I will look past the obvious idiocy and instead play devil’s advocate to Mr. Hume’s argument that Christianity is better than Buddhism in the redemption category.
Buddhism doesn’t have the ability to redeem oneself? Clearly Mr. Hume never got his Buddhism on. Christianity is one and done, son. If you f*ck up, you have an eternal date with a fiery dude and his pitchfork. In Buddhism, you get to keep going until you get it right! It’s like finding the “unlimited lives” code in a videogame. Sure, it might be difficult, but you can beat the level (achieve enlightenment) eventually.
So if an ACME anvil were to fall on Tiger today, resulting in his demise, he’d go straight to Hell following Brit Hume’s logic and supposed beliefs. If that crazy Buddhism thing turns out to be the way, then he’ll get reborn as some lowly creature with the chance to redeem himself.
As to Christianity being the redeeming religion, it doesn’t exactly have a spotless record (as goes the case with most major religions). During the Middle Ages, turning to Christianity would only be redeeming in that people would stop trying to kill you. That’s not to belittle anyone who has turned their life around because of Christianity. But to insinuate that Tiger Woods needs to give his supposed Buddhist faith the cold shoulder and turn to Christianity in order to turn his life around is as absurd as Mr. Hume’s comatose face.
