Why does someone always have

Why does someone always have to say something about someone else's faith? How are YOU practicing tolerance of others beliefs when you don't seem to do it yourself Son of Scoob? If you want someone to respect your views of not being religious then don't knock someone else for having them.

Some people

seem completely unable to restrain themselves from an unfortunate and unattractive compulsion to bomb us with their two cents, even if it makes them look, well, see above.

I too wish Mr. Trammel a speedy recovery and all the comfort of his faith, whatever that may be.

Other pilot

Any word yet on the other pilot? It seems everyone else has been identified but the other surviving pilot/passenger has not had a name or condition released. May the Lord bless them both with a speedy recovery!

The article

Is about the surviving Pilot. Try to Curb your National Inquirer minds for the moments.

May the Good Lord keep watching over Mr Trammell and help him in his physical and mental recovery from this tragedy. No doubt, he will be coping with this the rest of his life, no matter what role he may have/have not played in the accident.

Other places are telling the co-pilot

The co-pilot was Jeremy Hayden from the same service as the pilot. The Greenwood paper freely list his name.
