Bryan Fischer Blasts Bill O'Reilly as a 'Pompous, Arrogant Windbag' for Calling Him a 'Bible Banger': VIDEO


The American Family Association's lead spokeshater Bryan Fischer is outraged at Bill O'Reilly for his remarks that anti-gay activists are losing the marriage battle, particularly his designation of them as "Bible thumpers", Right Wing Watch reports.

O'Reilly made the remarks last week during the Supreme Court arguments on marriage and has been taking flack from it from conservative pundits like Laura Ingraham ever since.

Fischer blasted O'Reilly on his radio program.

"The implication is that we're a bunch of neanderthal, redneck, hillbilly Bible-bangers. That is essentially what he is saying we are ... He's insulting us to our face"

  3. "The implication is that we're a bunch of neanderthal, redneck, hillbilly Bible-bangers."

    No, neanderthal's were smarter and really didn't display as much prejudice and bigotry. Rednecks aren't as fastidiously concerned about their appearance, hillbilly's actually make sense and don't seem so scared of other people, and I think the term 'Bible-banger' (when O'Reilly used the term 'Bible-thumper') says SOOOOO much about Mr. Fischer it's hilarious and scary at the same time.

  6. Oh, when conservatives fight amongst themselves... Marriage equality is separating the wheat from the chaff in a big way.

  7. I am not a Bible Thumper. I'm a Bible Wiper. Whenever I stay in a hotel that puts a Gideon-placed Bible or a Mormon bible in my nightstand table, I use them to wipe my ass while in the hotel.

  8. Seeing as Fischer's American Family Association is headquartered in Tupelo, Mississippi, I would suggest that if the shoe fits, he should wear it. Evangelicals in the Deep South may very well be marginalized in the national dialogue about marriage. But then again, evangelicals in the Deep South have been marginalized during past eras of social change, haven't they? Well? Haven't they? They should be used to it after all these centuries.

  9. Who is calling whom a pompous arrogant windbag...go look in the mirror

    Posted by: Mark | Apr 4, 2013 11:19:52 AM

  10. Yay...

    As they more and more demand that others be more like they are...collaborators are turning against each other over expressions of difference.

    And they said it wouldn't last!

  11. This really is the snake eating it's tail. "Pompous windbag"? Really? Bry-Bry have you looked in the dictionary under that phrase? Your picture (unfortunately) is there.

  12. This really pains me but I guess that makes them both correct? For once?
    Billy-O in his assessment of the bible-bangers and Bryanna in her claims on O'Reilly?

  17. The vision of evil right wing haters devouring each other is beyond sublime.

  18. I have told him over and over and over that if he keeps inhaling that hairspray as a morning "pick me up" it's gonna make him go batsh*t. I hate to say I told ya so, but...

  20. a bunch of neanderthal, redneck, hillbilly Bible-bangers....Ummmm, yep. That about says it all.

  21. What's with the fashion combination of all-white with the light pastel baby-pink tie? And the hairdo and makeup? He looks like an alternate for Glinda the Good Witch of the South.

  22. Note to O'Reilly: Its Bible BANGERS, not Bible thumpers.

    Get it right or you will upset them again. They know better than you what they do to the Bible.

  23. Too bad he doesn't give the Bible (whatever version he uses) a good, hard, studied reading instead of just thumping it. He might learn something... Of course on the other hand that would take time away from his fundraising from the flocks of humanoid sheep who watch his drivel.

  24. This in-fighting shows that alliance between fiscal and social conservatives may be weakening. People like Fischer, despites swings in public opinion, will never change.

  25. He's probably more upset BO has never invited an AFA spokesman on his show.
