Telling Tiger To Convert Just Ain’t Kosher

Up until now, I’ve avoided writing about Tiger Woods’ serial philandering. But Brit Hume’s outrageous comments leave me no choice. According to Hume, if Tiger Woods wants forgiveness, he must convert from Buddhism to Christianity:

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.”

You can watch the charming video over at Crooks and Liars.

And that brings me to my latest limerick:

Telling Tiger To Convert Just Ain’t Kosher
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Tiger Woods’ rep has really been hurt.
Hume’s solution? The guy should convert:
Be a Buddhist no more —
Enter Christian faith’s door.
Get redemption for chasing each skirt.

    Brit Hume to Tiger Woods: If you only knew the power of the dark side!

    It’s got a nice beat…and you can dance to it. I can’t help but wonder, though…can you putt to it?? ;-)

    I think Tiger seeks forgiveness from his Mom, wife and kids for the most part. Or maybe none of them. But if Brit Hume thinks Christ will forgive him for selling out his ethics to run Faux Snooze, that’d explain why he hugs it close to the void where his soul was.

    I’d rather take ethics lessons from lesser demons than Hume.

    I have a simple question for Brit Hume, and his employer may want to contemplate it as well. Brit, how can we ever trust your journalistic objectivity again if you, in America, preach the Christian gospel to and about a subject on whom you’re doing a story? Before, you were merely offensive; now, you’re incompetent, not to mention directly involved in the story yourself.

    Does Hume belong on the payroll of any major “news” organization, even Fox?

    Perhaps Hume could go work for the RNC. Maybe even replace Steele.
