Posted on 04/02/2013 7:58:07 PM PDT by Corporate Democrat
Bill OReilly tonight responded to criticisms from the right over his commentary last week that gay marriage opponents need to do more than just thump the Bible if they want to win the argument. After a Talking Points Memo largely focused on mocking liberal media attempts to gin up a feud between himself and Rush Limbaugh, OReilly brought on Laura Ingraham, who actually told OReilly he was wrong in saying what he said. OReilly was stunned with Ingraham, shouting over her and telling her Im disappointed in you.

Ingraham first surprised OReilly by agreeing that there actually is a feud of sorts going on between him and people like Limbaugh, given Limbaughs harsh condemnation of OReillys commentary. OReilly dismissed the idea he and Limbaugh are enemies, saying I dont care what he says, he can say whatever he wants.
Ingraham agreed with OReilly that gay marriage opponents are not always good at making their case, but said OReilly unnecessarily insulted them. OReilly insisted he made an honest point about gay marriage, and shocked Ingraham by saying that opponents cannot cite the Bible in a policy argument. Ingraham told OReilly he was being disrespectful, which led OReilly to tell Ingraham hes disappointed in her.
OReilly scolded her for criticizing her for his accurate description, saying he doesnt really care whether it was unhelpful or if anyone took offense, it was an accurate and honest attack.

Such theater. These people are actors providing entertainment. They have no beliefs, no principles.
The reason you can’t really follow this story is because BOR rarely makes any sense. He makes it up as he goes along and then defends his point to death.
Watching explosive a**holes isn’t my idea of a good time, thus I do not watch Bill O’Really.
What he gets mad at and yells at make not one iota of difference in my life.
BOR is smug and smarmy. I agree with him a lot but you can see how great he thinks he is in those beady shifty eyes.
Where does Bloviating Bill think we get our moral principals from? The government?
If we abandon the Bible, we are nothing more than a bunch of animals.
Who needs commie ‘RATS when Republicans are ripping one another apart? I saw this and I found it disgraceful. But hey! America is toast anyway. “What difference does it make?!”
BOR was WRONG!
Bill O’Reilly, what a doofus
BOR is always about BOR. BORrrrrrrring. To many, there is no greater authority than the Bible, not BOR.
Yup, he’s a real piece of work...or a piece of something.
I quit watching FOX the first time because of Eyeliner Boy Smith and Whorealdo during their Katrina sobfest.
I tried watching again last year, but quit again after less than a month of O’Blowhard
The end of O’Reilly’s career is nigh.
O’Reilly is a legend in his own mind.
I wonder if Bill finds it hard to breathe with his head up his @$$ all the time.
Bill doesn't like it when they pass on the loofah.
What does this have to do with Ted Baxter?
