Televangelist Britt Hume booked for Mitch Pearlstein' s house
Britt Hume, who used to be a TV news guy but now is apparently a well-groomed Christian televangelist -- is there any other kind? -- is coming to Minneapolis to speak at a May fundraiser for the conservative Center of the American Experiment.
Hume's career change happened on Sunday when he took to the airwaves on, yep, you guessed it, Fox News, to try and bring Buddhism-adherent Tiger Woods to Christ. Can we get an amen, brother?
Tiger Woods will recover as a golfer. Whether he can recover as a person, I think is a very open question, and it's a tragic situation with him. He's lost his family. It's not clear to me whether he'll be able to have a relationship with his children. But the Tiger Woods that emerges once the news value dies out of this scandal, the extent to which he can recover, it seems to me, depends on his faith. He's 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, so my message to Tiger would be "Tiger, turn to the Christian faith, and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world.
