← Emotional arguments against religion

Maybe try asking them to make reasoned arguments to you to argue about their religion to you. Every argument they make that smacks of emotion remind them to stick to facts. Ask them to convert you. Ask them to make arguments to you, without using emotional pleas to get you to see things their way and watch THEM struggle. Keep pointing out that what they're saying and what they believe is based on how they FEEL about the issue. They'll get frustrated, believe me, and then maybe just maybe, they'll think a little more about their religion later. Maybe. We can only hope.
