By now I’m sure most of you have heard about Brit Hume’s comments regarding Tiger Woods. After listening to what he said, I had a hard time understanding the hysteria.
One person told me that Christians ought not be putting down other religions in order to gain converts (Hume mentions that Buddhism does not offer what Woods needs). We should just emphasize our own strengths. I can see his point, but at the same time Christians do need to contrast our beliefs with others. If our views on God, sin, salvation, and the afterlife are correct, and they contradict what other religions teach, we have to talk about those differences. After all, eternal destiny is at stake.
It seems that Americans have become very uncomfortable talking about religious differences, scared a fist fight will break out if the topic comes up. We have to get over this fear of discussing religion and learn how to have these conversations without personally attacking each other. That’s one of the goals we have for this blog; we strive to avoid personally attacking anybody, although we could always do better.
In any case, you can see Hume’s comments below. Also be sure to check out this article written by Carl Cannon, defending Hume. It’s well done. After seeing the video for yourself, what do you think? Did Hume cross a line?
