Ten Commandments statue controversy seemingly absent in Trenton

(03/03/05) TRENTON ? Despite an ongoing controversy in the U.S. about Ten Commandments statues on government property, the firestorm apparently hasn?t hit the city of Trenton.

Many residents in the city seemingly don?t pay attention to the 10-foot high Ten Commandments tablets outside City Hall. The structure, which was donated by the Fraternal Order of Eagles approximately 50 years ago, doesn?t seem to draw any interest from pedestrians on a daily basis.

When asked about the tablets, many residents say they really don?t have a problem with them at all. The Mayor of Trenton has also said he doesn?t have an issue with keeping the Ten Commandments in their present location.
