Rational arguments don't usually work on religious people. Otherwise, there wouldn't be religious people.

Religion is strictly a logical process, or it would be science. However, there is rational thought involved with belief. So if you are trying to prove a belief you may find both logic and faith. So I would amend the statement to say that in matters of faith strictly rational arguments will not be sufficient to persuade people of faith.
Outstanding love- I don't see the comment aimed at Christianity. You can't prove the existence of Allah (my appologies if that is spelled wrong), or the pagan gods/goddesses, either.
Op- I would be interested to hear the original context of the comment.
