Fox's Brit Hume to Tiger Woods: "Become a Christian"

Our attorney, James Bopp, Jr., sent me an email last week, alerting us that the US Supreme Court will decide on January 15 whether to take our case in the matter of protecting and sealing the names of the people who signed the R-71 petitions.

As you know, we have said the threats made toward those who signed the petitions, is a First Amendment issue. The Washington Secretary of State and Attorney General are saying it is not and are seeking to have the names made public.

Deputy Solicitor General William Collins from Attorney General McKenna's office has urged the US Supreme Court not to take our case, saying that our First Amendment challenge is a new challenge, that several other states allow people to acquire names from petitions and there is no national question involved.

The Court should decide on the 15th or within a day or two following, as to what they intend to do.

We will keep you posted .

Fox's Brit Hume to Tiger Woods: "Become a Christian"

There are many ways to start the new year. Fox News' Brit Hume started the new year with a personal, spiritual message for Tiger Woods.

In a conversation on Fox News Sunday, yesterday, responding to the question of whether Tiger Woods could return to golf, Hume said he most likely would return and recover as a golfer.

But Hume continued, "It remains to be seen whether he will recover as a person."

"He's said to be a Buddhist," Hume said, "I don't think that faith offers...."

I have included the text of his comments and the 31 second video clip of his comments.

  1. Exactly how is a message delivered on a national TV show, where Hume had no idea if Woods was even watching, a "personal" message? Seems to me that if Hume really cared about Woods spirituality and not just scoring points with the Christianist right, he would have address his remarks to Wood privately and personally.

  2. Gary, thank you for sharing this with us. Wow. God bless Brit.

  3. Brit Hume's invitation is good for all of us. I don't know much about Buddha except that he was a teacher and philosopher who lived around 500 B.C.

    Every knee will bow to Jesus, so maybe Buddha has already done that. He lived at a time when Jesus was in the world but the world did not know him. Those who lived in the genuine fear of God were taught by him as he was in God and God was in him, though they didn't know him by the name "Jesus". He was in the spirit of wisdom, the spirit of God. When Jesus preached, wise men knew his voice. His sheep knew him. When they heard Jesus, they knew they heard the voice of God. There was a witness in their heart.

    Acts 4:11,12
    This is the stone which was set at naught of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.
    Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

    Acts 3:17-19
    And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers.
    But those things, which God before
    had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.
    Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;

    This Jesus, God sends to us and we will see him again when he comes again, in power and great glory.

    As a Christian, I have a little light and a lot of darkness, for I know nothing yet as I one day will know. I suppose I am a lot as Buddha was.

  4. I admire Hume's guts to say what he said but I wish he had been more to the point. It is not that Tiger Woods needs to be "converted to the Christian faith" but he needs to enter into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Perhaps I am splitting hairs here but it isn't religion that transforms people it is a relationship with the living God through faith in his resurrected son, Jesus. Too many Americans have the right religion but not the right relationship.
