You caught me (“Kirby: How much pain does your faith cause?” July 12). I’m among your target audience. Thanks for calling me an idiot, by the way. You sure showed me a thing or two about compassion. Mind if my idiotic self gives her two cents, or shall I tell my sense of reason to “shut up and sit in the back”? You referred to “faith” as a synonym for “religion,” but I will refer to it as the belief that God knows what He’s doing. I have faith that a loving Heavenly Father has a beaut...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

Or maybe they just never hear about the starving or sick child in Africa or numerous other locations that “could be saved for a just a few cents a day” (less than the cost of feeding a medium-sized dog in the United States). The confessed dog owner does not recognize that by owning the dog she is daily making the same choi...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

C. Fields: “Any man who hates babies and dogs can’t be all bad.” I still wonder if she was being sarcastic about the response of several people about a recent killing of a dog by a policeman who was looking for a toddler. If she was, thanks – we sure needed that. If, however, the letter real...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

I do not. While I respect their opinions and desires, I do not share them. More importantly, I am uncomfortable with their methods for seeking change in the church, which work well for other causes like civil rights campaigns in the public square but are, in my view, inappropriate for advancing personal views in the LDS...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The lightning-sparked fire, which started on Friday, grew from about 60 acres on Saturday to 375 acres by Sunday morning. About 5 percent of the fire at that time was contained, according to a news release. The wildfire was burning through heavy timber in the Ashley National Forest, about 9 miles south of Fruitland.
