Brit Hume: Tiger Needs Jesus

Ah the greed of the religious zealot for a high profile, high PR-value convert.  In this video , Brit Hume despicably dangles the offer of public redemption at the cost of religious submission in Tiger’s face (and in the process uses his platform as a news commentator to tell us about the inferiority of the Buddhist faith to the Christian faith and about what a gift to the world Tiger’s testimony on behalf of Jesus would be).  And I’m quite certain that the sentiment that all can be forgiven for Tiger if he makes his next major corporate sponsor Evangelical Christianity is quite common among the proselytizing contingent of Christians.
