Bush Responds to Ron Reagan's Religious Criticism

'I've always said I think it's very important for someone not to try to take the speck out of someone else's eye when they may have a log in their own,' President Bush said Tuesday in response to recent criticism by former President Ronald Reagan's son that politicians not wear their religious faith on their sleeve.

Bush stressed the need for religious people to run for political office, but said he's 'very mindful about saying, 'Oh, vote for me. I'm more religious than my neighbor.'

'And I think it's important for people of religion to serve. I think it's very important for people who are serving to make sure there's a separation of church and state,' Bush added.
