Bill O'Reilly Blows Gasket at Laura Ingraham Over Calling Anti-Gay Activists 'Bible Thumpers': VIDEO


Last week during the marriage equality hearings at SCOTUS, Bill O'Reilly defended gay marriage, saying that "Bible thumpers" are on the losing side:

The compelling argument is on the side of homosexuals. That's where the compelling argument is. 'We're Americans, we just want to be treated like everybody else.' That’s a compelling argument. And to deny that, you’ve got to have a very strong argument on the other side. And the other side hasn’t been able to do anything but thump the Bible."

Last night he had conservative radio host Laura Ingraham on who thinks he's unnecessarily insulting Christians by using the term. O'Reilly strongly disagrees. Strongly.

  1. Now here is a debate I can actually watch. A charismatic guy who calls someone out for using religion to argue against a public policy. Arguing solely with religious arguments is never a successful, long-term strategy because there is very little to no physical evidence to back the arguments up.

  2. Paul Siegler: O'Reilly is NOT a Republican - he is an independent. He showed his true self over the "Bible Thumpers" comment and earlier on claiming the Old Testament is alalgorical - which translates to fiction. He also let the mask come down regarding anger. He is a hothead when he is challenged.

  3. "They've lost the argument against gay marriage because logically they can't win it."

    Okay, here's your logic.

    Tab A fits Slot B.
    Tab A does not fit Tab A. never will.
    Slot B does not fit Slot B, never will.

    Is that simple enough for your little mind?

  4. NO..Bill is 100% wrong, like it or not the Bible is 100% right 100% of the time. People have tried for centuries to disprove it but haven't and can't.

    I had only heard a little of the Bible thumper episode between Laura Ingraham and Bill O'Reilly. I have to agree with O'Reilly's Critics. He was belligerent and arrogant. Sometimes I like that in O'Reilly. This time I see him potentially doing a lot more harm than good. Laura came across as one trying to find a peaceful way to stop a raging bull. Getting to host Bill''s Show may have been enough to make her think twice. On the other hand she is his friend. Yet the Big "O" got it almost all wrong. People who believe the Bible know that thumper word is a tad bit like the "N" word used against blacks. It means NOTHING GOOD. Secondly, Bill Simply doesn't understand why the Bible miust be mentioned. Thanks Dr. Ben Carson for not being afraid to do so. Then, unbeknownst to Bill we also have the logical argument, hands down. I hope he reads my article.
