If you are talking about conservative economists who reject mathematical economics, then of course you are right. Such economists have disgraced themselves as scientists in the name of political ideology  as have for instance biologists who in the name of religious ideology rejected evolution.
But mathematical economists are at least as mathematical and logical in their thinking as any engineer. Look at 2010 Mathematics Subject Classification (MSC2010)
http://www.ams.org/mathscinet/msc/pdfs/classifications2010.pdf
and go to 91 and all its subsets. If you want to say that all this mathematical science that is published in this area is not legitimate just because you say so, then have at it.
But I for one just don't respect science denial, no matter what the science is  never have, never will.
