Oh God, you Devil

Almost forgot - in LJ's current banner quote, the younger Ron Reagan eloquently distinguishes between his father's and George Bush's official use of God:

"Dad was also a deeply, unabashedly religious man. But he never made the fatal mistake of so many politicians - wearing his faith on his sleeve to gain political advantage. True, after he was shot and nearly killed early in his presidency he came to believe that God had spared him in order that he might do good. But he accepted that as a responsibility, not a mandate. And there is a profound difference." -- Ronald Reagan, Jr.

Well put.
