OKLAHOMA CITY -— Swamped with inquiries about building on Capitol grounds monuments from groups ranging from Satanists to "Flying Spaghetti Monster" advocates, the State Capitol Preservation Commission on Thursday declared a moratorium on approving any new ones.

The erection of a privately funded Ten Commandments monument on state Capitol grounds prompted a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union to have it removed.

It also piqued the interest of a menagerie of groups that have inquired of the State Capitol Preservation Commission as to whether they would be allowed to erect monuments and displays.
