Logo violates separation of church and state

Letter to the Editor

I understand the King County Council has voted to use the likeness of a Christian minister as the King County logo.

If they are going to violate the separation of church and state in this way, then I think they should also post the Ten Commandments on all public buildings and the copy posted in the King County Council chambers should underline the one that says, “Thou Shalt Not Steal.”

I really feel that the $600,000 that it is going to cost to change the logo could be used in better ways.
