Bill O’Reilly: Duck Dynasty’s Robertson wrong to condemn gays, lesbians

Interesting perspective on the manufactured controversy over comments made by “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson equating homosexuality to bestiality, among other hateful comments from, of all sources, Fox News Channel ratings kingpin Bill O’Reilly.

tv-clipartHomosexual Americans should not be demonized just like devout Christians should not be demonized, and people who have strong beliefs should understand the big picture. Portraying gay Americans as sinners gives license to harm them. It’s insulting and demeaning,” O’Reilly said.

So it’s morally wrong, according to O’Reilly, the Fox News moneymaker, to ignite this war on homosexuality.

It’s also politically wrong.

“This controversy is helping anti-Christian forces in the USA,” O’Reilly said. “The secular progressive movement seizes upon stuff like this to portray Christians as cruel fanatics. People only interested in imposing their point of view on the nation.”

  • Bill O’Reilly is a favorite target of progressives, but he is a relative voice of reason on Fox News. Big of him to take this stand.

    • Dana F. Davis

      I’d like to know what prompted such statements. And also why Drew Magary chose to publish them. O’ Reilly’s wrong, I see this as a major coup for free speech advocates. The real question, though, I suppose, is whether the free speech advocate has now morphed under pressure from the Left into a free speech “activist.”

      • Drew Magary’s motivation is obvious. He did an interview with a celebrity subject, who was outspoken in the interview on his views on homosexuality and race. There’s nothing “gotcha” about the story. Phil Robertson is outspoken, as is his right as an American citizen. Other American citizens who disagree with his statements have the same right to be outspoken with their views, as does A&E in responding in the manner that it did. This whole episode is America at its best, in that sense.

  • Al Cinamon

    O’Reilly will be the new darling of the left. Maybe he’s looking to be one of the girls on The View,

    • Greta Van Susteren, too. She took Sarah Palin to task for talking about how the left was unfairly criticizing Robertson for what he said after admitting that she hadn’t read his comments to even know what he’d said. Seems like the Fox News talking heads are straying from the talking points on this one.
