So, what's the rebuttal to the person who commented with all quotes from past presidents praising god and the bible?:

"The rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God."
- John F. Kennedy

“It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.”
- George Washington

“Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.”
- Benjamin Franklin

"In regards to this great Book [the Bible], I have but to say it is the best gift God has given to man. All the good the Savior gave to the world was communicated through this Book. But for it we could not know right from wrong. All things most desirable for man’s welfare, here and hereafter, are found portrayed in it."
- Abraham Lincoln

“Without God there could be no American form of government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Being is the first, the most basic, expression of Americanism. Thus, the founding fathers of America saw it, and thus with God’s help, it will continue to be.”
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

“[The United States is] founded on the principles of Christianity”
- Franklin D. Roosevelt, President
