Silly me, thought this was going to be about articles on the LDS church.I applaud the efforts of the Deseret News. I think the Islamic culture
is largely misunderstood, and ignorance is the largest breeder of fear.
Whether or not the DN focuses too much or too little on Islam is not my call.
But a strong focus is warranted.We have major military operations in
Islamic countries and there is (as Darrel stated) a lot of misunderstanding

or in the open?of course, you are making a judgment call when you
say, "That sounds like someone whose heart isn't in the right
place". So essentially, you TOO say you are judging the thoughts and
intents of their heart.
I thought the letter would be a request for more diversity and coverage of ALL
