The thing about his comments that gets my goat is he’s assuming that Christianity is somehow superior to Buddhism, or any other religion for that matter. He’s talking from some high horse which most likely does not even exist. His smugness is disgusting, and disrespectful to the many millions of Buddhists in the world.
Brit Hume is a Christian, so he *does* think his religion is superior to Tiger woods’.
I am also curious if the hypocrisy of your own smugness is lost on you. In one sentence, you say the Christian God likely does not exist, thereby disrespecting millions of Christians around the world, then complain hume has disrected millions of Buddhists by doig the same thing you did.
Or can one only safely “disrespect” religions you do not like?
I didn’t say Buddhists are right either. I simply said that for him to elevate one religion above another is ridiculous.
I think no gods of any sort exist, not just the Christian god. If I sounded smug, it wasn’t intentional.
First, I don’t see a sentence in SavageMike’s remarks saying that “the Christian god likely does not exist”.
Second, SavageMike didn’t go on national TV proselytizing about a man whose life happens to be in shambles at the moment, not only criticizing his religious beliefs, but announcing to everyone that they can only obtain forgiveness via a specific religion. Hume did,
and he was out of line - there is no question about that IMO.
Third, Buddhists follow a philosophy, not a deity. And they *are* better, even if only for the fact that they don’t go around sticking their noses in others’ business, especially proselytizing on a public stage.
Fourth, if Hume wants to be a Televangelist he should get a Televangelist show or go on a Televangelist network.
Oh wait…I forgot - he was on Fox news, right? Nevermind that last point….
