I am Christian who has taught Comparative Religion and attempted to present these religions not from a Christian perspective, but from within each of their own religious worldviews. Having done so, I can affirm that Buddhists do have concept of redemption - but, not surprisingly, it is not like the Christian conception. The Buddhist concept is called nirvana, itself a very misunderstood concept by many Christians. Additionally, since awareness of suffering is one of the Four Noble Truths, then forgiveness is an important dimension of overcoming suffering. Brit Hume could have found this out in about thirty seconds by just Googling it (wonderful thing, those internets).
But you don't need Google if you're saved.
