And Pres. Reagan’s successor, George H.W. Bush, in a 1987 interview at O’Hare Airport:
Sherman: What will you do to win the votes of the Americans who are atheists?
Bush: I guess I’m pretty weak in the atheist community. Faith in God is important to me.
Sherman: Surely you recognize the equal citizenship and patriotism of Americans who are atheists?
Bush: No, I don’t know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God.
Sherman (somewhat taken aback): Do you support as a sound constitutional principle the separation of state and church?
Bush: Yes, I support the separation of church and state. I’m just not very high on atheists.

And THIS folks, is why George Sr. is a total dick! Not only is he an elitist prick, but he is a war profiteer with the blood of thousands on his greedy amoral hands! I’ll take atheism over his brand of myth loving bullshit any day!
