Ronald Wilson Reagan, August 23, 1984, Address At An Ecumenical Prayer Breakfast, Reunion Arena, Dallas, Texas, Following The Enactment Of The “Equal Access Bill Of 1984”:

“In 1962, the Supreme Court in the New York prayer case banned the saying of prayers. In 1963, the Court banned the reading of the Bible in our public schools. From that point on, the courts pushed the meaning of the ruling ever outward, so that now our children are not allowed voluntary prayer… Cases were started to argue against tax-exempt status for churches. Suits were brought to abolish the words ‘Under God’ from the Pledge of Allegiance, and to remove ‘In God We Trust‘ from public documents and from our currency. Without 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.”
