Brit Hume still doesn’t get it
Remember the video I put up of conservative commenter Brit Hume telling Tiger Woods to convert to Christianity? Well, he’s gotten a bit of a bitch slap by the media since then, and he’s playing the victim card now. He claims that if he had told Tiger to convert to Hinduism instead, no one would have made a big deal about it.
“There is a double standard. If I had said, for example, that what Tiger Woods needed to do was become more deeply engaged in his Buddhist faith or to adopt the ideas of Hinduism, which I think would be of great spiritual value to him, I doubt anybody would have said anything.”
Hume is so far up his own ass he can’t even fathom why some people take objection to the fact he basically shit all over Buddhism, claiming the faith was incapable of offering “redemption” the way Christianity does. I’m not the biggest fan of any religion (is that not obvious by now?), but it seems to me anyone claiming expertise in nonsense should stay quiet in regards to the nonsensical beliefs of others. He seems to be surprised that not everyone in the world believes in the same stupid shit he does. Hey Brit, try to broaden your horizons a little; you might be surprised by how unimaginative and pedestrian your own beliefs actually are.
