Bill O'Reilly Believes That the 'Gay Rights Agenda' is at the Root of the 'War on Christmas': VIDEO

Oreilly_mcguirk

Bill O'Reilly agreed with Imus in the Morning producer Bernard McGuirk last night after he blamed abortion and gay rights for the so-called 'war on Christmas'.

MCGUIRK: The war on Christmas is very, very real, and if you ask me, in addition to some grouchy misanthropic heathen atheists it has to do - at the root of it - with two things - abortion and the gay rights agenda, because Christianity is against those things. It's subtle but that's why it's so pronounced in recent years.

O'REILLY: Hundred percent agree. I absolutely agree 100% that the diminishment of Christianity is the target and Christmas is the vehicle because the secularists know the opposition to their agenda (legalized drugs is in that as well) comes primarily from the Judeo-Christian traditionalist people.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  6. Blame everything on the gays, give me a break people. I guess gays are now the most powerful thing on earth, lol. What war on xmas? These anti-gay Christians have lost their minds. There are millions of LGBT Christians who will not let the "gays" stop xmas, so now you can rest in peace and you war mongers who want to stir up ignorant people to make trouble, we know who you are, you are the anti-gay Christians who work for hate groups that used people to do your dirty work. Too bad they are not falling for your lies and tricks where you use them like they are slaves, since they are the minorities.

  8. I was really longing for an example...but I couldn't finish the clip. I had to run to my Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and Advent service rehearsals, for the church that I'm a part of, where the director and the majority of the choir are gay, and love christmas...should I go on?

  9. oh please! Without us, Christmas would be a thoroughly dull affair with inedible baked goods, butt-ugly sweaters, and horribly tasteless decorations.

    Bill is really just calling it in, these days, isn't he? Come December 1 he just pushes the 'war on christmas' button and replays his shows from the last five years. BOOORING, Bill, you are being very very BOOORING

  10. Clearly, Bill is having trouble getting A-List pundits to back his "War on XMas" meme. I suppose also he hasn't learned the lesson of Glen Beck, which is that ridiculous levels of persecution complex related diatribes will eventually backfire. Bill, when not scolding someone, spends the remainder of his time complaining that other people are calling him "bad names". He must have more chips on his shoulders than guys who work in marble factories.

  11. From my perch up here in Canada, it seems to me that FOX News (which I don't get -- in BOTH senses of the word) is the root of all evil in these times.

  12. What exactly does this so-called "war on Christmas" consist of?

    People employed by stores being asked to say "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas" to customers because not all customers are Christian and that phrase covers the gamut of holidays. (Fox News' own Christmas cards say "Happy Holidays," or have in the past.) Right Wing Christians are upset because they aren't getting THEIR preferred holiday greeting from employees who may not even be Christian themselves.

    People are protesting religious displays but on PUBLIC property. Individuals and churches can display the baby Jesus doing the hokey-pokey if they want and nobody's stopping them.

    All together now, OH THE HUMANITY!!!!

    Now, O'Reilly *may* have a point, in that some of this backlash may be fueled by the Religious Right trying to force their religious laws on others via bans on same-sex marriage, birth control, and abortion rights. But in that case the REAL issue then is "The War On The Separation Of Church And State" and the Right's failure to respect it.

    And payback, as has long been known, is a b*tch.

  14. how wonderful. bill and friends telling their viewers at home that their gay children are ruining Christmas, Christianity, and the American Way of Life. ho ho ho.

    that's the sad part. being a fox news viewer and anti-gay "Christian" doesn't mean you're immune from having gay children or family members. and these bigots are furthering a culture of prejudice and youth suicide. merry f***ing Christmas, indeed.

    each one has blood on their hands.

  15. as IF we live in a world where people don't want to "expose their children to gay people" but are fine with exposing their children to neanderthalian Black Friday riots.


    oh, and what about the Christian (and other) religious denominations that wholly support LGBT marriages?

  16. Well, he's saying nothing we didn't know in regards to what they think of us. This is what they truly believe. They believe we, and social-liberals in general, are the enemy of Christianity, and the enemy of America.

    It's comments like this that are continuing to drive conservatives completely away from the mainstream.

  17. The only ones involved with the so-called "War on Christmas" are the far right Christianist zealots.

  18. excuse me Bill...whom is doing the whining????

  19. When you're losing big time in the battle to maintain your inherited position as the "king of the pack"...you get desperate. Watch them trip over each other...it's like Walmart on Black Friday.
    However, I'm putting my tree up this weekend...baking fruit cakes with lots of rum...and having my nails done just in time for our annual Christmas dinner party. My husband and I love this time of year...we fly our kids and some of the grandkids in with that "gay disposable income". It's a wonderful celebration of love & family. All aboard !

  20. Bill and Faux News declared a war on INTELLIGENCE and LOGIC a long time ago and they continue to lose that war daily!
    Time for them to pack it up and disappear already. :)
    Happy Friday.

  21. Diminishing religious belief makes us misanthropes? Isn't it more misanthropic to believe that the religious have a monopoly on morality, and that in the lack of faith humans can't stand one another. These people only provide more evidence that blind belief and dogmatic resistance to change will make you spout and do stupid things in arrogance.

    A book revealing phony outrage by selling phony outrage? They should be warping reality. Oh wait, their reality already is.

  23. Um, yeah, Bill, sure. Uh, are you talking about the pagan-inspired Yuletide kind of Christmas? Or, are you talking about the, um, Christian kind of Christmas? Got any proof, Bill, that we gays are the reason why there's so many "attacks" on Christmas? I mean, I know you're a blowhard extraordinaire and all, but proof of your allegations would be kind of nice. What's that, Bill? You're just sayin? Oh, OK. Well, thanks for those insights, Bill.

    Now, please sit down and shut up.

  24. Gays anti Christmas ?

    Ha ha ha; tell that to my gay friends....with their celebrations, gift giving, decorations, trees, lights;
    then tell that to all those beautiful and brave, generous and loving gay Dads, who have their own kids and adopt kids into new homes with love and affection and attention.
    Their homes will rejoice in the festivities of Christmas.

    There are ten of us celebrating Christmas together this year with food gifts from everywhere......all gay boys, Bill, all together, all very happy.
    So Dear Bill, F.U.

    But I do agree that we gays cause earthquakes and we might have a hand in the Mayan 'fin de siecle' also.

    Keep jerking off, Bill.

  25. Just out of curiosity, how long did they have to rehearse before the three of them could spout all that nonsense with a straight face?
