Bill O'Reilly 'Outraged' Over Prop 8 SCOTUS Ruling, Doesn't 'Buy' That Gays Have Right to Marry: VIDEO

B_oreilly

Bill O'Reilly is outraged that SCOTUS overturned Prop 8 and he doesn't "buy" that "homosexuals have a right to marry," he tells CBS This Morning:

"I was outraged that the people of California vote for traditional marriage and then the Supreme Court finds a loophole to overturn that vote. That's not what America's all about. I don't buy into the fact that homosexuals have a constitutional right to marry. I don’t believe that. Because if that were true, then pluralists would, then Mormons could have more than one. You know, all of that. But I do respect the fact that gay people want to be treated the same as everybody else. I understand and I respect it, but I think the states should decide."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Bill, the first, fifth, and fourteenth amendments to the Constitution of the United States are hardly "loopholes."

  2. This guy changes his stance so often, you'd think he was Romney. How does anyone actually take him seriously?

  3. Typical, and pathetic.

    and yet, his response makes Gay Republicans go "See? he's on our side! he says he RESPECTS that we want to be treated like everyone else. you intolerant extremist liberals ignore that it should be left to the states, so the states can decide if we should be treated like everybody else or not."

    O'Reilly's Game - pander to, and feed, the bigotry of America's Stupids; then slyly put in some grain of nonsense at the end that pathetic apologists can pretend means "you're a good guy."

    fail.

  4. Bill O'Reilly & Joe Scarborough are virtually the same person. They're both loud-mouthed egomaniacs that try to present themselves as the populist voice of reason.
    They often soften their stances on a few social issues, but when push comes to shove, they're both rightwing reactionaries.

  7. Tokenist BS, populist BS.
    Since when did "Equality" become an issue for the States or even for a majority to decide ?

    "Equality" is a fundamental right; when did rights become subject to an electorate ?
    As for O'Reilly, he's a complete dangerous demagogue fool.

  8. Who is Bill O'Reilly and why should anyone care what he thinks or says?

  9. He has more personalities than Cybil and NONE of them are as intelligent or interesting any of Cybil's.

  10. Slippery slope arguments are weak and lazy. If you simply state that 95% of the populous has the right to get married, and the other 5% don't. THAT is how you explain marriage equality. Bill needs to explain (but obviously can't) why the 95% get to decide the civil rights of the 5%... when the right for gay couples to marry does NOT have any effect on their lives.

  11. Go home Bill O'Reilly, you're drunk.

  12. I don't think y'all realize how lucky we are to have such an excellent authority on marriage. I mean, I for one appreciate being lectured by the very married and very Catholic O'Reilly, who settled a multimillion dollar sexual harassment suit by the coworker he wanted to use a falafel on in the shower.

  13. "Because if that were true, then pluralists would, then Mormons could have more than one."

    Yes, because 1+1=2+1=10+1. He needs to go back to first grade.

  14. Bill O'Reilly is a hate monger. He should not be given a forum by CBS or any other public broadcasting company to spew his hate and discrimination over the airwaves. Complain to CBS and loudly.

  15. Bill thinks his opinion matters. That's funny!

  16. if legalizing marriage for gay couples would lead to legalized polygamy then polygamists would be adamantly supporting marriage equality. they aint. cuz they anti-gay.

  17. Constitutional principles are lost on those who don't know the difference between a loophole, a loofah, and a falafel.

  18. This duplicitous windbag knows better but is afraid of alienating his "bible thumping" viewers.

  19. He's being intellectually dishonest and deliberately crafty. O'Reilly and others continue to cast the Prop 8 outcome as if it were just the personal opinion of one (in their view, biased) individual, instead of the result of a lengthy and well-argued (on our side, anyway) legal proceeding. As the federal judge in the case, Walker's opinion is not equivalent to that of any person on the street. By definition of his role, his take take really does matter more.

    This is all of a piece with the Prop 8 proponents' desperate, last-ditch attempts to challenge the scope of Judge Walker's injunction. They, like O'Reilly, are happy to create an impression that there are some clouds or doubt on the horizon. The more they challenge the outcome, the more evident it is that their actions are driven by hate. They couldn't care less about the chain of command between the governor and county registrars until doing so furthered their own discriminatory interests.

  20. O'Reilly's an idiot, but what's wrong w/ Charlie Rose?

    Why do interviewers never challenge even the simplest baloney, like say... VOTING ON PERSONAL RIGHTS IN A BALLOT BOX?!!!

    If the premise was wrong in the 1st place, what does it matter if tons of people think otherwise?

    My rights are not (should not be) subject to another individual's ability to overcome their own prejudice.

    These people are exhausting.

  21. States's rights, the last refuge of a scoundrel.

  22. so it just dawned on O'Pinion what happened last week? I never watch him (except for the meltdowns that go viral) Has he been making these same quacking noises for the last week?

  23. Marriage is a civil right.

    Is it really that hard to comprehend 5 words?

  24. @TampaZeke, as I once said to a very moody acquaintance, "Could you send out another personality, Sybil? Because nobody like this one."

    O'Reilly is, as usual, full of sh!t.

  25. "Yes, because 1+1=2+1=10+1. He needs to go back to first grade."

    Preferably via reincarnation. Soon.
