"The Great Auditorium, a nationally recognized landmark, is steeped in history. The building has hosted Ulysses S. Grant and six other U.S. presidents, as well as 27 of New Jersey’s governors. Mark Twain was a member of the auditorium’s board of directors, and religious leaders like the Rev. Billy Graham have spoken there."

Neptune Public Schools Superintendent David Mooij should be commended for his firm stance against this assault, and any attorney who values America's FOUNDING PRINCIPLES needs to stand with him and the school district on this issue.
