This really isn't anything different than any other president has said in living memory. If anything, it's not as extreme as some of them.

For example-

No, I don't know that atheists should be regarded as citizens, nor should they be regarded as patriotic. This is one nation under God.

That was George H. W. Bush.

That said, I will give his piece of shit son credit for one thing. He said this:

I will be your president regardless of your faith. And I don't expect you to agree with me, necessarily, on religion. As a matter of fact, no president should ever try to impose religion on our society. The great – the great tradition of America is one where people can worship the – the way they want to worship. And if they choose not to worship, they're just as patriotic as your neighbor.

I can't remember any other time when a Republican at pretty much any level, let alone a president, would say that about atheists.

To be fair, Dubya said a whole lot of things that no president before or since has said, mostly because his grasp of the vocabulary, grammar, and basic sentence structures of the English language is tenuous at best.

Ok, but no one has given me a straight answer yet: is our kids learning?
