Color Me Livid

Here's one for the books:

On "Fox News Sunday," Hume — the former leader of Fox News' political reporting and host of "Special Report" who now serves as an analyst for the network — said that [Tiger] Woods' recovery "depends on his faith."

"The extent to which he can recover seems to me depends on his faith," Hume said. "He is said to be a Buddhist. I don't think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption that is offered by the Christian faith. My message to Tiger would, 'Tiger, turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world."

Holy crap, Batman. I'm not exactly sure you can call Tiger Woods a Buddhist, exactly, since as far as I know he simply professes to practice meditation. But to suggest that the religion that spawned Jimmy Swaggert, John Edwards, et al to be the one best suited to redeem moral sleaze....well, really folks. You can't be serious.

Seriously Brett. Buddhists aren't perfect people, but on a cosmic sinfulness scale, I would put my Buddhists against your Christians any old day of the week.
