    I think that it could be a good thing. We are all human beings and her words may help others realize that we all have moments in life when we question God. How do we come to know God if we don't question Him? How do we gain stronger faith in Him? I guess it is how a person looks at faith. Many people live by appearance. They want everything to look perfect and they testify about God, but is it real? I think the best people in the World will have moments like hers. Because we have doubts, does not diminish our faith in God! Sharing faith with others is also important and I think it includes those hard moments. I don't think she would mind!

    The title is still wrong. Think about it. If you replace "Jackie Kennedy's private letters on faith" with the pronoun "they," it would say "Should they been shared at all?" Does that sound right to you? Come on, DN. You can do better.

    At a minimum, consent of Jackie's daughter should have been sought and obtained prior to the release of the letters and any conditions on the release honored.

    I'm certain that even if she thought history might benefit from having her mother's thoughts on her faith, she would never have agreed to have the letters auctioned (unless perhaps the proceeds when to her mother's favorite charity).

    After a person dies, they can no longer defend and protect their privacy. Therefore, ethical people know that it becomes even more important that we protect it for them.

    After a person dies their need for privacy goes down considerably.
