Yeah whether or not religious engagement is appropriate depends on the morality of who's making the call, which often depends on the moral structures in place. Studies suggest religiously-affiliated cognition typically favors extant power structures and laws regardless of individuals' doubts about them, unfortunately.

But it is strange how sometimes it's okay to think this way, sometimes it isn't, and Team Reason can be really fickle about when and where it is/isn't. Nature seems like a generally safe bet for "rational" religious reverence, but I don't know how many people balk when the "type 1" nature of IFLScience is discussed.
