Brit Hume is fortunate that he doesn’t know a damn thing about Buddhism

Brit Hume chimed in on Tiger Woods’ recent marital issues by giving us this bit of ignorance that only Fox News could provide:

…Whether he can recover as a person depends on “his faith. He’s said to be a Buddhist. I don’t think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redeption 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.”

I love this Hume twat… like Tiger Woods needs to “recover.” Recover from what? Having a cock n’ balls? And what the hell does believing in a fairy tale about a magic space zombie jew have to do with any of this? Its fuckheads like Brit Hume that drove me away from the MSZJ eating in the first place. Hearing crap like that is why I say that I really don’t care what my kids do with their lives, as long as they never become christians.

Not that there aren’t some marvelous, and beloved christians in my circle of friends. In fact, I know many christians who practice their religion with a true degree of purity and compassion — which essentially makes them Buddhists. They pray for me, and I appreciate it when they do. But, christianity seems to have this inherent flaw in it that it produces a surplus of assholes like Hume.

    No way is Christianity better than Buddhism. Hasn’t Brit Hume watched Kill Bill?

    Might want to rethink that.

    After all, per http://www.nytimes.com/2006/03/31/health/31pray.html : “Prayers offered by strangers had no effect on the recovery of people who were undergoing heart surgery, a large and long-awaited study has found. And patients who knew they were being prayed for had a higher rate of post-operative complications like abnormal heart rhythms, perhaps because of the expectations the prayers created.”

    • Well, sure… if someone prays for you and you expect magic to occur, you’re likely to suffer.

      But, when someone prays for me, I know that it is just voodoo…. however, I merely see it as an expression of a member of a primitive culture doing something thoughtful and nice for me.

    To be fair, he’s got a super hot wife, so unless she’s a frigid bitch, he’s got no real excuse for sticking his dick in some other chick. Except that they were probably throwing themselves all over him, and getting him wasted. So, really, who’s at fault here? Tiger’s dick? The Alcohol? The sluts? And while Jesus might forgive him, his wife won’t, so becoming Christian doesn’t seem like a major fix for his problems.

    What he really needs now is a divorce, and a few weeks in Vegas followed by a world tour. Maybe he should become a roadie with Iron Maiden for a while – just until this whole thing blows over.

      Girlfriend – you miss the strategy. Tiger converts, claims he now sees the light. Mrs. Tigersen gets on the evangelical bandwagon and is coerced into giving forgiveness (per the MSZJ protocol). Tiger goes back to “sinning” and asking for forgiveness when caught.

      Buddhists have to wait too long for the fix from the PR perspective.

  4. If you meet Brit Hume on the road….

  5. Will Flood says:

    Buddhism incorporates precepts which encourage responsible ethical and sexual behaviors as part of the individual’s karma development, since to behave irresponsibly towards one’s self and others only prolongs suffering for everyone. Buddhists must remain constantly aware and awake and in control of themselves in order to reduce suffering, which is much harder than wandering into a confessional with a hangover and herpes, spilling your guts and receiving instant absolution. Time and time again. Mr. Woods would be better served by paying more attention to his efforts in living deliberately and with skill as a truly free human being than to give up Buddhism.

    I like Buddhism, it’s like Secular Humanism that’s been around longer and with fancy clothes. Oh, and the statues. They have some kickass statues hanging around. But then, hey, we have a statue of Franklin and Jefferson, so we’re not at a total loss.

  7. Yeshe Chenden says:

    Brit Hume is obviously unaware of the fact that he and Tiger were also lovers in a previous life and, well the rest is between the two of them ~ still. Work it out fellas.

  8. Dan Steinberg says:

    If Buddhism doesn’t offer it, then for sure WalMart does. I’m sorry I didn’t read this before shopping. I could have picked up a case for poor Tiger.
