To be fair and balanced (wocka, wocka, wocka) O’Reilly was merely piggybacking on the assertion made by Imus in the Morning producer Bernard McGuirk that “the war on Christmas is very, very real,” and is fueled by “abortion and the gay-rights agenda.” As you may or may not know, neither of those made the list as one of fundamentalist Christians’ favorite things.
“100% agree,” replied O’Reilly. “I absolutely agree 100% that it’s the diminishment of Christianity is the target and Christmas is the vehicle because the secularists know the opposition to their agenda—legalized drugs is in that as well—comes primarily from the Judeo-Christian traditionalist people.”
While Bill O’Reilly doesn’t even think Christianity is a religion (It’s true!), he’s certainly not going to let the gays ruin his philosophical holiday celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.
