"And I will do everything that I can as long as I am President of the United States to remind the American people that we are one nation under God, and we may call that God different names but we remain one nation." -Barack Obama
"Well, first of all, you got to understand some of my view on freedom, it's not American's gift to the world. See, freedom is God - is God given" - George W. Bush
"And so, there is much to do; and tomorrow the work begins. I do not mistrust the future; I do not fear what is ahead. For our problems are large, but our heart is larger. Our challenges are great, but our will is greater. And if our flaws are endless, God's love is truly boundless." - George H. W. Bush
I don't agree at all that the American heritage of God and country has taken on a negative connotation. If it did, you wouldn't hear so many politicians evoking god's name.
