    Nutcakes?

    We call them nutcases here.

    Regional differences in wacko labeling. Interesting. 🙂

    I think the thing a lot of people seem to miss in the Brit Hume issue, is that he isn’t saying that Tiger should seek forgiveness through Christ. He’s saying that he should use Christianity to both absolve himself of personal responsibility to feel better, as well as appear to have learned from his mistakes to garner public support. This isn’t even something most Christians would stand for ,if they weren’t told what to believe by people like the writer.

    On a side note, the writer doesn’t seem to realize that in Buddhism Nirvana isn’t just the easing of the guilt. The same things mentioned above could be attained in Buddhism. Lastly she says that Buddha told his disciple that he’d “have to figure out how to gain salvation on his own.” what salvation does she think he was asking for? It would more aptly be described as an end of suffering. How could Buddha know how his disciple or anyone else could end their own suffering? He’s saying it’s a personal thing and everyone is different. Ok rant over, why can’t smart things be in our newspaper?

    “He’s saying that he should use Christianity to both absolve himself of personal responsibility to feel better, as well as appear to have learned from his mistakes to garner public support. ”

    Because that’s what it is normally used for. Pre-parole hearing conversions spring to mind.
