The extent to which he can recover seems to me depends on his faith. He is 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. My message to Tiger would, “Tiger, turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world.”
—Brit Hume on Tiger Woods
I’d say “Forgive him for he knows not what of what he speaks” but there’s nothing to forgive and no one to forgive, and I’ve probably said too much already.
