Brit Hume today advised Tiger Woods to immediately convert from Buddhism to Christianity to, in his words, experience “a full recovery.”
“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.”
Yep, it doesn’t matter what you’ve done. Cheat on your wife, even kill her if you like, rape children, steal from your friends. Just say the right words, eat the right cracker, drink the right wine in the right church, and all is forgiven. You might even get a pardon from a pandering xtian governor, if you’re lucky.
Doesn’t matter what kind of person you have been, or how badly you have treated your fellow humans, all is forgiven with just a few words, and you get heaven too. How can you miss! Live your life any way you wish, and just like the family-murdering Constintine, just convert and be “born again” before you die, and you have nothing to worry about.
What bothers me about this, I guess, is that the Christians try to convince the world that there are no morals or ethics without a god, and not just any god either – their specific god! They preach this in spite of the fact there is NO requirement for a Christian to act in a responsible manner towards other people, not when a simple word or two is sufficient to obtain absolution. What a deal! Sin all you want, just say the magic words before you die, and all is forgiven and you can live happily ever after with your lord and savior.
