When theocracy really threatened?

In his column in the current World Magazine [subscription required], Marvin Olasky includes the quotations below by an American President and then challenges his readers to identify which President it was.
"No greater thing could come to our land today than a revival of the spirit of religion. . . . I doubt if there is any problem - social, political, or economic - that would not melt away before the fire of such a spiritual awakening."

"We guard ourselves against all evils - spiritual as well as material - which may beset us. We guard against the forces of anti-Christian aggression, which may attack us from without, and the forces of ignorance and fear which may corrupt us from within."

"Today the whole world is divided between human slavery and human freedom - between pagan brutality and the Christian ideal."
Ronald Reagan? George W. Bush? No, - it was FDR. That's incredibly frightening - the New Deal was led by a "Christianist," "theocratic," "Restorationist"! It's a miracle that we survived with our religious liberties intact?
