Disband all the Churches

In balance, mankind would be better off if all the Christian churches disbanded. Why?

Alain de Botton, in his book Religion for Atheists: A Non-believer’s Guide to the Uses of Religion suggests extracting the good of Christianity, e.g. the fellowship and singing and ignoring the insanity, inanity and cruelty. That is like ignoring the crimes of the Mafia because they run good pizza restaurants.
