Keep the Faith 

Pin It

Orphaned by Addicts” [July 4, City Weekly] breaks my heart in so many ways. One thing I don’t understand is how these parents were still allowed to keep their children after so many visits with the police and being in jail. Were there no other options for these children?

While reading this article, I kept thinking how much Maycie Nielsen still continued to forgive her parents and give them chance after chance after chance. It amazes me how truly forgiving children are.

Maycie, continue to have faith and overcome the horrible afflictions that you have endured. You can be a force to be reckoned with. You will be an amazing future mother if you can utilize these afflictions to do good for others.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
