Some still pine for the good old days when medical practitioners used theology and astrology as the basis for health care.

The struggle to marginalize superstition will take more time however there can be no let up in reminding the public to be wary.

I may be the first person in the history of the website Trip Advisor to post as part of my London hotel review, that bibles be removed from rooms. As a paying guest I do not wish to be proselyted. On the way to the rally on the 18th I took along the found Gideon and pitched it as a symbolic act. Following that up to the hotel management was easy. (FYI - hotels do not pay for bibles, Books of Mormon or Gitas, they are provided by NGO religious corporations and hence this is not destroying hotel property.)

Objecting to the influence of religion is necessary, do it often and in public.
