I just have to say this…

Wow! I just now listened to Brit Hume’s advice to Tiger Woods, that he convert to Christianity because it’s his best bet for redemption. I guess that’s because of all the practice Christians have had at this, what with the Catholic priest scandals, Ted Haggard, Jimmy Swaggert et al. To suggest that Buddhism has failed Woods here, in light of Christian history, is outrageous.

    Mr. Hume’s comments were disrespectful of Buddism and he could have made his point with no mention of Buddism. Furthermore, he chose an inappropriate venue for making his point or mini sermon.

    Lester, absolutely! Can you imagine if this had been reversed? If Woods was a professing Christian and ‘newsman’ had suggested that his best option were to practice Buddhism? Or turn to Allah, God forbid? (that last one sounded kind of funny, didn’t it?})

    I gotta say that I have to agree with you here. Most religionists have a very visible double standard, particularly Christians.

    Thanks for stopping by, King. I checked out your new blog. Looks like it might be worth revisiting. Good luck.

    Hey Debs, sorry I missed you. I don’t get email alerts for return visitors and since this blog is kind of retired I don’t check in too often.

    My navel? Why yes. And I feel that it is just too darn deep. 🙂
