O'Reilly did a week-long bit on the "war of christmas," including an interview with David Silverman, the president of American Atheists. Silverman was merely pointing out the obvious; that government cannot prefer one establishment of religion--i.e., christmas decorations on public property paid for with public taxes--over another. O'Reilly said they weren't pushing religion, they were just celebrating christmas--and Silverman said, "And what is Christ-Mas?" At which point O'Reilly made his idiotic "Christianity is not a religion, it's a philosophy" statement, quickly followed by addressing Silverman--a man evidently of Jewish ancestry--as a -fascist.<quoted text>
But but but...it's not a "religion" anymore apparently...according to the new christian prophet O'Reilly...
<<Wiggley rolls eyes and shrugs>>
When beaten at his own game and on his own show, and in front of his own audience, O'Reilly is one hateful christian piece of shit.
And then, like the fundies here, he proclaims himself "winner" of the debate.
