BRIT HUME ASSAILED FOR TRYING TO CONVERT TIGER WOODS
“Brit Hume stepped in hot water when he offered Tiger Woods some controversial advice last Sunday: convert to Christianity because Buddhism cannot save your soul after all this infidelity. Naturally, some people were offended by Hume's disrespect towards Buddhism, and proselytizing for Christianity on a news show, and they made their feelings known through angry emails.” reports the Huffington Post.
Fox anchor Brit Hume suggested that Tiger Woods should trade his Buddhist faith for Christianity if he wants to make a personal comback. When host Chris Wallace asked the show's roundtable to predict the biggest sports story of 2010, Hume said: "Tiger Woods will recover as a golfer. Whether he can recover as a person I think is a very open question, and it's a tragic situation for him. I think he's lost his family, it's not clear to me if he'll be able to have a relationship with his children, but the Tiger Woods that emerges once the news value dies out of this scandal -- the extent to which he can recover -- seems to me to depend on his faith. He's said to be a Buddhist; I don't think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption that is offered by the Christian faith. So my message to Tiger would be, 'Tiger, turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world.'"
It has gotten to a point in America that you can hardly say anything without offending somebody. This time it was Bubbhism. The Gospel of Christ is an offensive. It is what got Christ crucified.
Jesus said in Luke 6:26, “Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.” We are in trouble when we do not offend anyone.
