We all know there is a War on Christmas – in the minds of pundits at Fox News. Bill O’Reilly tells us that there is indeed a war. Yes, they have suffered through a war torn path of destruction by gay people.
O’Reilly and Bernard McGuirk, executive producer of Imus in the Morning, declared (out loud) that they actually believe there’s a war against Christianity.
MCGUIRK: The war on Christmas is very, very real, and if you ask me, in addition to some grouchy misanthropic heathen atheists it has to do — at the root of it — with two things — abortion and the gay rights agenda, because Christianity is against those things. It’s subtle but that’s why it’s so pronounced in recent years.
O’REILLY: Hundred percent agree. I absolutely agree 100 percent that 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.
All of my FABULOUS gay friends are decorating their treess, some perhaps adding extra tinsel, and all of them are laughing in Bill O’Reilly’s face. I can’t think of one gay friend that doesn’t have their Christmas tree up.
Think Progress writes, “McGuirk’s pronouncement that all of Christianity opposes a woman’s right to an abortion or a gay couple’s right to raise a family ignores the fact that many women and gay people are Christian.”
It’s true. I support the right to choose. I support a gay couple’s right to have a family. I am a woman. I am a progressive. I am a Christian. Clutch your pearls Bill. We don’t all fit neatly into your Christian dogma. In fact, I do not have a Christmas tree, so I must be a Satanist in O’Reilly’s eyes. Oh crap.
Comment of the day on YouTube:
Ok, the WAR ON CHRISTMAS is the queers fault? Dude, I’m gay and have 3 Christmas trees. Who the hell do you think is buying all these decorations? My house looks like Rudolph pooped Christmas cheer all over my house. Christmas rocks! Stop blaming the gays for all your problems.
