Bill O’Reilly Recants, Says Christianity is a Religion Again

Well, that didn’t take long.

A week after Bill O’Reilly told Dave Silverman that Christianity was a philosophy and not a religion (which is why we should allow things like Nativity displays on government property), he recanted and admitted it was indeed a religion.

Here’s his conversation with Father Jonathan Morris (the good part begins at 6:20):

O’Reilly: “This isn’t a Catholic issues, you Protestants out there and you unaffiliated Christians, we’re all in the same soup bowl here.”

Morris: And not just Christians. Not just Christians and Catholics. People of belief.

O’Reilly: People who admire the philosophy of Christianity. But we are under siege…

Morris: The religion of Christianity. Let me correct you on that.

O’Reilly: We’re not gonna debate that now.

Morris: It’s also a religion.

O’Reilly: It’s a religion but it’s a philosophy that is being… administered by different religions. But we’ll have you back for that discussion.

Morris: I couldn’t let you get away with that.

That’s all it took? A Catholic priest says he’s wrong and O’Reilly backs down?! Dave Silverman said he was wrong and O’Reilly got all defensive. There’s a lesson to be learned in all this.

I think it’s that bullshitters will accept the truth only when it comes from other bullshitters.

Or something like that.
