City takes political correctness too far

I was delighted to read Mark Mayfield's letter (Jan. 25) praising Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan's bold appeasing of the vocal minority in this town who loudly cry out for political correctness.
I, too, fear that some church, say the Zoroastrians - who seem to outnumber the Gozer worshippers these days - will assault and take over our city's government. I seem to see more Wiccan bumper stickers lately, too. What if the three groups entered into some ecumenical coalition and outnumbered us all? Perhaps security at city hall should be increased.
Folks, enough. We all understand about the separation of church and state. But, perhaps it's time for some of us to consider that, historically, it did not mean separation of God and state. Ever wonder why, in federal court, witnesses swear on a Bible. Why does Congress have chaplains? And - deep breath now - prayer. It happens.
Some of you need to bone up on what the deist gentlemen who founded this country believed and did and did not write into our paperwork.
