Bill O’Reilly’s Surprising Reaction to the ‘Duck Dynasty’ Fiasco

While interviewing Laura Ingraham on his Thursday night telecast, Bill O’Reilly actually condemned what Duck Dynasty performer Phil Robertson said about African Americans and the LGBT community. Eric Dolan from Raw Story reported:

[Ingraham] said it was “disturbing” that Robertson had been suspended by A&E for merely expressing his religious views.

But O’Reilly insisted Robertson was wrong to condemn others.

“It’s not about the Bible, or believing or not believing in the Bible,” he explained. “It’s singling out a group, could be any group, and saying to that group ‘Hey, you’re not worthy. You’re not worthy in the eyes of the Lord, or in the eyes of God, you’re not worthy because of who you are.’ So once you get that personal, once you get down into that kind of a realm, problems arise.”

Sure, Bill O’Reilly is normally a major dickhole. But every once in a while he totally surprises — occasionally and, perhaps, accidentally blurting out contra-right-wing common sense. Whatever the reason, good for Bill O’Reilly.
