... her faith is still strong

Why is it that clergy say things like this as if strong faith is a good thing?

What it means is that she is desperately hoping that her guess about a spirit in the sky has some foundation and that if it does, that spirit will have a preference for humans that worship crosses as opposed to any other torture device, if indeed this spirit has any plan for any species after they're dead.

... and then we're supposed to accept this?

"If you have a political culture which rigidly excludes the voice of faith from rational dialogue ..."

If there's anything excluding faith from rational dialogue it is irrational faith!
