Why should we care? What does it matter what people believe?
Consider (billboard near my house)...
If people kept their religious views to themselves,
then what people believe would not matter.
If people's mistaken beliefs did not cause present suffering or in the past was not responsible for killing and torturing millions, we could look the other way.

If erroneus beliefs did not affect our schools, we could remain silent.
Under control of religious conservatives - actually, one dentist - the Texas School Board makes changes that will affect the children of Texas and possibly the entire USA:
1. "Texas School Board Set to Vote on Challenge to Evolution"
2. "Texas School Board Passes Controversial Social Studies Curriculum"
Changed the social studies curriculum to stress conservative agendas such as elevating Joe McCarthy and degrading the topics that should not be diminished such as Jefferson's views and the importance of separation of church and state.
3. "Texas schools board rewrites US history with lessons promoting God and guns."
4. Claiming that the USA is a Christian nation.
If Christian evangelicals would stop abusing the separation of church and state in the US military and other areas of the government, we could cease confronting them as they compromise one of our country's greatest founding principles.

If you had loved ones and dear friends who based their life decisions on superstition, mythology and unfounded fears, could you remain silent?
If you loved your country and its citizens and wanted it to prosper and continue to lead the world in science and technology, would you stand by as people spread untruths
about science and history?
If you knew how those with archaic religious beliefs were hurting or murdering minority groups such as gays/lesbians and women in the name of religion,
could you turn away or remain silent?
