What are you implying - that true philosophers should never take religion seriously enough to critically examine its claims?

If one took something so seriously then they wouldnt attempt to critically examine it, because its religion not science.

Religion has always been a closed belief system, however if you criticise a certain part of it I'm sure that religion will have an acceptable comeback. Science however is an open belief system i guess thats what makes it so rational and open to criticisms, then again it has to be an open system as it is still learning things already known by religion.
