Brit Hume Explains Advice to Tiger

It is a rare thing in 21st Century America to hear an anchorman, from a major network news channel, urge someone to turn to Christ. This is precisely what Brit Hume did on this show. Hume went on the O’Reilly Factor to explain his initial comments. I wonder whether Hume is Roman Catholic or Protestant. He definitely professes faith in Christ in this interview. From the nature of his comments, and some of his allusions, my guess is that he is Protestant. Do any of you know more about his religious convictions?

  1. Interesting! I wonder if he is a conservative Anglican. It seems like a liberal Anglican wouldn’t care about things like forgiveness and redemption in Christ. I know that Hume lives in the country of Western Virginia. Perhaps he goes to a church near the Shenandoah Valley. There are a lot of Bible believing churches in that area.

  2. Hume was raise nominally Christian. Ten years ago his 29 year old son committed suicide which drove Brit to reexamine his life and faith. Whether or not that was his conversion is unclear but it definitely was a life changing moment. Since that time he has been an unambiguously professing Christian. He moved to a part time commitment to FOX in part to devote more time to his relationship with Christ.
