In January on “Fox News Sunday”, News Anchor Brit Hume said that Tiger Woods may recover as a golfer but that if he was going to recover as a man he would need to turn from his Buddhist faith to Christianity. Hume said of Buddhism, ” I don’t think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption that is offered by the Christian faith.” He said that his message to Woods is “Tiger, turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world.”
You can probably imagine the uproar that occurred in the media world. The segment on Fox was a subjective piece in which the anchors were tasked to make predictions or give opinions on what would happen in the future on different topics and one of those topics was professional sports.
Hume is a Christian who is much more open about his faith than he used to be and he attributes that to a tragedy that happened in his life several years ago and to Christian friends who are good witnesses for the Christian faith.
Focus on the family aired a what I think is a great interview with Hume this week in which he talks about his career, his son’s suicide and his faith in Jesus Christ.
