Not all "sensible" religions teach that unquestioning faith is a virtue.

    What would be some examples of such religions?

      Some denominations of Xianity teach finding your own answers. Whereas Catholicism is a take-it-or-leave-it (and go to Hell) religion, Protestantism focuses more on finding your own answers. But there are so many sub-denominations, each with their own tweaks. Isn't there one that even sends their kids out for year when they hit 17?

        Depends which Catholicism and which Protestantism.

        I once read an interesting article that the sects which emigrated to colonies like America where not seeking religious tolerance but the possibility to impose their own intolerance, so better be cautious about the dogmas and scarlet letters they spread.
