OH!!! Brit is in trouble. He said an extremely offensive word: CHRISTIANITY!

trip:

nothing wrong with saying Christianity, but telling someone to change religions like this is a bit too much. how would he like me saying that he should convert to Islam because Christianity doesn't emphasize hospitality to guests enough? does hume even know what spiritual support Buddhism provides people when the going gets rough?

Brit, you're an A-list commentator, and I love
you, but..........this comment is just begging

You're going to be pilloried in Liberal Square
ad infinitum. But, I guess you knew that.

Whether you agree with Brit or not, there is another benefit that he did not mention: There are a number of very committed Christians already on the tour. He would get some much needed support from them if such a change were to take place in his life. That being said, Christianity has a long history of making dramatic changes in people's lives for the better. I'm not aware of any similar stories for Buddhism.

However, I would not expect him to make any big changes in this area of his life. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't expect it.

Regardless, Brit is going to take a lot of heat for speaking his mind. He violated two cannons of liberalism: 1) All religions are the same so therefore one cannot offer something that another doesn't offer (a ridiculous view which is false on it's face) and 2) Suggesting that Christianity is good. (all religions are equal EXCEPT for Christianity in the liberal's eyes)

Anyway... Good for you Brit!

Now we can all wait for the religious persecution to begin all in the name of tolerance of course.

Jeff Blogworthy:

If you believe Christianity possesses ultimate, absolute truth then it is not "to much" to tell someone to change religions. In fact, is is your solemn duty to the extent that you love them. I'm with Brit. Jesus Christ is the exclusive hope for mankind's salvation.

Would I be offended if someone told Tiger to convert to Islam? Hardly. Why should I be? I still assert that Christianity is superior in every respect. Islam is a religion of death that leads straight to hell. Christians convince people to act of their own free will. We do not tell people to 'convert or die.'

Liberals have no problem with religion in general and christianity in specific when they are 'using' it.

Liberals are only offended by religion when it offers no political return.

DC:

I'm a Christian, not a Buddhist, but I know enough to know that Brit Hume probably knows nothing about Buddhism. By engaging in behavior that is destructive to himself and others, Tiger is "violating" a central tenet of Buddhism. See an interesting summary here:

I had the same thought- what does Hume know about Buddism? But your comment somewhat misses his point. I think that all major religions would find Tiger's activities improper to varying degrees. Hume was referring to redemption.

Moralizing, passing judgment (unChristian) and making religious recommendations to a private citizen regarding his indiscretions (not that I condone Tiger's actions, privately) is the stuff best left to the National Enquirer and gossip columnists.

Jim Addison:

I didn't get a judgment from Hume's remarks; we are in fact called as Christians to make "fraternal corrections" with our brothers that they might amend their ways. It is not the recognition or condemnation of sin which makes Christianity different, but rather the redemption freely offered, grace granted without merit by the sacrifice of Christ.

I don't pretend to know enough about Buddhism to opine upon its tenets but in Tiger Woods' case I feel safe in declaring that they don't appear to be working.

I guess the "moderation" part of the faith was lost on Tiger.

AlfalfaSpat:

Hume is just another ultra-conservative with a skewered perspective on the world and the feeling that his religious beliefs are superior. This kind of utterance is no surprise, but disgraceful nonetheless.

Better not to give advice on religion unless asked, even if his intentions were earnest.

Anyway, this discussion has legs:

Jeff Blogworthy:

Proud to be quoted. I guarantee that Brit Hume knows more about Buddhism than you know about Christianity. Your twisting of Brit's quote itself shows your ignorance.

The concept of 'redemption' is uniquely Christian. To redeem means 'to recover by payment.' Christ saves us from our sin by making the payment for our sin Himself. We accept His sacrifice by faith. That is redemption. It is Christian jargon. Buddhists do not seek redemption and it has no correlate in the religion. Therefore your title is correct by definition.

Jeff Blogworthy:

P.S. If yo are going to quote me, I don't mind but you could at least post the brief context. There is no excuse for doing otherwise, other than to focus on what you view as the most salacious aspect. It is dishonest and rather vile -- just the behavior I have come to expect from liberals.

BluesHarper:

Help me here. How does this go? Let him without sin cast the first stone. Tiger's private activities are non of our business and if we learn about them we should shut up. Who are we to point a finger at Tiger? Let's all look in our own closet once. I had no idea that so many Wizbang commenters were so squeaky clean. And none of you made it as Pope yet? How can that be?

Good grief!

We dont care about His stupid business.. He should keep His crude behavior to Himself and not take it out on a fire hydrant. We are commenting on Brit Hume's advice..

Brit's anomalous (for him) pastoral recommendation to a member of the Buddhist community tradition is a likely symptom of job insecurity on Old Sleepy's part.

Probably, they are in a different league than Tiger though. He's just a womanizer like BJ. The 3 You mentioned are more on par with Barry, Alinski and Gore.

WildWillie:

The religion of peace (Islam) kills you if you do not believe.

Brit Hume was more or less telling Tiger that you have already been forgiving all he has to do is acknowledge his sin. Tiger's wife and children are suffering, no doubt but the liberals are fine with that while Brit is concerned and wanted to help the man. Liberals are the ideology of hate. ww
