Even Bill O’Reilly is Down with Gay Marriage

Bill O'Reilly

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly claims that gay marriage opponents have a weak argument and are basically a bunch of bible thumpers.

On the O’Reilly Factor last night, the conservative host discussed the ongoing Supreme Court cases regarding same-sex marriage with his colleague Megyn Kelly. Both O’Reilly and Kelly agreed that public poicy should not be determined by religion and arguments against same sex marriage were not very persuasive once the religious aspect was removed. Who knew Bill O’Reilly would come out in favour of gay marriage? Well, he’s not necessarily “in favour”, but he says he doesn’t really care one way or another… I’ll take it!

“I agree with you 100 percent, the compelling argument is on the side of homosexuals,” O’Reilly said. “That is 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.”

“I support civil unions, I always have,” he added. “The gay marriage thing, I don’t feel that strongly about it one way or the other. I think the states should do it.”

Attention gay marriage opponents: when Bill O’Reilly starts to sound more reasonable than you, it’s time to start second-guessing yourself. I’m talking to you, Saxby “I’m not gay so I’m not going to marry one” Chambliss.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a true Bill O’Reilly segment if he didn’t take a jab at the Democrats. He calls both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama “phonies” and “sleazy politicians” for changing their opinions on gay marriage based on public support.
