As part of a series entitled Words from Our Presidents we are bringing you different from quotes from U.S. Presidents on religion, religious liberty, and individual freedom. Today we have a quote from President George H. W. Bush’s remarks to the National Association of Evangelicals in Chicago, Illinois, from March 3, 1992.

“Some people seem to believe that freedom of religion requires government to keep our lives free from religion. Well, I believe they’re just plain wrong. Our government was founded on faith. Government must never promote a religion, of course, but it is duty bound to promote religious liberty. And it must never put the believer at a disadvantage because of his belief.”

President George H. W. Bush
