'Evil' is necessary because it is what defines 'good.' One without the other is impossible. They are opposite ends of the same spectrum. No matter how many times you cut one end off, there is still part of the spectrum left and each extreme is still there. Theoretically some may be removed, but in effect it never changes.
With that said, I don't believe in God or religion. In general, religion is just a set of comforting fairy tales that help people feel better about the fact that they are utterly worthless and insignificant in the grand scheme of things and to soothe their fear of death. But I won't get too deep into that because it's been discussed to death in many other threads.
