Hume: "Tiger Should Convert To Christianity"

Former FOX News anchor Brit Hume knows better than Tiger Woods which religion Tiger Woods should follow:

The balls on this guy, huh? This is one of the reasons so many people are getting tired of the Evangelical Christian schtick George W. Bush tossed around over the course of the last decade: I know better than you do how you should live your life because I pray to the "right" god. Do you think Christians would have still approved of this statement if Tiger was Jewish? How about if he was a Christian and a Muslim was stating that he should convert to Islam? You crazy people and those nutty religions of yours...


[Update: A Daily Dish reader adds:

I am Christian who has taught Comparative Religion and attempted to present these religions not from a Christian perspective, but from within each of their own religious worldviews. Having done so, I can affirm that Buddhists do have concept of redemption - but, not surprisingly, it is not like the Christian conception. The Buddhist concept is called nirvana, itself a very misunderstood concept by many Christians. Additionally, since awareness of suffering is one of the Four Noble Truths, then forgiveness is an important dimension of overcoming suffering. Brit Hume could have found this out in about thirty seconds by just Googling it (wonderful thing, those internets).
But Hume knows that the redemption won't take if Jesus isn't the one doing it. Also, that you have to ask for it in English or else He won't be able to understand what the hell you're saying.]

Everyone knows what's best for Tiger. If Warren Beatty and Errol Flynn can be heroes for bedding lots of women, why not Tiger?

If Muslims can dream of seventy virgins, why can't Tiger debauch seventy less virginals?

The best thing for Tiger would be for him to have me and JBW at his home for a week of golf and stimulating conversation.

Golf, stimulating conversation and whores, T101. Lots and lots of whores.

AS long as Tiger is paying for them I'm good JBW.

JBW said...

Of course Tiger's paying, T101. I'm talking quality whores.

You don't want to see the trailer park that JBW drags around on his salary.

Evidently, this idiot doesn't know a much about the "Buddhist faith". Isn't it supposedly one of the least prostelytizing of faiths in the world? Infact, I think its more of a philosophical approach to life, than hardened religious doctrine.
