It's good, I think, that we can laugh at stuff like that, even though it really wasn't very funny at the time. I thought Hume demonstrated incredibly poor taste and a remarkable lack of sensitivity and respect. His statement was, in fact, utterly stupid.
And I say that if Christianity offers forgiveness, then why was the church that Ted Haggert worked his butt off to build from nothing taken from him and not given back because of some indiscretions? Some forgiveness, eh?
Don't get me wrong - I have no axe to grind with Christianity or Christians. I just don't think that what Hume said was appropriate, called for or very kind.
