In a 2005 interview with The New York Times, Bush said: "I believe children can receive love from gay couples but the ideal is -- and studies have shown that the ideal is where a child is raised in a married family with a man and a woman."
He sidestepped the issue when questioned by People magazine about whether he still held that belief.
"Mary Cheney is going to make a fine mom and she's going to love this child a lot," he said, according to an excerpt from the interview.

Of course they aren't anti-gay when it's one of their own who's gay. And Mary Cheney can afford great lawyers so she won't be too adversely affected by a lack of gay marriage, civil unions, or anti-discrimination law.
I'm reminded of a racist I knew in yeshiva who used to go on about n*****s. When I asked him, what about [a certain African-American mensch], he said, "Oh, I'm not talking about people like that!"
George Bush happily throws millions of gay Americans under the bus to win votes, but is nothing but supportive when it's someone close to him.
To his credit, he's better than Alan Keyes who kicked his daughter out and cut off her tuition money when she came out of the closet. Better hypocrite than 100% evil, I guess.
