NEWS JUNKIE POST
It seems like conservatives will take Tiger Woods back if he repents and gives his life to Christ. FOX News reports….
Good that you’re keeping this out there and “in-play”, Dolores.
I think this clip functions well as evidence, supporting the sea of thoughtful criticisms, which demonstrate the hegemonic nature of US media outlets (and how those outlets are functioning, more and more, on the “sub-zero level” of logical thought and factual analysis.)
Brit Hume looks sick. Seriously sick in fact. I wonder if that’s why he is suddenly clinging to his god.
Brit Hume obviously knows nothing about Buddhism which teaches the goal of achieving the highest possible state as a being, whereas Christianity teaches the belief in a spirit in the air and ranks as superstition.
While his sentiments may be in the right place, his candor reflects extreme bias. He pretty dismissed the religious beliefs of millions. Brit, I would strongly suggest that you first study and understand the teachings of Buddhism before making such a statement. I only wish we could regress in history and get the testimonies of millions of so-called “heretics” who were tortured and murdered in the name of Christianity to get their take on your comment.
This comment by Hume is insane. How can Fox permit this type of commentary. Our country was founded with religious freedom. Fox is pandering to the extreme right, it’s hard to believe intelligent people actually work for Fox.
If Hume had said the opposite, that Woods should leave Christianity and become a Buddhist in order to SAVE HIMSELF, you all would singing his praises.
In America, Is the freedom of speech for one’s religion no longer acceptable if one is a Christian?
Hume thinks a saving faith in Jesus Christ, trusting in Gos, not oneself, is more beneficial and true than Buddhism.
Get over it.
Here’s what you obviously don’t understand. Buddhists wouldn’t go there in the first place. Buddhist in their teaching have an equal respect for all other faiths. A Television news anchor should understand not to push his religious beliefs on the audience. It’s simply classless and irresponsible.
Respecting another’s faith does not mean you have to agree and patronize them so their feeling don’t get hurt. Hume gave a heart felt invite to consider another faith.
What ever happened to openness and honesty? He was being an authentic Christian, not trying to judge Tiger himself.
Sharing one’s faith in good will is foundational to Christian scripture and Jesus’ example. It should not be done with the sword as some Muslim do, or as some crusaders did.
I think your real rub is this: “A Television news anchor should understand not to push his religious beliefs on the audience. It’s simply classless and irresponsible.” That’s not a religion problem, that is a human and major American problem – people don’t like others challenging, questioning stating that their beliefs are in error or wrong…we want to continue to walk arrogant /indifferent and in rebellion to the call to believe in Jesus. IMO.
Then he should call Tiger up when he gets off the clock and do it.
Brit, you’re said to be a Christian. I don’t think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption that is offered by the Buddhist faith. So my message to you is Brit, is to turn to the Buddhist faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world.
See how I made statements without any knowledge of what I’m talking about?
“Let’s use nice-sounding words along with Christianity to make it sound better, and furthermore make bad faces when pronouncing ‘Buddhist’ to make it sound worse, and then whatever we say will be right”
Does that really work on some people? I guess it would: to the people who blindly support anything and everything Christian without even knowing why. After all, “faith” is defined as something you believe without having any evidence.
it might work, but it all depends on the person
Buddha had a better suggestion…….. may be tiger should have used
Even he didnt know how to deal with women…
Lord, how should we conduct ourselves with regard to women?
—Don’t see them, ?nanda.
—But if we should see them?
—Don’t talk to them.
—But if they should talk to us?
—Keep wide awake, ?nanda.
I wonder what Jesus was thinkin when he spoke to prostitute Mary or so…… Well He would have been tempted badly.. but he managed to get over it, i guess………… Nice guy……
No pun intented…. I was just putting what i know here….. may be i am biased, i love Jesus these days..:)
