Religious Faith: Rational or Rationalization?

Faith, we're told, is required for belief in God (at least for the God of Judaism, Christianity, Islam). Faith, by definition, is not rational, but is faith irrational? The supernatural objects of faith are not subject to scientific analysis, but can belief in them still be justified or warranted? Alternatively, is faith an excuse for absence of evidence?
