Religious life set against the secular…A model for Tropicana.

Ocean Grove, NJ  is a town founded by Methodists in 1869.  At first it was a religious town with blue laws and many rules for living.   But now the town is mixed:  religious and secular.

The two factions sometimes clash, and citizens in such a place need to consider themselves to be a community with mutual tolerance.

Tropicana has had a Christian group, but, for the most part it seems to be a balanced community culturally.

Murex will not determine the culture in the park, although their management will have some influence.
