In Hume's day, I doubt the philosophers or great thinkers of the day ever worried that religion would "crowd out" logic, human values, and societal adherence to innately held cultural virtues.
Is that why American politicians now, and with a shameless impunity unimaginable in countries of a better educated electorate, embrace their so called "faith" much closer to their vests than they do the disappearing notion of "honor," as even the dimmest among them realizes religion will trump any effort to link obligation, whether civil, moral, or political (amoral) to a morally defensible framework of "ethics."
Read this. We need to bring better educated persons back into government, allow them back into our universities, and never stop questioning the validity of ideas.
