IF YOU CAN FIND A BETTER DEAL, TAKE IT!
January 6, 2010
Someone mentioned Christianity on television recently and liberals reacted with their usual howls of rage and blinking incomprehension.
On a Fox News panel discussing Tiger Woods, Brit Hume said, perfectly accurately:
"The extent to which he can recover, it seems to me, depends on his faith. He is said to be a Buddhist. I don't think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption that is offered by the Christian faith. So, 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."
Hume's words, being 100 percent factually correct, sent liberals into a tizzy of sputtering rage, once again illustrating liberals' copious ignorance of Christianity. (Also illustrating the words of the Bible: "How is it you do not understand me when I speak? It is because you cannot bear to listen to my words." John 8:43.)
In The Washington Post, Tom Shales demanded that Hume apologize, saying he had "dissed about half a billion Buddhists on the planet."
Is Buddhism about forgiveness? Because, if so, Buddhists had better start demanding corrections from every book, magazine article and blog posting ever written on the subject, which claims Buddhists don't believe in God, but try to become their own gods.
I can't imagine that anyone thinks Tiger's problem was that he didn't sufficiently think of himself as a god, especially after that final putt in the Arnold Palmer Invitational last year.
In light of Shales' warning Hume about "what people are saying" about him, I hope Hume's a Christian, but that's not apparent from his inarguable description of Christianity. Of course, given the reaction to his remarks, apparently one has to be a regular New Testament scholar to have so much as a passing familiarity with the basic concept of Christianity.
On MSNBC, David Shuster invoked the "separation of church and television" (a phrase that also doesn't appear in the Constitution), bitterly complaining that Hume had brought up Christianity "out-of-the-blue" on "a political talk show."
Why on earth would Hume mention religion while discussing a public figure who had fallen from grace and was in need of redemption and forgiveness? Boy, talk about coming out of left field!
What religion -- what topic -- induces this sort of babbling idiocy? (If liberals really want to keep people from hearing about God, they should give Him his own show on MSNBC.)
Most perplexing was columnist Dan Savage's indignant accusation that Hume was claiming that Christianity "offers the best deal -- it gives you the get-out-of-adultery-free card that other religions just can't."
In fact, that's exactly what Christianity does. It's the best deal in the universe. (I know it seems strange that a self-described atheist and "radical sex advice columnist faggot" like Savage would miss the central point of Christianity, but there it is.)
God sent his only son to get the crap beaten out of him, die for our sins and rise from the dead. If you believe that, you're in. Your sins are washed away from you -- sins even worse than adultery! -- because of the cross.
"He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross." Colossians 2:14.
Surely you remember the cross, liberals -- the symbol banned by ACLU lawsuits from public property throughout the land?

Christianity is simultaneously the easiest religion in the world and the hardest religion in the world.
Honestly I was afraid for Brit when he said that. I knew there would be trouble.
And no more caring what the world thinks of you -- because, as Jesus warned in a prophecy constantly fulfilled by liberals: The world will hate you.
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.
Ann quotes from the Bible more times in this ONE column than many SERMONS that I've heard over the years do.
You'd almost think that she'e trying to "convert people to Christianity" -- or something! :o)
Did the same Libs, think this was funny?
"We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war." - Ann Coulter
Well written. It is part of the liberals’ goal in politics and media ...... to get rid of God at all junctions. We need people like Brit standing up for what is right and not be ashamed of it.
First, she told us WHAT to do:
Now, with this column, she shows us HOW to do it!
Seriously, Ann makes the case for salvation here much better than many CHURCHES do.Way to go, Ann!
Anns Right ON column is up!
See my post at #12.
I clicked preview and went to put dinner on the fire
Great posts Rondog!
I wore a t shirt with that quote at a Cindy Sheehan rally in Communist Massachusetts. You can see the reaction of the so-called peaceniks to my Ann Coulter t shirt here: Peaceniks Unhinged
Ann Coulter expresses her reaction to my stunt: Talkshow with Ann Coulter The t shirt
is supposed to be real popular, but I haven't seen anyone besides myself wearing it.
D'OH! Way to go, Ann!
Pretty soon priests will be ostracized for mentioning the forbidden Word.
He was a little awkward with his wording.
" ...(A)ll hell breaks loose. wasn't received very well, although it is true in the context.
Would have been better if he said there is power in the Name of Jesus.
Better the way he did it, brings on the dialogue.
