Default Old Bush Quote

First off, I just wanna say that I realize that George H.W. Bush has no relevance to recent news, not unlike talking about John Kerry after the election.

I was just wondering if anyone had heard this quote before. Questionable because no major media apparently reported it. However, it supposedly has two sources: the Boulder Daily Camera on Monday February 27, 1989 and "Free Inquiry" magazine, Fall 1988 issue, Volume 8, Number 4, page 16.

The following exchange took place at the Chicago airport between
Robert I. Sherman of American Atheist Press and George Bush, on August
27 1988. Sherman is a fully accredited reporter, and was present by
invitation as a member of the press corps. The Republican presidential
nominee was there to announce federal disaster relief for Illinois.
The discussion turned to the presidential primary:

RS: "What will you do to win the votes of Americans who are
GB: "I guess I'm pretty weak in the atheist community. Faith in God
is important to me."
RS: "Surely you recognize the equal citizenship and patriotism of
Americans who are atheists?"
GB: "No, I don't know that atheists should be considered as
citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one
nation under God."

RS: "Do you support as a sound constitutional principle the
separation of state and church?"
GB: "Yes, I support the separation of church and state. I'm just
not very high on atheists."
bg85 on another forum:
"i always refer to myself as a "missionary agnostic." that is, not only do i not know shit about shit, but i'm going to try and convince you that you don't know shit about shit either and there's no way for you to know shit about shit."
