  • "If every trace of any single religion died out and nothing were passed on, it would never be created exactly that way again. There might be some other nonsense in its place, but not that exact nonsense. If all of science were wiped out, it would still be true and someone would find a way to figure it all out again." - Penn Jilete

    • @verycoolcat that is actually a well thought out, ever true quote.

      I have always appreciated Penn's wisdom, but that is amazingly astute.

    • @verycoolcat I love me some Penn Jillette but as a person of faith I have to disagree with him on this issue. This argument only holds up if you don't agree with the notion of God revealing truth to us, something you are perfectly entitled to believe or not. It's one of those statements that sounds like a slam dunk but, unusually for Penn, it only holds up if you don't think about it more deeply.

      Although I respect your right to believe what you want, the only thing I know is that there have been many a religions throughout history. Many that pre-date christianity by thousands of years. Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam, Norse, Roman, Egyptian, Greek, Babylonian, Zoroastrianism. Even now there are religions including deviations of Christianity that spring up Mormonism, Lutheran, Catholic, Protestant, Scientology, Flying Spaghetti Monster, and we're not even talking abo More..

  • It is time that ALL religious groups loss their tax exempt status, then they can say whatever they want.

    Pastor Goebbels here wants HIS morality to be encoded in law. I love how he can parse an issue. Religious nutcases will be the end of our democracy.

    Father Beck seems quite precious too, as an aside.

  • 1. o'reilly is a grade A nutjob.
    2. The guest, pastor Jeffress is an even bigger nutjob.
    He's also bloody dangerous! He sits there with a fake pious grin on his fucking face that you just want to punch, trying to convince people that religion should have a voice in politics.

    There's supposed to be a clear and unwavering division between church and state. Once that line is blurred - you, as a free citizen, are fucked.

      We have similar problems here in Sweden.
      I'm about to move to a town up north and have been spending several nights now pouring over internet forums trying to figure out which parts of town are infested so I can avoid them.

      Not even safe in my own country anymore. Sweden will be a muslim republic in 30 years.

  • so a pastor stops being a pastor when he leaves the church? sorry, but being a clergyman isn't just a position you can 'leave at the office' in order to go out and exercise your first amendment rights -- that argument just doesn't hold water.

      Pundits from both sides practice this double-standard with fervor.

      Not to mention that their "hot topics" are generally polarized trivialities that serve to distract the american populous from the wanton waste and corruption within the government.

  • I watched this interview and found it to be quite interesting.

    Although this is a baited post by someone who finds that religion and politics are some what of a fallacy.

    The bottom line is; that sacrificing the Rights of an individual (religious or not) for political gain is wrong.

    Haha, this should be in the category 'humor', not politics.

  • How can there be separation if religion (read the christian right) is one of the biggest lobby groups in America? Big enough in fact to change policy.

  • Every once and a while Bill O'Reilly says something or does something smart like when he defended JC Penney's decision to keep Ellen for their ad campaign: this is one of those moments. Of course there was the standard ask a question and then talk over them if he doesn't immediately get the answer he wanted, but he framed this segment as religion's influence on politics but then ended it saying the cardinal was 'worried about the intrusion of the federal government in his church.'

  • God wanted us to go forth and multiply. And that we did. We are now more than 6 billion. I suppose that God had wanted His world and people to share our earths resources. But that hasn’t happened. We are more interested in making weapons than feeding all fellow people throughout our world. We are over populated and many are starving. Don’t worry I’m not a communist. We should have balanced things through charity. So now we find ourselves saying the end of the world is coming or 2/3 of the More..

    • @william987 "Most giving"? So you count the reason that you should be saved by some sky fairy is because "you give the most"? LoL what a wanker.

      How do you measure charity? Isn't charity the act of giving to the needy, self-sacrifice, above and beyond in some cases the means to which one lives? Yet here you are proclaiming to "giving money and throw charity at people" in one sentence, and then proclaiming that the people you give charity to should die anyway becau More..

  • Father Beck is queer as a 3 dollar bill. No wonder he is taking Obama's side.
    Of all the priests out there, why would O'reilly invite a flaming queer on his show like this? They are not all gay, and they are not all child molesters.
