Bill O’Reilly Wants To Destroy Your Faith In Jesus And The Bible.


“But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time…” Jude 1

Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly does not believe that the bible is true or trustworthy, and in his new book “Killing Jesus”, he explains why. O’Reilly also says that, after casting doubt on the entire New Testament and mocking the words of Jesus, that the “Holy Spirit inspired him to write it”.

Imagine that.

“This is best available evidence according to Bill,” O’Reilly responded.

From NewsMax: Bill O’Reilly didn’t become the most popular personality in cable television news by being noncontroversial. And he told CBS’s “60 Minutes” on Sunday that he wasn’t afraid to spark controversy in his new historical thriller, “Killing Jesus.”

Though he used the New Testament’s four Gospels as source material, he left out parts he doesn’t believe happened as written. For instance, Jesus didn’t say, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do” from the cross, the Catholic O’Reilly maintains. It wouldn’t have been physically possible, he said.

“You die on a cross from being suffocated,” he said. “You can hardly breathe. We believe Jesus said that, but we don’t believe he said it on the cross because nobody could have heard it.”

People have a right to take the Bible literally, he said, but in the case of “Killing Jesus,” he was trying to be historically accurate. He never says in the book that Jesus was the Son of God because his book is not intended to be religious.

“So is this the Gospel according to Bill?” asked “60 Minutes” correspondent Norah O’Donnell.

“This is best available evidence according to Bill,” O’Reilly responded. 

The most important thing he learned while writing the book was that Jesus of Nazareth became the most famous human being who ever lived, yet he had no infrastructure. He had no government, no public relations expert, no money and no structure, O’Reilly said.

“It’s never been done.”

“Killing Jesus,” follows two other best-sellers by the former high school history teacher, “Killing Lincoln” and “Killing Kennedy,” about two U.S. presidents assassinated a century apart. He writes the books with a co-author who does extensive historical research. O’Reilly uses the material to rewrite a fast-moving, compelling story.

He admits the titles are sensational, but explains that’s the only way to be heard in the marketplace. ”I just want to write about important things in a very entertaining way,” he said. “That’s the formula.”

While the book isn’t religious, O’Reilly is. He says he was inspired to write “Killing Jesus” by the Holy Spirit. He says he just woke up in the middle of the night and thought, “Killing Jesus.”

Asked by O’Donnell why the Holy Spirit would mark him as “the chosen one,” O’Reilly denied any such title. Instead, he said, he is “just one of many who have been given the gift. I can write and I can bloviate on TV.”

O’Reilly now makes more than $20 million a year through Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” a syndicated column and a live tour he does with comedian Dennis Miller. Two of O’Reilly’s third-grade classmates told O’Donnell he used to get the whole class in trouble by arguing with the nun who taught the class.

“Ain’t America great?” O’Reilly responded. “I was a little thug, and now I’m getting paid millions of dollars for being a big thug.” source – NewsMax.

Why Two-Thirds of Americans Want the Bible in Public Schools.


Bible in classroom

The place of the Bible in public schools has been debated since the 1963 Supreme Court ruling in the consolidated cases of Abington School District v. Schempp and Murray v. Curlett. The debate continued earlier this year with the Texas Freedom Network findings, “Reading, Writing and Religion II.”

But as kids head back to the hallways this week, what do Americans really believe about the role of the Bible—and its values—in public schools?

A recent study found Americans overwhelmingly (77 percent) believe morals and values are declining in the U.S., and 75 percent believe a valid reason to teach the Bible in public schools is because it would provide kids with moral principles that are badly needed. Currently, only Arizona, Oklahoma, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas allow elective Bible courses in public high schools. Arkansas, Wyoming and North Carolina may soon follow suit.

The American Bible Society details the findings in its annual “State of the Bible” survey, which also reports Americans’ beliefs about the Bible, its role in society, its presence in U.S. homes and more. The “State of the Bible in 2013” survey, conducted by Barna Group on behalf of the American Bible Society, found that:

  • 66 percent of adults think it is important for public schools to teach the values of the Bible.
  • 75 percent think teaching about the Bible in public schools could be valid because it teaches moral principles badly needed today.
  • 45 percent think a valid objection to teaching the Bible is that it would favor one religion over another.
  • 32 percent fear it might offend people.
  • 11 percent think it would take time away from learning other subjects.
  • 9 percent believe there is no valid reason to teach the Bible in schools.

American Bible Society President Doug Birdsall says it may not be wise to shelter children and young adults from the best-selling book in history.

“While our intention may be to protect students from the influence of ‘other people’s’ religion, the effect has been that we are raising a generation ignorant about the most influential book of all time,” Birdsall says.

The producer of the miniseries The Bible, which beat out The Walking Dead in viewership its first week, agrees.

“I really, really believe the Bible should be taught in public schools,” said reality show megaproducer Mark Burnett (SurvivorThe Voice) on The O’Reilly Factor. “It is embarrassing for young Americans to go overseas in their mid-20s after college and do business in Rio de Janeiro or Berlin or Paris and not know who David and Goliath are.”

Rove: No-Fly Zone Could Have US Stuck in Syria, Like US in Iraq.


As President Barack Obama considers military options in Syria, Republican strategist Karl Rove warns against a no-fly zone.

“If you make a commitment to a no-fly zone, then you’re going to be stuck like we were in Iraq for the better part of a decade enforcing [it],” Rove said Monday on Fox News Channel’sO’Reilly Factor.”

“I’d rather seriously degrade their air assets and their ability to put planes in the air and keep them in the air.”

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told CNN he doesn’t think Obama needs to get congressional approval to take action against Syria for using chemical weapons on civilians, but Rove disagreed.

Host Bill O’Reilly said Obama should have no trouble getting Democrats and Republicans to approve action after seeing video of gassed children, some of them dead, after an attack last week that Doctors Without Borders said may have killed 355 and injured 3,600.

But Rove noted that there are some isolationists on both sides of the aisle, possible a quarter to a third of Congress, who would vote no.

Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday called last week’s attack a “moral obscenity.”

In the end, Rove would like to see the United States have a plan to arm the elements in the Syrian opposition who are not connected to al-Qaida.

“This is what we should have been doing two years ago,” Rove said. “We didn’t do it, and al-Qaida elements took the lead in the fight against [President Basher] Assad.”

Bill O’Reilly: Obama Right to Insult Putin.


Some Republicans didn’t think it appropriate when President Barack Obama said in a Friday press conference that Russian President Vladimir Putin  has “got that kind of slouch, looking like the bored kid in the back of the classroom.”

But Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly, usually not a fan of the liberal Democratic president, thought it was spot on.

“I like what President Obama said. I think it’s accurate. Putin is an immature and irresponsible leader,” he said Monday on “The O’Reilly Factor.”

ObamaCareYou Can Win With The Facts 

The time for detente with Putin is over, O’Reilly said. “How much more does he have to rub our faces in it?”

But guest Karl Rove disagreed.

“Vladimir Putin is a prickly personality, and the president needs to deal with him as the president,” Rove said. “He was dealing with him in that news conference as a pundit.”

O’Reilly countered, “There comes a point where you call out the schoolyard bully, and you slap him around a little bit.”

“Only if he thinks that you’re tough,” Rove said. Putin sees Obama as weak after such actions as unilaterally canceling America’s deal with Poland and the Czech Republic to build a missile defense system.

“Putin looks at him and says, he’ll stab his friends in the back. He’s weak,” Rove said.

Rep. Amash: Congress Purposely Kept in Dark on Surveillance Efforts.


It’s “total nonsense” to say Congress was told about the NSA collecting communications data on Americans, and as a matter of fact, efforts are made to keep members of Congress in the dark, says Rep. Justin Amash, a Republican from Michigan.

Members would have a stack of documents hundreds of pages long stacked on a table in front of them and told to read it, Amash said Wednesday on Fox News Channel’sO’Reilly Factor.” 

If congressional members don’t know the definitions of terms used by intelligence agencies such as the National Security Agency, they have no way of knowing what the documents mean, he said. One example: There is a difference between the words “collect” and “acquire.” 

Editor’s Note: 75% of Seniors Make This $152,000 Social Security Mistake 

Further, Amash said, committee members have to phrase their questions in just the right way during hearings or they won’t get the answers they seek.

Amash said members of the intelligence committees were aware of the full extent of surveillance, “but I think rank and file members, yes, there was an effort to keep information from us.”

Amash said that as recently as last week, a classified document was going to be made available, but it was announced just one day before through an “unusual channel.” His staff happened to notice it and he informed other members. 

Other members of Congress had missed the announcement. Their knowledge of the meeting came from Amash himself, he said.

Juan Williams: Sharpton, Jackson Showing ‘Bad Leadership’ in Zimmerman Case.


Civil rights leaders like the Rev. Al Sharpton and the Rev. Jesse Jackson are still caught up in the 1950s and ’60s and have made race into a business, says columnist and Fox News commentator Juan Williams.

“On the other side of that fence, I understand there are lots of poor black people, poor people of any color in this country, who feel they never get heard from, and when a Sharpton or Jackson shows up, at least the media shows up,” Williams said Monday on Fox Business Network‘s “Lou Dobbs Tonight.”

“But I think it’s bad leadership when you don’t say to people, ‘Here’s what you can do to help yourself. Here’s why we can help you in terms of education, in terms of employment, in terms of family, in terms of faith to take the steps to get up that ladder of upward mobility and enjoy America and benefit from all that America has to offer,” Williams continued.

Williams said that rather than seeing civil rights leaders focus on hot-button issues such as the George Zimmerman acquittal, he would focus on the breakdown of the black family and the need for better schools.

“I would talk about drugs, I would talk about that whole thug life, gangster culture that is being encouraged,” he said.

Williams later moved over to Fox News Channel’sO’Reilly Factor” to continue the attack.

“You never see a protest against the drug dealers. You never see them taking on the unions about the bad schools in the big cities that educate black and Hispanic and poor children,” Williams said. “You never see anybody say, ‘Hey, you know what? We’ve got too many out-of-wedlock births in our community. And it leaves kids feeling abandoned.”
