The “homosexuals are dogs” comment is taken out of context. ....
That comment was posted two days ago and has also been removed by the moderators.
***Why remove it? If it’s taken out of context, that says it all about Bill O’Reilly’s standards.

Exactly. "Dogs in the Manger" is a metaphor, from a fable. The American Heritage Dictionary defines it thus: "One who prevents others from enjoying what one has no use for oneself." This is NOT the same as calling homosexuals dogs.

I agree. I don't know if you can un-remove a post, but just on principle a comment taken out of context like that shoudn't be removed.

OReily became national on Current Affair. Out of conext was tabloid television’s bread and butter.

We should not be surprised he takes things out of context for sensationalism now.
