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.
