"Faith is very hard for a heart that has grown cynical, fearful, reactive, defensive, and suspicious, as Slag suggested." Little Hawk

I see this opinion, or something like it, often, coming from people who are believers. In most cases, they don't seem to even understand that they are broadbrushing and insulting. It is as insulting to say I am cynical, reactive, defensive and suspicious as it would be for me to say you are gullible, naive, and unintelligent. I'm perfectly comfortable with saying I think someone's belief is hogwash or full of nonsense. I'm not prepared to say people (particularly people I like) are all those negative things - unless, of course, they are.
