Brit Hume's Backlash
by Rick Boxx
January, 19, 2010
The press has been buzzing over newscaster, Britt Hume's Tiger Woods comments. Mr. Hume pointed out that Mr. Woods could find healing best through the forgiveness and redemption that comes from the Christian faith.
This courageous expression of his faith in the public square immediately drew a fierce attack. Many comments became so personal against Mr. Hume it's likely they caused deep pain.
Our faith, publicly proclaimed, will bring attacks, but that doesn't mean we should avoid lovingly expressing our beliefs. Jesus taught in Matthew 10:22, "All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved."
If you stand courageously for your faith and find yourself under attack, remember that in the end you will be victorious.
