Ann Coulter takes Liberals to Sunday School over Hume critique

When Brit Hume suggested Tiger Woods would be better off choosing Christianity over Buddhism, it was like a shockwave through the liberal beltway. Hume had no right to bring up Christianity on a news program they said. He was showing his bias they said. He was bashing Buddhism, they said.
Coming to his defense today was Ann Coulter:

Hume's words, being 100 percent factually correct, sent liberals into a tizzy of sputtering rage, once again illustrating liberals' copious ignorance of Christianity. (Also illustrating the words of the Bible: "How is it you do not understand me when I speak? It is because you cannot bear to listen to my words." John 8:43.)

Coulter unabashedly defends Hume's logic and the difference between Buddhism, a philosophy, and the simple forgiveness of Chistianity:

Is Buddhism about forgiveness? Because, if so, Buddhists had better start demanding corrections from every book, magazine article and blog posting ever written on the subject, which claims Buddhists don't believe in God, but try to become their own gods.

I can't imagine that anyone thinks Tiger's problem was that he didn't sufficiently think of himself as a god, especially after that final putt in the Arnold Palmer Invitational last year.   

Coulter goes on to give a clear explanation  of Christianity that Billy Graham would be proud of:
In the no-frills, economy-class version, you don't need a church, a teacher, candles, incense, special food or clothing; you don't need to pass a test or prove yourself in any way. All you'll need is a Bible (in order to grasp the amazing deal you're getting) and probably a water baptism, though even that's disputed.

You can be washing the dishes or walking your dog or just sitting there minding your business hating Susan Sarandon and accept that God sent his only son to die for your sins and rise from the dead ... and you're in! 
Coulter and Hume have hit a nerve that drives uberliberals to chasing their tails in frustration, Christianity is real to millions of Americans (myself included), and not some fantasy that "small town folk cling to" with their guns.
In a boiling rage, liberals constantly accuse Christians of being "judgmental." No, we're relieved.

Christianity is also the hardest religion in the world because, if you believe Christ died for your sins and rose from the dead, you have no choice but to give your life entirely over to Him. No more sexual promiscuity, no lying, no cheating, no stealing, no killing inconvenient old people or unborn babies -- no doing what all the other kids do.

And no more caring what the world thinks of you -- because, as Jesus warned in a prophecy constantly fulfilled by liberals: The world will hate you.  

Coulter is not the only defender of Hume's statements. Here are others, refreshing to read:
Carl Cannon  
Jennifer Riley 
Bill Riley 
Cal Thomas
Ross Douthat
Also refreshing to hear was Brit's reaction to the criticism on the O'Reilly Factor:

Don't look for anyone else. they're not there. We have reached the point where being Christian, Conservative, or truthful are no longer acceptable for journalists. Thank you Brit and Ann, for being all three.
