CAPE CORAL, Fla. - A Cape Coral man wants the Ten Commandments displayed at city hall and other government buildings.

Dick Kalfus wrote Mayor John Sullivan urging him to support the idea.

"They should be hanging in every public office, school, so that we can be a leader and promote morality," Kalfus said.

Kalfus knows the idea is controversial, but stands by it.

"I would rather live in a community that has good moral foundation," he said.

Cape Mayor John Sullivan agrees.

"I think it's a great idea," he said.

Residents in the Cape are split. Some support it. Others don't, saying it violates separation of church and state.

Mayor John Sullivan has the city attorney looking into the possibility.

"I want to careful about this," Mayor Sullivan said.

If the city determines it's not a violation of the separation of church and state, they could $ove forward with the plan. But as of right now this is just an idea.
