Recently Brit Hume exhorted Tiger Woods to convert to Christianity to battle the recent problems the latter has encountered. Woods, who claims to be a Buddhist, was faulted by Humes for adopting this religion. Hume said: “I don’t think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption that is offered by the Christian faith.” Further turning his bully pulpit into a mere pulpit, Hume offered: “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.”
It was one of those moments where the satire being manufactured by Saturday Night Live could easily be anticipated. See the full story here.
