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?

WHY IT IS BAD TO BELIEVE IN REVELATION

If God is good he is best for you so he will reveal his existence. He will guide you. So the God dogma implies that God reveals himself and his works and principles to us. God is a being that must be obeyed. You have to submit yourself to him and put your own needs and wants aside.

Men and women would not dare to ask you to worship and serve them so they have to invent a revelation from God to dupe you into doing what they want. They explain the nasty and illogical side of the revelation as a mystery or a paradox and with that they could command anything in the name of their God. Following God is following the man who invented the rules and not God at all because some people are totally convinced that Muhammad was the revealer of God and others that it was Jesus and others that it was Joseph Smith.
 
The truth is that since I only love me it follows that I should determine what is right and wrong without reference to the wishes of a deity and anybody who says otherwise is insincere for we all know that all love is self-love and that when I help others even at a great loss to myself it still remains true that this goodness is just an expansion of self-love, of my love for me. To excuse them by blaming thoughtlessness does not work for they should know better.

You seem to only want to believe in the revelations of God or gods for comfort and as a justification for morality which is seen in terms of doing what they command. It is solely to justify morality for you do not need them for comfort. You do not need them to make you feel safe in this world for even if they exist there is no guarantee that they will shield you through the perils of life even if they want to. And you can comfort yourself with an afterlife to look forward to without believing in Gods. So you really want belief in gods just so that the gods can tell you what to do and how to live. If you need them for that then it follows that you hold that we cannot work out morality adequately for ourselves and need instructional orders from Heaven. That kind of thinking is full of hazards and will make people less likely to agree on right and wrong which rouses discord and bewilderment. It is implied by belief in deity so belief in deity is an enemy to a true perception of right and wrong. This reasoning shows how criminal prayer and casting spells are.

Belief in divinity requires you to oppose Atheism or even weak faith in God or gods as antagonistic or dangerous to morality. We cannot be expected to take this innuendo lying down.

If you believe that God exists that is the most sacred truth for he is all good and must come before everything else for nothing else is as good. So that truth comes first when God comes first. When a truth comes before human welfare all truth must be the same for a truth no matter how important is just a truth. Therefore to cause any misperception of the truth is wrong. If we promote truth all the time the world will soon be flooded with blood. Any harm done is on our heads just because we further belief in God.
