Does anyone know if the Methodists, Catholics, Lutherans, Hari Krishnas, Hindus, Jews, Episcopalians, Muslims, etc. must always single out people being of a certain "special" religion as the Mormon Culture does?


No Fit...this is a mormon church owned paper, catering to a majority mormon community. Many of those reading the paper want to know. If you aren't happy about it, then why read it? Especially the religion section? You can always go to the SL Trib.

And if you want to know if those other religions are writing articles about their members, nothing is stopping you from investigating. You seem to enjoy reading up and making comments about the mormons. No reason you shouldn't do it for the others.

No. Nor do I really care.

Ya know, if you don't like news stories related to the LDS Church perhaps you out to try reading another paper. One not owned by the LDS Church maybe. I don't really care for the SL Trib, so you know what I did? I quit reading it. Amazingly simple. Making simple changes in your life to reduce stress is quite liberating really. Give it a try.

I loved the story about Andrew. What a great example to many and also I must confess I can see my children ot at least I wish they can become like him in the future. I'm from Mexico and my husband is from the U.S. So our children have a dual citizenship as well. He is a great example of what the gospel can bring to your life if you want to. Thanks for publishing this article.

Why do we have to focus on "Mormon" athletes? Can't we move past the religious dividing lines that seem to grip this state and obviously this newspaper. This type of article is more appropriate in the Church News, not a subscription newspaper.

Fine example of 'us against the world'.

This story is in the religion section. There is no problem with that. I enjoy seeing others of my faith succeed. Obviously you were curious because you read it too. And by the way, google Catholics in the Olympics, and there is an entere web page devoted to Catholics competing in this years Olympics.
