Rick Santorum: Gay Marriage Discourages Straight Marriage - VIDEO

Santorum

Bill O'Reilly invited Rick Santorum to appear on his show following Grosse Pointe High School's decision this week to re-invite the failed presidential candidate to speak after a cancelation and complaints from Santorum that his "free speech rights" were being trampled on.

Santorum said it was "disappointing" that parents were being made to sign a permission slip for their kids to see him speak "as if there's something that that person could do to harm your child."

After a discussion about how marriage equality is winning because it's being framed as a civil rights issue, O'Reilly asked Santorum if he believed that gay marriage would be "discouraging heterosexual marriage."

Said Santorum:

“Yeah, I believe we would. And because we'd be saying that marriage isn't about children. Isn't about having children. Isn't about raising children. And when we say that, then of course, the consequences are you're probably going to have less children. It's happening as we see it. It's already happening in America. Before this whole gay marriage debate, we really have seen a change in what marriage is in America."

The Hollywood Reporter quizzed FOX News host Bill O'Reilly about his remarks during the Supreme Court marriage hearings that the "compelling argument is on the side of homosexuals" and that "Bible thumpers" are losing.

Asked if he stood by those remarks, O'Reilly said that marriage should be left to the states. Asked if he supports DOMA repeal, O'Reilly said Congress should do whatever they want.

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

Fischer

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"

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

Oreilly_ingraham

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.

Stephen Colbert is beside himself:

"If Bill O'Reilly is not pro-gay marriage and isn't a phony flip-flopper like Bill Clinton, that means back when he said gay marriage was like marrying a goat, he was really telling us that he's pro-goat marriage!"

Lawrence O'Donnell Relishes the Feud Between Limbaugh and O'Reilly on Marriage Equality: VIDEO

Limbaugh_odonnell

Rush Limbaugh took great offense to Bill O'Reilly's characterization this week of anti-gay marriage people as "Bible thumpers" and his evolution on marriage equality, so much so that he mentioned O'Reilly's name for the first time in ages.

Lawrence O'Donnell is eating it up.

"The really funny thing about Bill O'Reilly's conversion on marriage equality is that llke Rush, he hates people who change their minds about marriage equality. He hates Bill Clinton and he hates Barack Obama for doing exactly what Bill O'Reilly has done. In the very same segment last night where Bill O'Reilly announced his change of mind about marriage equality he actually attaced Bill Clinton and Bill O'Reilly for doing exactly the same thing."
