get thee behind me, Buddhism!

.
'News' commentator Brit Hume has suggested that pro golfer Tiger Woods would be well advised to turn away from Buddhism and seek forgiveness for his fuck-up-a-firestorm ways in Christianity.

Since a majority of Hume's audience is likely to be Christian-oriented and equally likely to be poorly-informed about Buddhism, I imagine he will be unscathed by any suggestion that he reflect on his own ignorance or that he review the damage he has done to Christianity by making such a suggestion: Ignorant assholes do no good for any faith and yet each faith is largely constructed for ignorant assholes.

Buddhists, if I get it correctly, are tugging their humble forelocks in an effort to remain serene and yet kick Hume's butt. Good! Let them simmer: It'll do them good to think that one through.
