Esther, you are entitled to your opinion that this kind of salvation is self serving and I respect that. One does not have to do anything to earn salvation because it is freely offered to everyone who wants it. This does not get them out of a pickle as such because they still have to deal with the same human consequences as everyone else when it comes to their everyday life. It just means that God forgives them as if they had never done any wrong.

Sara, you are correct that some Christians would be up in arms if the tables were turned, but not me personally. A person from any non-Christian faith absolutely has the right to talk about what they are offering and I'm fine with that. I have had many well meaning members of other faiths tell me what they can offer and I've never been offended by it.

So I guess I better return Glenn Beck's new book that I bought you for Valentine's Day then, Esther?

Also, say Christians are right and everyone else is wrong. And say Tiger took Brit's advice and switched over to save his soul. Is that really what God wants? It seems very self serving to me if someone screws up and then just goes & embraces God to get out of a pickle. It reminds me of back in the day when the Catholic Church offered (rich) people the chance to buy themselves into heaven.



And Glen Beck is still an ass. Just had to restate that.

But how does Brit Hume know that Buddhism doesn't offer the same "salvation" as Jesus Christ? Is he a Buddhist scholar? I think that was an insulting and ignorant comment, even if he did in the spirit of salvation. I'm sure Buddhists feel they are offered just as much salvation as Christians, and I think it was an insensitive and presumptive statement. Don't you think Christians would be up in arms if the tables were turned, Tiger was a Christian and someone made some dumbass comment about their preferred religion offering more than Jesus Christ? I don't think that would have gone over too well.

Some bad stuff has been said about Tiger Woods in the media and many people have judged him and said nasty things about him. I didn't hear him saying anything bad about Buddism or Tiger Woods in this clip.

Jesus offers forgiveness for anything and an assured place in heaven when the believer dies. There was no mention of Christians being superior to Buddists, just that Jesus offers something different to what the buddist faith offers and that is all. Was he wrong for giving his opinion in a country with a free press and media?

Honestly, I think Brit Hume is a sanctimonious asshat. You can say that he thought that he was helping, as a Christian, but this is exactly why Christians get a bad name, in my opinion. Proselytizing on national TV, then going back and saying that you were not proslystizing is just stupid. Plus, degrading the belief system of millions of people worldwide just makes you look like a jerk. No one cares, Brit Hume!!!





You just said everything I was going to say on the topic, including using the term "sanctimonious asshat."   Spooky.  






In all fairness, "asshat" is a term I got from you Krista

I was also blown away by the insulting comments of Glenn Beck. I mean, it doesn't come as a surprise that he's a total ass, but it's still nauseating to hear what a humongous ass exactly he is.

I saw that the other day and I couldn't believe what I was hearing. This is both very unprofessional and ridiculous. Squeezing personal believes out there on national tv is something I don't think any tv journalist has a right to do, but he even goes further than that with the "holier than thou" attitude. Keep it to yourself!
