Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart sent a special congratulatory letter to the show and also attended the show in person. He commended the show by saying, "It is extraordinary. It's not only esthetically extraordinary but it is also ethically very uplifting." Referring to atheism's destructive role, he said, "The fact is, some things are eternal, and no matter what the difficulties in this life, truth will prevail, and mankind cannot be destroyed. I was very moved by the song that talked about the damage that atheism has caused and is causing. It was very moving. But all of the performances were moving, uplifting. They teach us about the eternal nature of mankind and how we have to be humble. The songs carry the sense that evil will not prevail, and so the message is that the truth ultimately prevails."
