    From how Brandon describes himself, he probably doesn't believe in God and so where many people who are Christian would credit what happened to a higher power, someone else may not. I think that the reporter was being respectful to Brandon, maybe she asked him if he felt like God was watching over him and maybe he said, I don't share that belief, but I do know that there were a great many good people. A person is not bad or evil because they don't share our beliefs, I am active LDS, but my only child is an atheist, she is a wonderful child and I am blessed to have her in my life. I can't force what I believe on her, but I can love her even if we differ.

    I don't think they said it in a bad away about it. I was waiting for the punch line of 'he don't know what was his saving grace, but it was truly God and the LDS church' or 'the people that came to his aid were Mormons' or something. Not so though.

    To the reporter, Emiley Morgan:
    Why lead off the story with a declaration of the victim's non-faith? He was pulled out from under a burning car by good people and you throw him under a bus for not believing in a higher power that saved him!
    I am active LDS, and am often dismayed by Utah's prevalent judgmental saint vs. gentile attitude. It disturbs and disheartens me to see you use a feel bad approach to a feel good story.
