In light of a recent request to put a Ten Commandments monument on the Bureau County Courthouse lawn, do you think this is a good idea?

“The 10 Commandments are the moral fabric of every human’s life. Not only do I agree with it, but where do you want the donations sent?”

Don Wooden, Princeton

“Yes, it’s a good idea. If people have a problem with it, they’ll just have to deal with it.”

Lily Wink, Hennepin

“It’s probably not a good idea because there would be too much controversial feedback.”

Dianne Boekeloo, Hennepin

“I agree with it because I believe God is the reason we are here, and we forget that too often.”

Annette DeMay, Sheffield

“Personally I don’t have a problem, but legally I don’t think they can. Maybe it can be put in a different place, not a government facility.”

Laura Shelton, Ottawa
