Peter Wehner’s article at National Review Online is right on target about Brit “Humes’ Gentle Witness“. Wehner rightly points out the double-standard of those who cry foul against Hume’s remarks about Buddhism. He writes,
“When Christopher Hitchens, whom I like and whose company I enjoy, appeared on television shows promoting his book God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, he was far more critical of Christianity than Hume was of Buddhism. Yet I don’t recall the Left saying that those criticisms were inappropriate for public debate. In fact, they weren’t â€” and neither are Hume’s words. Furthermore, those who are unnerved by Hume’s ‘sectarianism’ were untroubled by the aggressive atheism of Hitchens.”
“Brit Hume is rightly recognized as one of the finest journalists of his generation. He also turns out to be a man of deep Christian faith who isn’t afraid to say so. That makes him not only rare, but very nearly unique. And admirable.”
