Bill O'Reilly Blesses Extremist Anti-Gay Group for Helping Him Fight 'The War on Christmas': VIDEO

Oreilly

On last night's The O'Reilly Factor, Bill O'Reilly warned that 'The War on Christmas' continues this year.

NapierDuring his segment, O'Reilly praised and blessed the extremist anti-gay organization Alliance Defending Freedom for helping him save the holiday, inviting its senior vice president Doug Napier on the show to talk about ADF's legal battles, Equality Matters reports:

What O'Reilly omitted from his praise of the ADF for "defending traditional rights" is that the group is "virulently anti-gay," as the Southern Poverty Law Center put it. ADF has fought against gay rights at every turn and linked homosexuality to pedophilia, even currently working internationally to criminalize homosexuality.

Fox News has a cozy relationship with the ADF -- the network's reports often lend preference to the ADF's discriminatory stances, and Fox figures have even solicited donations to the group.

  1. When someone speaks of "Traditional Values" I can't help but think about the Native Americans and the traditional values of this great country of theirs.

    Don't delude yourself into thinking your values are preferential to anyone else's. Also, don't think that when the international backlash begins for imposing "Traditional Beliefs" on the rest on the world we won't point them in the right direction.

  2. Do we not wonder what Fox gets in return for the advertising they do for these organizations. They are getting paid well, you can trust that. Bill O'Reilly is no more than an infomercial moderator for Fox and the organizations they choose to promote.

  7. Ahhhhhh, the annual one-sided "war on christmas" gag. It's like a holiday tradition now! I can't wait to see Colbert's skit this year.

  8. what is really maddening about the supposed "war" on Christmas is that the folks complaining about it NEVER take into consideration there are other religions, cultures and other celebrations in December...ie..Hanukah,Kwanzaa, etc..NO ONE is stopping YOU from celebrating Christmas in your own way and style except YOURSELF

  9. What exactly is a 'war on christmas'?

  10. *rolls eyes* This "War On Christmas" cr*p is just more stupidity created by Fox News to get the Hover-round Brigade all lathered up and feed the persecution complex of the Religious Wrong.

    No one is stopping them from celebrating Christmas the way they want to, and Obama is not going to send Seal Team 6 to bust down their door if they pray to little baby Jesus.

  11. The War on Christmast, ha, while he blithely ignores Black Friday and Cyber Monday as it exemplifies America's mostly true definition of Christmas; a time we can extend our gluttony and share it with others.

  12. WILL: A made up "boogeyman" to get a certain segments panties in a wad over nothing. You know what the real "war on" was this year? Thanksgiving. We turned it into another shopping day instead of a holiday to spend with family and to give thanks for what "God" has given us. It's funny, you would think Republicans would have been up in arms over the destruction of this TRADITIONAL holiday for FAMILIES? Oh wait, when it comes down to $$$$$ or families we know what side the GOP always chooses. They never practice what they preach to the rest of us.

  13. "@ What exactly is a 'war on christmas'?'

    I'm not sure, Will. I guess if we invaded Antarctica on December 25th. There would be a lot of civilian penguin casulties. But that's war.

  14. It's hard to claim a war on Christmas when radio stations go all-Christmas music November 1st and retail puts up Christmas decorations mid-November, etc, etc.

  15. "War on Christmas" makes as much sense as "Take Back America" which only makes sense if you're an American Indian driving around on a reservation.

    The only ones who can complain about Christmas being under attack are the Pagans who used to have this beautiful Solstice celebration to themselves.

  16. There's no doubt that having a manger with Christ Child, Mary, Joseph and some animals, along with the reciting of biblical passages in live action theater is a statement of political power. Basically, they are saying they have the political power to command the public square and use the power of the state to broadcast their religious messages. This would never happen in a predominately Jewish or Muslim town, but there might be some other holiday or religious message broadcast. So, while there are innocent aspects to the tradition, it is first and foremost a display of political power.

  17. Here we go again, Fox trotting out their tired old meme about how "persecuted" Christians are when a salesclerk wishes them Happy Holidays instead of their preferred salutation.

    The poor things! *rolls eyes*

    Of course it never occurs to them that not ALL customers are Christian and neither are all of the salesclerks. Or that there are multiple holidays (including New Years).

  18. Oh, and a few years ago the Daily Show showed Fox News OWN "Christmas" card that they sent out.

    It said "Happy Holidays."

    They're just whipping up their core audience, getting their Depends in a twist!

  19. Bill, honey, other than in your pathological fantasies, there is no "war on Christmas". There never was. Bill? Sit down and shut up.

  21. He also brought that Waters creep on to giggle and titter at gender reassignment being considered legitimate medical treatment, so that Bill could try to look "tolerant" by saying, "Hold on. We're not laughing at that. We don't make fun of that."

    The old "I'm not saying these people are a joke. Really, I'm NOT saying THESE PEOPLE ARE A JOKE," canard. He's disgusting.

  22. There are indeed individuals and organizations in this country which would try to deny us the Christianity in our culture and history. Your opinion of that religion is irrelevant , the fact is that it's part of our American culture and our mother countries in Europe and the British Isles.

    Many of the same people who blitch and moan about the creche or other decorations on public lawns or buildings, come back from vacations they designed for their cultural enrichment and on which they intend to dine interminably. So they think it's wonderful to see some heathen festival in Botswana, and visit Switzerland while it looks like Gump's windows, but God forbid that there be a creche at the town hall. Screw such people, with Derrick's nasty little bits.

  24. He really should investigate the War on Thanksgiving. Why is that tradition not worth protecting? In 10 years, its going to be just another shopping day...

  25. @ROTUNDRA: We should follow the example of "our mother countries in Europe and the British Isles" and celebrate the cultural aspects of Christmas and other Christian holy days and enjoy the religious myths but recognize that they are no more real than the pagan Greek myths and the
    gods of Olympus. They are all part of our rich cultural heritage but they are beautiful myths and should be celebrated as such.
