God Bless Brit Hume

7 Jan

It’s a sad world indeed when a man who shares his faith is criticized more than a man who broke his wedding vows multiple times with a collection of prostitutes and porn stars.

Fox News Analyst Brit Hume came under such fire when he said this about Tiger Woods.

Hume takes the opportunity to explain his comments in Christianity Today.

I ought to be willing to do that. I don’t want to practice a faith that I’m afraid to proclaim. I don’t want to be a closet Christian. I’m not going to stand on the street with a megaphone. My principal responsibility at Fox News isn’t to proselytize. But occasionally a mention of faith seems to me to be appropriate. When those occasions come, I’ll do it.

God bless you Mr. Hume.

And no one can put things in perspective quite like Ann Coulter: If You Can Find a Better Deal, Take It!

With Christianity, your sins are forgiven, the slate is wiped clean and your eternal life is guaranteed through nothing you did yourself, even though you don’t deserve it. It’s the best deal in the universe.

It’s quite simple really, Jesus said:

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
~ John 14:16

Fact is, Hume was right. It may not have been the most politically correct thing to say, or the most professionally correct. And, as Jesus himself warned, Hume’s comments stirred up a lot of sentiment against him.

He’s still right. Hume could have issued some warm fuzzy, snuggy of your own personal demonination statement that wouldn’t have ruffled any feathers. But it wouldn’t have been the truth.

And here’s the thing for believers. We know times will be hard. We know people will hate us. But we’ve also read the rest of the book.

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
~ Philippians 2:9-11

    As a Christian, I find Hume to be a hypocritical idiot. I’d rather he shut his mouth, report the news, and stop making us looks bad.

    I don’t think Brit is making anyone “look bad.” The majority of people upset by this are people pre-disposed to hate Christianity anyway. You should read the whole interview at Christianity Today. Brit Hume is neither a hypocrite nor an idiot.

    Davies, I am going to take a pot shot at you right off the bat, and just to be a jerk I am calling this one to be a home run.

    Hypocritical idiot? What evidence, what facts do you have to support this. Is it a matter of an opinion, or is it the fact that you sir have no idea what you are talking about. Why would you rather he shut his mouth, isn’t the point of being a christian to be able to spread the word of Jesus Christ.

    No sir, indeed I am going to call you out, in fact I am willing to bet you are neither a christian, or intelligent. Now to back up my facts, I shall refer to yout post. No proof, saying a christian makes you look bad. No sir, it is you who makes us look bad!

    Oh let me see, Christians can’t make an effective truthful statement about other religions, we can be mocked and made fun of. You make fun of allah and we are talking about jihad.

    This is the tallest man I have ever seen sitting on a news chair. Your strength and courage are refreshing in a day when most Christians accept what the mainstream say we should behave like. Dont call sin sin, you have to call it a lifestyle. God allows for choice of actions, but there is also consequences. If we as people did not believe that we would have no prisons or sense of justice. Brit, You will not experience a physical crucifixion, but as you are berated in the press and throughout the caves of society let me applaud you for standing firm in your belief, and I will always stand beside our collective right to free speech. If they were only mad because you chose the media to voice a personal conviction then we should agree isn’t that what all journalists do?
