I would never make statements like this. By saying only a certain group, or idea is the only answer, is incorrect. There are other ideas other than secular humanism that would classify as "real" opposition to theocracy.

You will have to be more specific to what he supposedly expressed for which he didn't agree. Here is a quote from George Bush 4 years prior to the date you're talking about.

Statement by George Bush, August 27, 1988:"...I don't know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God."

So what view was he bullied into expressing?
