Last night on the O’Reilly Factor, news anchor Brit Hume said he’s retiring starting next Tuesday to focus on his top three priorities. He calls them “The three G’s: God, granddaughters, and golf.” In that order. Nice to hear.
And this recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter clarifies it even further:
THR: WHAT OTHER THINGS WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO IN RETIREMENT?
Hume: I certainly want to pursue my faith more ardently than I have done. I’m not claiming it’s impossible to do when you work in this business. I was kind of a nominal Christian for the longest time. When my son died (by suicide in 1998), I came to Christ in a way that was very meaningful to me. If a person is a Christian and tries to face up to the implications of what you say you believe, it’s a pretty big thing. If you do it part time, you’re not really living it.
He said last night that he plans to study the Bible extensively.
I’ve always like Brit Hume. And I’m glad to hear he seems to have his priorities straight. I’m not sure how many in the news media would give similar answers.
