Letter: Of course poverty is a faith issue

You asked community members of faith or not, “Is poverty a faith issue?” Of course it is. There are two universal laws upon which all the others rest; love God above all things with our whole heart, mind, soul and strength; and love our neighbor as ourself. Without this love of and for God, we cannot love our neighbor and without love of neighbor we cannot love God. Why else would anyone care about another poor suffering soul?
