Pres. George W. Bush 1st Inaugural - Religion Has an Honored Place

The 43rd President of the United States was George W. Bush. In his 2001 Inaugural address he said:

"And some needs and hurts are so deep they will only respond to a mentor’s touch or a pastor’s prayer. Church and charity, synagogue and mosque lend our communities their humanity, and they will have an honored place in our plans and in our laws.
"When we see that wounded traveler on the road to Jericho, we will not pass to the other side.
"Abandonment and abuse [of children] are not acts of God, they are failures of love.
"God bless you all, and God bless America."
