Bill O’Reilly continues the “woe is me” theme of casting himself in the role of the persecuted white Christian majority, only this time John Stossel was there to put him in his place and call him a big ol’ cry baby. The conversation was rather amusing:
Self-avowed “secularist” John Stossel challenged Fox News colleague Bill O’Reilly on Tuesday, arguing that the Factor host was overstating his allegations that Christianity was under attack in the U.S.
“Your ‘war on Christianity,’ you’re just a 10-foot-tall crybaby,” Stossel told O’Reilly. “It’s not so bad. Christians aren’t being killed.”
“Not yet,” O’Reilly replied.
“Not in America, and they’re not going to be,” Stossel countered.
“They’re verbally being killed,” O’Reilly insisted. Stossel scoffed in response, asking, “So what?”
Yeah, “verbally killed.” Reasonable people call that being criticized, Bill.
“You shouldn’t be diminished because you believe a certain way,” O’Reilly told Stossel. “Aren’t you outraged by that?”
You mean like you do every day with “secular progressives,” your favorite boogeyman that is responsible for every bad thing imaginable? Are you “verbally killing” secular progressives, Bill? Or are you criticizing them? Wait, I think I know this — it’s criticism when you do it to others but verbal killing if others do it to you. How convenient for you.
