do good because they are human, not because God prompts them then is it right to risk giving God any credit when they alone own their good?

Bible says God does evil to people - he is more than just standing by letting it happeng

Christians manipulate many to go in the Church door and worship God by baptising their babies by distancing God from evil as if he is not actively involved in doing it.  The language is that God tolerates evil and lets it happen.  Once you make that separation you fail to see what you are being asked to worship.  Would you really worship a God who makes terminal illness etc?

In Isaiah God says he does good and does evil.

The Bible is clear that God does make evil for he tells Israel to stone adulterers and so on to death.

Job loses all and suffers one hideous torment after another.  His family die.  He says, "The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord" (Job 1: 21).  And even, "Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil?" (Job 2: 10).

Jesus attacked people in the Temple and if he is God that means God shouts abuse at people and hits them.

Jesus himself said that God was making his cup of crucifixion suffering, "Abba, Father, all things are possible to thee; remove this cup from me yet not what I will, but what thou wilt" (Mark 14: 36).
