Don Imus ~ A Bodhisattva For Our Times?

As a response to Brit Hume’s uninformed comments on Buddhism…

HUME: He’s said to be a Buddhist. I don’t think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption that is offered by the Christian faith. So my message to Tiger would be, “Tiger, turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world.”

Oh, Mr. Imus….I have had my issues with you in the past.  I went to Rutgers University and when you commented that our women’s basketball team was a bunch of “Nappy-Headed-Hos” I took some offense for those nice, intelligent ladies that work so hard.  I thought your apology was alittle forced but you took your medicine and I think you learned from your experience.

And now, you back up some Buddhist thought by actually doing some homework and coming out with some good old “Fact-Checking”!  Beautiful!

If the video doesn’t play you can check the video here.

In the words of Imus….

Perhaps fortunately if you are a Buddhist there is a path of recovery and redemption…Nirvana under Buddhism is achieving the state of being freed from greed, hate and delusion its done by observing the rules of the benevolent insights and benevolent 8 fold track….

Well, thank you Imus for tossing some actual Buddhist thought out there.  I’m not too sure on the Noble Eight-fold “track” but I suppose it is just as good as a path!

I really liked the guy laughing in the background who went…

“Oh, Jesus Christ!”
