Some of you will be devastated to know that the First Church of Tiger Woods is closing its doors due to scandal. While a church being been thrown into chaos due to the misdeeds of clergy is old news, not since Zeus has a deity’s infidelities proved so disheartening to so many.
After several days of evaluation, I have decided to disband the First Church of Tiger Woods (as indicated by the graphics at the top of this web site) and I will not renew the TigerWoodsIsGod domain name when it expires in a couple of months. Any future commentary on this site (which may not happen at all) will be regarding Tiger’s failings in relation to his affair/accident debacle which continues to unfold almost by the hour.
Because the First Church of Tiger Woods has been in existence since late 1996 and this web site has been around since early 2000, you might think that such a decision might be difficult. In this case, it was not. Unfortunately, Tiger Woods has made it all to easy to realize that he is no longer worthy of any special admiration.
O tempora! O mores! O brother!
John Calvin said it best: The mind is a forge of idols. And bad sitcom ideas. And lest we forget the cult in celebrity culture, the First Church of Tiger Woods reminds us, once again, of how easily beguiled middle-aged white men in khakis are, especially when the wife is out somewhere, no doubt buying hats.
But will we learn? Never. Soon Tiger Woods will be replaced by yet another demigod who will steal our hearts and minds and loose change. All I can say is, thank goodness Doodles Weaver is dead.
Or is he?
