Brit Hume's Advise for Tiger Woods

From the Shambhala Sun Newsletter...

What Brit Hume said, and what Buddhists have to say about it.
You may have heard -- FOX News's Brit Hume went on the record as saying that Tiger Woods would best recover from his scandal by ditching Buddhism for Christianity. Suddenly, "Buddhism" is all over the media as it has never been before.
This has led to some of the most vociferous reader comments on our blog, Shambhala SunSpace yet -- click here to join the conversation. We've also followed up with video of Hume defending his statement on FOX News's The O'Reilly Factor, and a roundup of what The Daily Show, Keith Olbermann, and others have had to say about Hume's now-infamous remark.

Momma Zen, the blog of author Karen Maezen Miller really sums it up, and beautifully, "To many of us, faith is little more than a box we check on a questionnaire. Buddhism? Check. Christianity? Check. It’s clear that Woods doesn’t practice the selfless compassion that is at the heart of Buddhism. It’s equally clear that Hume doesn’t practice the selfless compassion that is at the heart of Christianity. Sadly, I call the situation fair and balanced...."

Brit Hume's comments = silliness. Pure idiotic silliness... That's all I have to say about that.
