Is it a gaffe, or is the media being culturally insensitive?

So Bush called the Pope "Sir"

Being a Christian man, I don't think Bush meant any disrespect.

Being from west Texas and generally the south, the use of "Sir" is a greeting of respect. I know I use it often, specifically as an expression of respect.

Dear media,

Settle down, Beavis.

Good point, Nick. Yes, the Pope IS Catholic. I likely would have made the same mistake. Although, I likely would have thought "Your Eminence, or Holy Father". My Mouth would have said Sir. Then again, I'm just a goof of a cheddarhead. Bush hasn't that advantage! ;-)

I had thought about putting the whole But Bush Isn't Catholic thing into the mix... but I would figure that most people would have that same question if not Catholic. That said, I don't know if any particular title would come to me at that point either.

In the end, he didn't say dude or hey you :)
