The two presidents most often associated with principles of establishment and free exercise of religion from the First Amendment are Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.  Unfortunately for those atheists who want Divine Providence thrown out, the inaugural addresses of these statesmen acknowledge divine Providence:

“I shall need too, the favor of that Being in whose hands we are…who has covered our infancy with His providence and our riper years with his wisdom and power,…”

Thomas Jefferson, Second Inaugural Address


“in the guardianship and guidance of that Almighty Being whose power regulates the destiny of nations, whose blessings have been so conspicuously dispensed to this rising Republic, and to whom we are bound to address our devout gratitude for the past, as well as our fervent supplications and best hopes for the future.”

James Madison, First Inaugural Address

Our first president in his first inaugural address offered his “fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the universe, who presides in the councils of nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect.”  As a matter of fact, every president without exception in his inaugural address has acknowledged the blessings of God on our country in the past and called upon His favor for our future.  To wipe out that much of America’s official and permanent history is a daunting task, even for the activist courts!
