Brit Hume has ramped up his ongoing crusade to convert Tiger Woods to Christianity and bring him to the Master, if not the Masters.

With Rev. Billy Graham retired and Rev. Rick Warren busy saving his megachurch from budget woes, Hume is January’s headliner evangelist since he slammed Buddhism and issued an altar call to Tiger Woods during a panel discussion on Fox News Sunday.

In an interview with WTOP News radio in Washington, D.C., Hume did more than shrug off critics. He ramped up his pitch of the superiority of Christianity, a religion he says is “uniquely and especially about redemption and forgiveness,” as the one right choice for Woods.

Hume went on to testify on Christ’s sacrificial death and how his “deepest hope” is for Tiger to accept this gift and “be transformed.”

Religious voices have lined up predictably for/against Hume’s televangelist turn. So it remains to see what the comedians will do with the righteous, retired Fox anchor.

Jon Stewart at The Daily Show brought on a panel of faux experts Monday night to offer alternative religions for Woods — including an Avatar spoof that’s out of this world. Next up, Saturday Night Live, perhaps?

But, seriously, should Hume continue his Tiger crusade? Are Jews, Muslims and Hindu, like Buddhists, offended by this pitch? Are you?
