I have always said Faith and Reason can never be separated. Atheists say it has to be-—but they live by faith in their failed system, also, but unlike Christians who gladly state their faith....Atheists lie and say “faith” is “irrational” although their lives are lived on faith of sick, twisted ideas such as Marxism.
All postmodernist’s thinking is irrational—that you can compartmentalize human beings and take away the moral nature from man (Stalin’s idea of “separation of church and state”).
You can not have a complete human being—a flourishing one by removing either the rational element or the moral one. That is what constitutes the Nature of Man. Faith and Reason are designed to function together in all civil societies. Zero wants “Lord of the Flies”....godless world so they can create a termite colony of people.
Remove either faith or reason and you have a disaster (Libertarians need to wise up). It is why the USA was only possible during the window of The Age of Reason when God was not yet obliterated by the Marxists and Austins and Benthams.
As for Mormonism—there is no rational thinking involved in that ideology—which is so bizarre you have to wonder if Romney is insane. It is why I can’t vote for him—I guess you can say it is because of his religion, when I think of it as being about his rational abilities.
