    CentralJersey.com: Prior to the superintendent’s letter, Alliance Defending Freedom, a nonprofit legal organization that deals primarily with religious freedom issues, sent a letter to district officials to lobby for the songs’ inclusion. ”We write to explain that every federal court to examine the issue has determined that including Christmas carols and other religious music in school choir programs fully complies with the First Amendment and to urge you to immediately rescind the new policy instituted by administrative officials,” the letter read. The letter, written by the organization’s legal counsel, further stated the district’s role as it pertains to the First Amendment is to remain neutral from religion and refrain “from demonstrating an unconstitutional hostility toward songs with religious origins.”
