“I meant it’s very important for people not to be overly critical of someone else until you’ve examined your own heart.”

Too little too late, Shrub. Examination of your heart should have started at least 13 years ago, when there was a still a slight chance it could have done some good.

Oh, so now that he's NOT the President....he has a different thought process on this issue.......interesting!!!

When are folks going to STOP calling it "SAME-SEX" Marriage or "SAME-SEX" Divorce? It's JUST Marriage and JUST Divorce.......and nothing else!!!

He's still qualifying his thoughts about gay and lesbian people in the exact same way he did 10 years ago in an interview with Diane Sawyer.

In December 2003, Bush was asked about the subject of so-called "gay marriage" and whether he thought gay and lesbians were "sinners":

"I think we're all sinners. One of my favorite Bible verses says, "Why would I take a speck out of your eye when I have a log in my own?" ... and having said that, however, I do believe in the sanctity of marriage.... but I don't see that as conflict with being a tolerant person or an understanding person."

Here in 2013, he says the very same thing.

Imagine being asked about his regard for people of another race, or religion, or disability, and Bush saying "I think we're all sinners."

He still defines gay and lesbian people by their "sin". And while he claims that he's a "sinner" too, and that his sins may even be greater, they still are sinners.

********
By the way, the 2003 interview revealed this little tidbit:

DIANE SAWYER: First of all, I just want to ask about reading. Mr. President, you know that there was a great deal of reporting about the fact that you said, first of all, that you let Condoleezza Rice and Andrew Card give you a flavor of what's in the news.

PRESIDENT BUSH: Yes.

DIANE SAWYER: That you don't read the stories yourself.

PRESIDENT BUSH: Yes. I get my news from people who don't editorialize. They give me the actual news, and it makes it easier to digest, on a daily basis, the facts.

DIANE SAWYER: Is it just harder to read constant criticism or to read —

PRESIDENT BUSH: Why even put up with it when you can get the facts elsewhere? I'm a lucky man. I've got, it's not just Condi and Andy, it's all kinds of people in my administration who are charged with different responsibilities, and they come in and say this is what's happening, this isn't what's happening.

I say F**K you George Bush!
Time will NOT heal the damage you've done.

Forget gay equality ... George Bush was responsible for many deaths, much hardship and his 'presidency' was the start of the downward spiral of hate, fear and division that America is still trying to pull out of.

To give ANY validity to his retrospect of events since his reign is downright blasphemous.

NOTHING he could say will change the hard facts that he will forever be known as one of America's worst presidents.

George Bush was a great president as well as a great man. Our nation was strong and no one dared push us around. Now we're weak and no one fears the US. They laugh and make fun of Obama. It's a sad difference from then and now.
Former President Bush is NOT a great man and lied to the American people in order to SKIRT the Constitution......in order to violate our privacy and other violations!!!

Bush also sold fake stock bonds in his earlier days because he couldn't find oil to save his soul!!!
