No, I don’t know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God…. Yes, I support the separation of church and state. I’m just not very high on atheists.

George H. W. Bush on Aug 27, 1987.

The greatest freedom we have or one of the greatest freedoms is the right to worship the way you see fit. On the other hand, I don’t see how you can be president at least from my perspective, how you can be president, without a relationship with the Lord.

George W. Bush on Jan 10, 2005.

As for me, I would like to sneak up to heaven with a macho machine gun, bed a few of those promised virgins (I hear they dig guys with guns) and then … walk up to God’s chamber and kill Him.
