Off my skis today, bored . . . as this shows.
I agree faith can be pretty to see, as far as there being hope wherever there is faith? Well, a harsh, but obvious, example: the suicide pilots of 9-11 had faith. And we can find endless more examples of faith leading horror. Certainly faith sometimes produces nice outcomes too, but we certainly cannot generalize that faith is always good!
faith (from dictionary)
1. Confident belief in the truth, value, or trustworthiness of a person, idea, or thing.
2. Belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence.
3. Loyalty to a person or thing; allegiance: keeping faith with one's supporters.
4. The body of dogma of a religion: i.e. the Muslim faith.
