Brit Hume’s Promotion Of Christianity For Tiger Woods Totally Inappropriate!

Fox News analyst Brit Hume said something totally inappropriate on the Fox News Channel show, “Fox News Sunday”, hosted by Chris Wallace, this past Sunday.

He suggested that Tiger Woods, the golfer involved in a major sex scandal, should switch his religion from his mother’s Buddhism to Christianity, as he would have the opportunity to confess his sins.

According to Mr. Hume, that would be a wonderful way to make his peace with God for his sins, and would be an inspiration to millions of people across the world.

It is none of Brit Hume’s business to be giving religious advice to any of those watching Fox News Sunday, to Tiger Woods, or to anyone else.

Television news shows are NOT the proper venue to promote one’s personal religious views. Nor is it the place to claim that one’s religion is somehow “superior” to any other.

If anything, it is Judaism, the religion that Jesus Christ never gave up in his lifetime, that should be recommended if one is thinking about atonement for sins, as Jews celebrate Yom Kippur, which is much more solemn than the weekly confession concept found in Christianity. But even that would not be appropriate to recommend on a television show, which is not specifically dedicated to religion.

Brit Hume’s religious beliefs are his personal business, and not proper to advertise or promote on a news show. He needs to apologize for inappropriate, insensitive behavior.

Better still, since he has officially retired, the best thing is to stop being a guest analyst, and go off and pray as much as he wishes in his chosen beliefs and leave us, the American people and Tiger Woods too, ALONE! 🙁

    I finally made it to your website.

    I agree with you 100% on Brit Hume’s unbelievably inappropriate behavior. The only thing I would have a slight beef with is the part about Judaism being the religion of choice if looking for atonement. It’s is not because you are wrong necessarily but because all three dessert dogmas Judaism, Christianity, And Islam need to become way less violent and practice what they preach instead of using and trying to destroy each other before there followers can ever consider themselves more riotous than other religion or. Eastern religions seem to be less prone to war and more accepting to other ways of life than the ones of the Middle East and the west. Other than what i mentioned i would have to say i agree with you 100%.

    In my soncere opinion, Hume needs to take a walk. As a person with a strong Christian background it seems to me as if he is saying sin is more acceptable within Christianity and that if someone is unable to keep up with the universally accepted ideas of sin then they should “settle” for Christianity. It especially saddens me that Woods has to not only deal with this but under the scrutiny of the public eye.
