Evidently, I can still be shocked by the absolute outrageousness uttered under the umbrella of "fair and balanced." I suppose I shouldn't be so shocked, but when someone slights an entire religion as incapable of redemption in comparison to his own, what else could I be?
The founding fathers had the foresight and sense of decency to protect everyone's freedoms, including freedom of speech, so that Brit Hume can utter what he did on Fox Sunday on how Tiger Woods can redeem himself.
As the old saying goes, "only in America." I find myself in an awkward and profoundly sad situation where I must agree with that bawling moron who cried about wanting her America back. I don't know exactly what her America looks and feels like (re: white, right and Christian), but I know this America we are living in feels all wrong to me.
By now, I imagine most people have seen or heard what Brit Hume said. If you haven't here it is.
For the record, not only does Buddhism offer redemption, it offers forgiveness. May your god also forgive you, Mr. Hume. Your ignorance is disgraceful. That voice of authority that you speak with should be silenced. You should be ashamed of yourself, but you probably think you are speaking the gospel.
And that may be the scariest part of all...
