deny those God-given liberties that are the inalienable right of each
person on this planet, indeed, they deny the existence of God."
March 20, 1981, at the Conservative Political Action Conference Dinner,
Mayflower Hotel, Washington, DC, Ronald Reagan stated:
powerless if the good are unafraid. That's why the Marxist vision of
man without God must eventually be seen as an empty and a false faith -
the second oldest in the world - first proclaimed in the Garden of Eden
with whispered words...'Ye shall be as gods.'
The crisis of the Western world...exists to the degree in which it is indifferent to God."
On May 17, 1982, in a proposed Constitutional Amendment on Prayer in Schools, President Ronald Reagan stated:

running out of patience."
At Reunion Arena in Dallas, 1984, Ronald Reagan stated:
God there is no virtue because there is no prompting of the
conscience....without God there is a coarsening of the society; without
God democracy will not and cannot long endure....
God more than God needs America. If we ever forget that we are One
Nation Under God, then we will be a Nation gone under."
