Reasoned faith makes just as much sense as benevolent rape.

How's that?
I completely understand the point of your comparison; let's leave it at that. Dodgy

Yeah, no reason to compare credulous apples to rape oranges.

I would not have used the rape analogy.

Reasoned faith is a veritable oxymoron simply by the universal understanding of the definition of faith.

Faith is the veritable lack of reason. Therefore, reasoned or reasonable faith is not possible.

Faith is the excuse one gives for a belief held without, or against, good reasons.

“You cannot reason people out of a position that they did not reason themselves into.”

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.

Possible source:
It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.
As quoted in Treasury of thought: forming an encyclopædia of quotations from ancient and modern authors (1872) by Maturin Murray Ballou, p. 433

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
