    Tiger Woods must become Christian to be forgiven

    Buddhism is inferior to Christianity when it comes to forgiveness of sins, according to Fox News pundit Brit Hume. Tiger Woods should turn his back on Buddhism and become a Christian to be forgiven for cheating on his wife, Hume told Fox News' Chris Wallace Sunday.

    "The extent to which he can recover seems to me depends on his faith," said Hume. "He is said to be a Buddhist. I don't think that faith offers the kind of redemption and forgiveness offered by the Christian faith. My message to Tiger is, 'Tiger turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world."

    Woods is the most famous among several American celebrity Buddhists. Richard Gere, Herbie Hancock, Steven Seagal, Leonard Cohen, Tina Turner and Orlando Bloom were recently called the most famous Buddhists in the world. The list goes so far as to argue Tiger Woods is more famous than the Dalai Lama himself.

    Hume's statements are particularly ironic given the recent sex scandals encountered by an assortment of Christian politicians.

    Shut the hell up Brit. Do we really need to make a list of Christians that have infidelity and sex problems?

    What does that have to do with anything?

    I think you have the wrong forum.

    Why? When you're Christian this stuff is ok. I agree. Tiger must become a Christian to be forgiven. He needs to find Jesus.

    Amen.

    Hey bro.

    So I was looking thru the FH directory and saw that the last post in "Politics" was from JCane, someone I consider one of the smarter, more astute and level-headed posters around here. Naturally, curiosity drew me in to check out what he had to say and on which side of the political Maginot Line he stood.

    But now over here in this strange, polarized section (and that's why I like to stay in the main forum and call out anyone who tries to politicize it thru avis or sigs, no matter what side they're on), I thought I'd look at the thread that drew JCane away from ranting about Randy Shannon, and saw your Obama/Imperialist sig. Man, that's pretty harsh and inflamatory!!!!... but I kind of dig it.

    Since I love my graphics so much, I thought I'd go into the Vaark archives to retrieve and throw my own Obama version up here in case you like it so much you'd want to add it to your sig. (Incidentally, a warning I've always tried to impart to my son when he was young: remember, right or wrong, who you consort with says a lot about you!)

    Hope you enjoy it too:

    I think that at the end of the day our religion is our choice. I think that for a human being to say someone will go to Hell if they do not take certain steps is rather ignorant. I do not believe that the Bible tells us the "full story". I believe that it is misinterpreted by as many (or more) "Christians" as it is by non-Christians. I am one of the only people that I know who has read the entire New Testament, yet I know numerous people who preach to everyone like they have read all of the Bible. I have developed my own personal beliefs based on what I have read, not what someone taught me. I would encourage others to do the same. i find it rather disappointing how many people in this world spend so much time preaching to others on what they should do when they themselves act so hypocritically. I am not sure that I have ever met a person who truly understands the spirit of the Bible. Just my two cents.

    It is laughable how many people pass judgment on Tiger Woods yet think they know something about forgiveness.

    Just one question.....


    Your comment....

    ...How do you know you are not doing the exact same thing?

    I completely agree. And it really irritates the hell out of me that this is "how it is." Believe me, I live in the Bible Belt. I have for a looooong time. The belt actually buckles right here in South Carolina. I've seen this exact same stuff go down in my backyard time after time after time and as long as you mention Jesus and all of that default Religion speech, you get a pass. It's ok. You're a man of Christ now and you know better.

    LOL

    The Southern region sells more Pornography than any other region in the country but it's also the most religious. I think the hypocrisy that exists here in the South is ridiculous. I can essentially do whatever I want no matter how vile or wrong it might be and then go find Jesus and I'm an ok guy. I can be a complete drunk ******* for six days in a week as long as I show up and shake hands with the Pastor at the Church on Sunday morning. That's how things are here. I can't believe some of the crap people here in the South do and then show up to Church on Sunday.

    If this was a religous show or channel like the 700 club or something along those lines. Then I wouldn't have a problem with this comment. But this came from a news channel. A number one rated news channel at that. Brit Hume was way out of line and this really wasn't the place for a comment like that. Imagine if Hume was a muslim and said that Tiger should convert to Islam and accept Muhammad as the prophet in order to be forgiven. The fallout would be amazing. This is a news channel. Not a sermon.
