What is the sound of one fat lip flapping?

Don't do something ... just sit there.

Don't do something ... just sit there.

Faux News dingbat Brit Hume has tromped in the Dharma with his big ol’ Bible-beatin’ feet, saying that the errant Tiger Woods should abandon Buddhism and come to Jesus, sparking fits of enraged zazen at sanghas worldwide.

Like Steve Benen at Political Animal, I couldn’t care less about Brit Hume, Tiger Woods, golf and industrial Christianity as promoted by a fake “news” network that is less interested in reality than is The Onion.

But I take a very un-Buddhist glee in watching loudmouthed nitwits step on their own dicks, as long as they aren’t me. But of course, they are.

    Didn’t realized Woods’ problems were caused by his choice of religion. We have SO much evidence folks who claim to be followers of J. Christ do so much good in the world. Who was it that wrote, “I have no problem with Jesus Christ, it’s his followers that scare me.”?

    Wasn’t the last guy to run the country one’a them Christian fellers? Mountain biker, too, if I recall. Fell off a lot but had really good health care. Never did cotton to that feller.

    Never watch FAUX News, and wouldn’t give even a dead rat’s ass about its existence, except for having to deal with people who actually swallow that shit.

    There really should be a “truth in advertising” law about networks claiming to be news outfits when in reality, they are house organs for specific political points of view and report stories as objectively as…well, Brit Hume.

    Patrick is right. One is better off reading The Onion.

    Note to Brit: Tiger’s either a psychopath or a sociopath. Religion’s got nothin’ to do with it.

    I assume Brit’s next gig will be News Director at the 700 Club.

    I don’t think too many folks have a problem with single, male, world champion athletes heterosexually banging the world ablaze. It’s colorful. It’s human. Sometimes it’s encouraged. It’s not particularly unique.

    Trouble comes when one marries, has kids, and takes lots of money from corporate sponsors that pay damn good money to buy an image that isn’t true. (Anybody at Michelob or Radio Shack HQ paying attention?)

    I calculated the actual marital infidelity rates for major religious groups from the 2000-2008 General Social Surveys. Christians of every ilk are poking behind the lines at higher rates than Buddhists…and by the Faux News logic, Tiger should become a Hindu woman…..

    Guess those statistics explain why the Appalachian Trail is such a popular place. There is at least one site out there on the Net suggesting that our politicians and sports heroes need to purchase “semen offsets”.


    Of course if you are a Muslim woman and self-report, you might as well start collecting stones for the masses. Not sure about Hindus.

    I think Ghandi said, “I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians.”
