Dont You Hate It When People Try To Convert Us...

"Tiger Woods will recover as a golfer. Whether he can recover as a person, I think, is a very open question. And it's a tragic situation," Hume said. "But the Tiger Woods that emerges once the news value dies out of this scandal, the extent to which he can recover, seems to me to depend on his faith. He's said to be a Buddhist. I don't think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption that is offered by the Christian faith. So my message to Tiger would be, 'Tiger, turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world.' "

i read this story on aol news today and i got angry when i read this just because of the fact that this lady is flat out saying christianity is the best religion out there and become one of us and you'll be "saved". do you honestly think he is gonna switch to christianity, he even said himself in this story that he grew up being a buddhist and he just lost track of his faith along the way that doesnt mean he's doomed for life and the only way out is to convert to some religion where they criticize you for everything you do. cause he committed a pretty BIG sin in their eyes. this was kind of a point less story  cause i dont know about anybody else but i dont really care about tiger woods its his life not mine but i felt like i needed to share it with my fellow atheists on here :)

I think you have to forgive christians, or what ever religion, for trying to convert you. After all they all believe they've discovered the secret to eternal happiness. If you honestly believed you could save someone from hell, or just coming back as dung beatle, wouldn't you at least offer? But it does get a little old.

no affense but i am a christian

I completely agree.
