I understand how religion is often a source of division in our society and the word "faith" can be off-putting.
It seems to me that combatting that sense was the whole point of the show. These are conversations that need to happen, and typically don't. If we cannot even "speak of faith" then the world is in worse shape than I had thought.
I keep hearing my more conservative religious friends talk about how the world is fundamentally opposed to faith. I hate it when it seems as if they're right.
This change may be necessary for ratings or whatnot, and all that is reality, but it makes me very sad.
