The Daily Show convened its panel of theological experts on Monday's show, which may or may not have had something to do with Hume defending his comments a day later.
On Bill O'Reilly's fair and balanced television program.

|The Temple of Hume|
Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi finally understands Hume's religious plight:
It drives home how persecuted Christians are when they speak of their faith. I'm a Muslim. I take it for granted that public utterances I make extolling the superiority of my religion pass without notice or even sometimes with praise. I forget how hard it is to be Christian because it's so easy to be Muslim.And that's all Brit was saying.
CNN's Rick Sanchez, also a Christian, admits to not knowing much about Buddhism. But unlike Hume, Sanchez decides against proselytizing and just brings in an expert. Novel idea.
In the end, I think Jon Stewart had it right.
Hume: "I think Jesus Christ offers Tiger Woods something Tiger Woods needs."
Stewart: "Time machine?"
Whatever your religious beliefs, there is no denying that a time machine would fix everything.
