(The following Letter to the Editor has been submitted by Hans Peter Jorgensen of Decorah):

"I see from your reporting that there will be two choices for citizens who wish to participate in public displays of prayer. Competing prayer events, so to speak. In this regard I note that the Bible says, (Matthew 6, Verse 5) "And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and the street corners, that they may be seen by men. Truly, I say unto you, they have their reward. But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you."
