Back to county's Christian roots

When I read that the King County Council had approved $600,000 (which we all know will be closer to $1 million) to change the county’s logo, I was outraged (March 1, “Martin Luther King’s likeness will become official county symbol”). How could they spend money on a logo when so many other things desperately need funding? As I was fuming over this lapse in judgment, it occurred to me that I should be thankful. How refreshing it is to finally have the government go back to our Christian roots. King preached that in God’s eyes, all men are equal regardless of the color of their skin. Perhaps this marks our county’s turning-point back to God and his messengers like Rev. King.

Though I still disapprove the spending of tax dollars for a logo change, I thank the council for once again embracing the Christianity that this country and county were built on. I can only hope that their next steps include allowing prayer in the schools and putting the 10 Commandments at the county courthouse.
