Dear Sharoane, Though we share a common tongue, we all speak a different language and are responsible for our interpretations of the words expressed by others. If by "faith" you mean "religious faith" it was definitely not my intention to encourage anyone to that conclusion. If that conclusion were to occur it would be, for me, a matter of regret. However, I am not responsible for the interpretation of others and can only hope we wield our disparate "faiths" with kindness (though, of course, that word is also open to disparate interpretations :-).
