There are a lot of people on the planet, but, it seems, very few Humans. That seems to be an outrageous statement, but to me, it appears to be that way. Why do I think that? It boils down to the definition of what a human is. For example, Humans don't kill people. Why? Humans by my definition are those who have understood the value of being alive and appreciate that unique, but temporary condition. Appreciating that about oneself, automatically means understanding that basic truth about every other Being on the planet.
I appreciate that at the ground level, religion provides many kindnesses and support for people.
My beef is with the organisations, the Churches and Temples, synagogues and Mosques and all those institutions and in particular, the hierarchies and power structures; frequently also the holders of those positions, especially at the upper end of the hierarchies. Look at their finances, and you can see very quickly that being in charge of such sums, will corrupt anybody. This list is from Wikipedia:
