Conservablogger Power Quote

"...But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security..." The Declaration of Independence

Recently, Fox News' Bill O'Reilly made some rather crude remarks concerning Christian Conservatives who maintain the belief that homosexual marriage is wrong.  In a nut-shell he said 'Bible thumping' is the only arguement they  have.
This remark has caused a firestorm of  pushback from viewers who feel both insulted and betrayed.
The following posts were made by viewers on Bill O'Reilly's Facebook page.  This is a small sample of hundreds of comments left by  viewers.

  • Curt Albertson Orielly, You remind me of piers morgan. Two peas in a pod!
  • David Caine Bill, you have switched back to offensive, interuptive, arrogant, and just plain rude to your guests, colleagues, and watching public. You deserve a sharp thump betwen the eyes. "Pride cometh before the fall" and I believe you are about to take one.
  • Daniel Taverne Bill, you are too smart for your own good. You wouldn't use the word *igger to characterize anyone's political position, would you? Then why would you calously use 'Bible thumpers' to do so, attacking Christian conservatives? You, my friend, are a pin head.

John Eden O'Reilly, you were exceptionally rude to Ms Iingraham and to Christians in general. Your puffery should be beneath you but, I'm not sure anything is beneath you anymore. That's the last show of yours I'll be watching.

    • Paula Hegg Bill O'Reilly - I will no longer watch your show....not even for a few minutes while surfing.
    • John De Groot Bill......your are in fact rude, you are so much like Obama....I agree with Steve above, you talk that your a Christian and neither you or the loser in the white house are Christians.

    • Laura Cervantes I'd give you my opinion, but since I'm one of those "bitter clingers", or as you call us, "bible thumpers", I won't waste my time...and that goes for watching your show too.
    • George W. Kragie What is wrong with saying marriage is between a man and a woman? That is what it is. I don't care what people do in their bedroom and I believe gays should have all the rights that marriage creates. But it is a civil union not a marriage. Believe me that does not make me a bible thumper. It just makes me correct.
    • Daniel Taverne George, you are so right.

      (The following paper was inspired by Bill O'Reilly whose TV show favors God Dumpers and not "Bible Thumpers." Quotes are from "Vital Quotations" by Emerson West.)


      ROBERT E. LEE: "In all my perplexities and distresses, the Bible has never failed to give me light and strength." (p. 21)
      DANIEL WEBSTER: "If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper." (p. 21)
      JOHN QUINCY ADAMS: "I have made it a practice for several years to read the Bible through in the course of every year." (p. 22)
      ABRAHAM LINCOLN: "I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man. All the good from the Saviour of the world is communicated to us through this book." (p. 22)
      GEORGE WASHINGTON: "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible." (p. 22)
      HORACE GREELEY: "It is impossible to mentally or socially enslave a Bible-reading people." (p. 23)
      THOMAS JEFFERSON: "I hold the precepts of Jesus as delivered by himself to be the most pure, benevolent, and sublime which have ever been preached to man. I adhere to the principles of the first age; and consider all subsequent innovations as corruptions of this religion, having no foundation in what came from him." (p. 45)
      THOMAS JEFFERSON: "Had the doctrines of Jesus been preached always as pure as they came from his lips, the whole civilized world would by now have become Christian." (p. 47)
      BENJAMIN FRANKLIN: "As to Jesus of Nazareth, my opinion of whom you particularly desire, I think the system of morals and his religion, as he left them to us, is the best the world ever saw, or is likely to see." (p.49)
      WOODROW WILSON: "The sum of the whole matter is this----that our civilization cannot survive materially unless it be redeemed spiritually. It can only be saved by becoming permeated with the spirit of Christ and being made free and happy by practices which spring out of that spirit." (p. 143)
      PATRICK HENRY: "There is a just God who presides over the destiny of nations." (p. 145)
      THOMAS JEFFERSON: "Material abundance without character is the surest way to destruction." (p. 225)
      THOMAS JEFFERSON: "Of all the systems of morality, ancient or modern, which have come under my observation, none appear to me so pure as that of Jesus." (p. 237)
      GEORGE WASHINGTON: "The foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing is a vice so mean and low, that every person of sense and character detests and despises it." (p. 283)
      BENJAMIN FRANKLIN: "Here is my creed. I believe in one God, the Creator of the universe. That he governs it by his Providence. That he ought to be worshiped." (p. 301)
      CALVIN COOLIDGE: "The strength of a country is the strength of its religious convictions." (p. 305)
      GEORGE WASHINGTON: "The perpetuity of this nation depends upon the religious education of the young." (p. 306)

      Prior to our increasingly "Hell-Bound and Happy" era, America's greatest leaders were part of the (gulp) Religious Right! Today we've forgotten God's threat (to abort America) in Psa. 50:22----"Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver." Memo to God Dumpers: In light of Rev. 16:19, can you be sure you won't be in a city that God has already reserved for destruction?
