Hume to Woods: Accept Christ


Liberated from the constraints of being a pure newsman, Brit Hume seems to be embracing the latitude the title of “analyst” affords.  Here, he counsels Tiger Woods to convert to Christianity in order to clean up his life:

Hume has opened up about his personal faith in recent years, as a poignant 2008 L.A. Times profile piece explored.

As he prepares to anchor his last presidential campaign, Hume said he’s eager to immerse himself in a more spiritual life after dwelling for so long in the secular. The anchor described himself as a “nominal Christian” until 10 years ago, when his son Sandy committed suicide at age 28.

“I feel like I was really kind of saved when my son died by faith and by the grace of God, and that’s very much on my consciousness,” said Hume, who plans to get more involved in his wife’s Bible study group.
