First of all, it seems like you made the error of combining the words "rational" and "religious" in the same sentence.

I think religion is seen only one sided and rather negative here, there weere indeed great people who where wise (rational) and also deeply religious. Some of the restitance in the Third Reich had Christian motives, and the Dalai Lama is another person to mention.

In addition, religion was the motivation for great works of art.

Hofkirche in Dresden

I think a weakness of religioun is the intolerance it can lead to: one way out may be to view all religions as "hypotheses of god". This intolerance, however, is not unique to religion. Whereas religions appears to seen as source of all evil by many here, nationalism has proven to be a source of even greater evil.
