As a person that doesn't believe in any religion, I don't find it any different than the folks that give money to their church. I guess religion had its place back when most people were uneducated and it was used to explain things, but now, science.
Religion today teaches people to believe in things without any proof. They are indoctrinated into this belief as young children. Not a big jump to believing in the grapefruit under the bed thing.
