Gay Marriage: Bill O´Reilly
Misses the Point

American Thinker, by Monte Kuligowski

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 4/8/2013 10:57:12 AM

During the highly publicized exchange between Bill O´Reilly and Laura Ingraham on gay marriage, O´Reilly made this statement: "There are Bible thumpers, and all they do is say, ´I object to gay marriage because God objects to it.´ You don´t win a policy debate in America with that." Really? Before central control out of Washington was imposed in 2003, policy arguments for criminalizing homosexual acts were won explicitly "with that." And because of "that," the idea of gay marriage has been unthinkable throughout the history of the American nation.

It´s pretty amusing watching this all play out. The gay ´activist´ scenario basically antagonized the APA into removing ´gay´ from the DSM-II in the early 70´s - and pretty much every ´advance´ since then has resulted from the same thing - gay activists antagonizing people who don´t believe as they do.

And O´Reilly does miss the point - perhaps he should inform his viewers what the ´gay lobby´ has done to American children over the last dozen years of preaching ´Normal and Healthy!´ to captive grammar school kids, indoctrinating them with garbage advice - to the tune of (currently) 1000 new cases of HIV in 12-21 year old males *monthly* - the only demographic where HIV is still on the upswing.

We´re basically just watching mental health issues ´normalized´ in this country at this point.

BOR misses the point by a mile. Has he not considered why a society should care about the sexual practices of its members, other than for religious reasons? What is as stake for a society to encourage and certify heterosexual unions, as has been the case since ancient times? Is it not to ensure it can continue to exist by producing new healthy and productive members, and stable social units (families). This is why all societies in the past (including pagan ones, which did not eschew homosexual relations) promoted and protected heterosexual marriage as the cornerstone of their social structure. Surely O´Reilly as a former history teacher should know this.

Guess Mr. Bill never heard of Martin Luther King, Jr., who marched and demanded equality for blacks while referring to and quoting what God and his justice as presented in His word, the Bible, demand. In other words, our public policy should be based on unchanging truths and righteousness, not on the whims of the day. I can´t imagine a situation where doing what is right will counter what the Bible says! In this case, it affirms that same sex relations are wrong.

Does the institution of marriage, which evolved from the dawn of man, in order to socialize children and self regulate sexual activity, pre-date its religious formalities? Yes or no. If yes, then the institution can be firmly defended as a bedrock of culture and civilization; w/o the need for quotations from the Bible, as worthy as they are. Formal religion, due to multiple self inflicted woulds, is held in low esteem by many. Using it to make the case against homosexual ´marriage´ is a weak reed and a mistake. And O´Reilly is indeed a moron.

The Bible set out the laws for living,and there were ten commandments as well as numerous other cautionary statements and illustrations by metaphor on how to do this. The dangers of deliberately ignoring God´s laws are all around us unfortunately as man sets himself over God. Marriage is primarily for the procreation of the species and as such should be protected. Sinfully ignoring this brings a terrible result, the physical body breaks down to match the break down of moral laws.

This silly little man misses the point. America is NOT a theocracy. If you want that move to Iran or Saudi Arabia where nobody can *violate* what their good book says.

This is America where people are free to do what others consider sin. The Catholic believe that divorce and adultey and pre-marital sex are sins - but people are free to do them.

This argument was lost a long time ago. O Reilly is right. People who want to force others to live by their beliefs or their religion or their morality are immoral! It is about freedom in America and those who are attempting to abolish free will are the true sinners here.

Is O´Reilly homosexual or bisexual? We learned a few years ago he likes to talk dirty on the telephone, but his opposition to what Laura Ingraham said makes me wonder if he is intimately familiar with the practices of homosexuals.

What if everything has a moral context? What if wisdom and discernment and every word in every sentence, in order to make sense, have a moral context? What if sanity itself has a moral context? So that when you try to look "fair" and "amoral" and think you can look out for everyone, including the rich bubble of the hour, your circle of "strange" and narcissist luftmenschen who do not have a controlling legal authority and do not want one -- maybe it is your side that is one dimensional. Is it better to be fair, or to be stupid? Is their a moral context for "stupid" vs. "ignorant"? "Stupid" is a stubborn schlimiel who will finally ruin a country by championing 50 equal and polyamorous internationalist moralities under one big tent, unprincipled social contract, for fairness sake -- then realize he will have to get the folks to champion the need for something like sharia law to guide all men back to the ability to make sense based on "something." "Stupid" goes forward with no vision towards the brave new world of transformed morality. Can you possibly understand this, or do you really "know not what you do?" PS -- the Army Training Manual just called Christian evangelists "extremists like Al Qiadda". Any vision of where this is going?

Bill O´Reilly- I´d like to buy him for what he´s worth and sell him for what he thinks he´s worth.

He is so sure of his opinions that he rejects out of hand any differing thoughts from anyone else. This is not a wise man. I believe it is called being a foolish blowhard.

He needs to stick to writing non-fiction for children. He did write a great book about Lincoln that my 11 year old grandson loved.

I love how arguments against same sex marriage always reference what God wants, as though anyone knows. I would think that if God disapproved of homosexuality it wouldn´t exist. Of course, that´s assuming that God gives a rat´s keister about this blue dot at all.

Stop dragging "God´s will" into it and stand on your own feet. You don´t like homos. Great. Don´t marry one.

Have you noticed that from the start this administration has made it their goal to change the definitions of things or to rename things? Their current cause is the definition of marriage. So what will they choose next? Oh yes, no more illegal immigrant. They believe if they change the words they can more easily control the conversation. And guess what? It´s working.

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism.

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned a putrid op-ed in the Washington Post claiming he knew how to fix the Second Amendment to end controversy over its true meaning. The first 10 amendments to the Constitution placed limits on the powers of the new federal government. (Snip) As Second Amendment expert and activist Clayton Cramer says, Stevens is pushing a bunch of hornswaggle. I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that. It is both inaccurate and misleading – and not even in a very clever way.

Not only is Porter likely guilty of the double murder he was initially charged with, an innocent man therefore sits in an east central Illinois prison serving a 37-year sentence. His probable framing was largely orchestrated by a since-discredited “journalism” professor and his students at Northwestern University, a cowed prosecutor’s office in Cook County, and a Chicago media that

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
