Brit Hume Still Under the Media Microscope; Unrelenting in His Stand for Christ

“I think it is true that for people who are not Christian; Christianity makes a fairly extravagant claim which is that the Son of God—God made Flesh—came into this world, lived, suffered terribly, and died for the remission of our sins, and then rose again. This is a huge supernatural event, and a lot of people… have a lot of trouble believing it. But if you do purport to believe it, the implications are pretty staggering. And the result is you may end up talking about it.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: Aside from in the public arena, I don’t doubt that Brit Hume is receiving a plethora of private email in response to his courageous remarks. I cannot help but think other high-profile media personalities are watching to see the reaction to what Mr. Hume so openly shared, and that it might make the difference in their decision to be open about their faith. This is an opportunity for the Church to send a word of encouragement to Brit and maybe a “thank you” for saying on national TV what so many of us were thinking.

As Brit Hume continues to receive vitriolic attacks for his recent “spiritual advice” to Tiger Woods, CNS News interviewed Hume, unveiling more revelations on Hume’s unwavering faith.

Rev. Pat Mahoney, a Presbyterian minister and executive director of the Christian Defense Coalition in Washington, D.C., said, “When Brit Hume made the comment, it was not as a newsperson, but it was in a commentary analyst context. He wasn’t reporting on a hard news story. He was sharing ‘opinioned’ fact which many of the news programs encourage their commentators to do.”

Bill Donahue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights in New York City, was quoted as saying that the backlash toward Hume is also due to a secular reaction against sexual morality. “So much of it has to do with sexuality of course, because the cultural elites in our society don’t want to be told ‘no’ by anyone. And when they look at Christianity…they see a religion which essentially speaks to virtues of sexual restraint. And that’s really what’s undergirding this.”
