Brit Hume Speaks Out about Tiger Woods

I am amazed and encouraged by what I saw on National TV. But first, if you haven’t seen the Youtube media piece where Brit Hume tells Tiger Woods to consider Christianity on the Bill O’Reilly show take the time to do that first.

I have mixed feelings about whether someone should tell someone else on national TV to turn to Christianity, it feels like it needs to be a more personal message than that. However, I’m amazed and encouraged that Brit Hume would speak up for the Christian faith on national TV. It seems like it is almost impossible to even utter the name Jesus Christ unless it is a swear word but he did. I hope this kind of debate is embraced by the national media. Not the Tiger Woods part, I’ve heard more than enough about him lately, but the freedom to talk about faith. This is a breakthrough in my opinion. I don’t know that it is a rule and I don’t know who sets the rules but for some time you could talk about any faith but the Christian faith.

I’d like to hear what you think. Is this a good thing? I commend Fox, Brit and Bill O’Reilly for bringing a discussion like this into the open. I hope those of us who are looking for a chance to talk about Christ and the difference He can make will use this opportunity in a sensitive and personal way. My only regret is that it comes at Tiger’s expense. I’d like to hear what you think.
