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)
