What can we do about this plague called religion?

It is almost impossible to turn on the Televised News or go to your favorite news website (actual news not this crap called alt-media which masquerades as journalism, looking at you TYT and Alex Jones) these days without been assaulted by some or other story/crime that has been created by some or other idiotic belief in a superstition. To prove my point I had a quick loom at The Independent News in Britain and got links to the following news stories from their front page.

 


And then I stopped as there were actually to many more links, and well this is not free advertising. Ok this below is.

So, what are we to do as skeptics who do not buy into these delusions which drive these atrocities. As I suggested in my "dear Muslim" letter the other day, the onus lies on the religions to sort their shit out. All we can do as skeptics is raise the profile of the problem and hope that the religious do something good by getting rid of their problems, or we can raise the profile of the lunacy and watch the world burn. As skeptics our hands are tied, all we can do is try educate, and honestly I don't think there is anything else we can do.
