Brit Hume under fire for encouraging Tiger Woods to convert to Christianity

Fox News veteran anchor, Brit Hume, has come under fire recently by the likes of Jon Stewart among others for encouraging Tiger Woods to convert to Christianity.

Hume defended his statements on the Fox News Channel's O'Reilly Factor and on CBN News. The CBN News interview was especially interesting because he discusses his faith a little more.

Hume told CBN News, " If you think about what Christianity is about it's about sinners and Christianity is a religion for sinners and I think that Tiger Woods has an opportunity here and my prayer would be that he would take it. If you're trying to find the two most explosive words in the English language those two words are Jesus Christ. You start talking about Jesus Christ and I don't mean to make a pun but all hell breaks loose. People rage about this. It's very offensive to those who don't share the faith. It's offensive to some people who claim they do share the faith. This is to be expected and it's been happening to people who proclaim their faith in Christ for as long as anybody can remember. This is part of the deal. You have to be willing to deal with this if you're going to say his name out loud you’re going to hear about it."
