Going to Hell (without a hand basket)
http://www.billoreilly.com ^ | September 26, 2013 | Bill O'Reilly

Posted on 09/30/2013 7:31:34 AM PDT by kimtom

While writing my latest book, Killing Jesus, I knew I would catch hell once it hit the marketplace. Your mom was right when she told you never to discuss politics and religion because emotions run so high in those arenas. Especially religion.

Even before Killing Jesus was released, the mail began pouring in. And some of it was very nasty.

Brent in Texas opined: "O'Reilly, you are not someone who has the right to write a book about Jesus."

Eric in South Carolina: "You are helping to deceive people with your ignorance about Jesus."

Al in Louisiana: "Bill, what do you know about Jesus? You are Catholic and they don't know anything about the Bible."

And Raleigh in California really let loose with some disturbing stuff: "Bill, please repent before it is too late. You seem to be angry at God because he put a black man in the White House."

Again, none of those folks had actually read Killing Jesus because it had not been released. The book is pure history; there is no religion in it. The people lashing out at me for daring to address their savior in any capacity are so intense in their beliefs that they have lost all sight of reality.

Now, a sad fact of life in America is that there are some very unstable folks running ......

This book should be a lesson to Liam Ó Raghallaigh by being his lowest-selling ever: Never speak lies against the Son of God.

He and shep need to be at cnn or pms-nbc. Not as pithy with his commentary as he believes he is.

I’m curious...what does his book claim that is incorrect? I have not read it, nor claim to defend his Catholic views.

BOR is a phony Christian. Many, many, times BOR reveals his ignorance of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. So how can he write a book about Him. History not religion? A book about Jesus MINUS religion?

Bill, I don’t have to (and never will) read your book to know you are a fool. Why would I read a book written by a fool? You still have time (no one knows how much) to repent, ask for forgiveness, and accept His free gift.

Sounds like he’s really made some factual errors in the book! I haven’t read it, so can you let me know which are his most inaccurate premises? Thanks in advance.

“BOR is a phony Christian..”

I have a similar conclusion, I was very disappointed in “no spin zone”.

I can stomach (though disagree with) some of his political commentary, more power to him.
But when he spouts the “official Dogma” on killing Kennedy,
(still unsolved) then I would warn the public.

(besides, the book is narrated for 10-16 year olds.....uurrgh!)

God help us!!!

Bill and Hey soos just 2 buds chillin together. Oreilly’s should try to at least listen to the scripture readings when he goes to mass. A little bit of the Word would go a long way.

I admit , I did not finish “killing Kennedy” it was not history, nor an attempt.
(no references etc) I heard same about “...Lincoln..”

with so many release records on the Kennedy case in last decade, there are questions about LHO involvement.

Now regardless of one’s view, you should allow for “other” possibilities and not narrate as “fact”

(my opinion)

We’re getting pretty tired of you trying to be cute with your cursing. We’d better not have to come clean you after you again.

Second question of the day: “IF Bill-O is a Catholic, and Catholics believe that Jesus IS alive, THEN should the Pope excommunicate Bill-O for the title of his book?”

His comments illustrate either a purposeful deception or a lack of knowledge of history. Is he not familiar with the 1920s century anarchist/labor movements? Is he not familiar with the 1960s and the radical movements spawned during this period? The fanatics are in the White house. The Tea Party is just a reassertion of the principles of conservative libertarianism on which this country thrived for the 137 years of its existence without an income tax.

I’ll try to be better, but just like with General Patton, sometimes cursing is the best way to express it.

I have not read the book either. I am interested in what he says that is incorrect, but let's face it. I am not scholar enough to know what is accurate either historically or religiously about this tome.

I do know that here are many HISTORICAL references to Jesus in the historical record. There was certainly a Tiberius and a Pontius Pilot. Herod was real, as there is historical record, outside the bible, for many off Christ's immediate followers.

That being said. To dispute the written traditions of the Catholic Church, and subsequently most Protestant denominations, with unverifiable speculation would be silly if not offensive to believers.

“Before the Income Tax”

IMO, the article is rendered suspect by disparaging remarks vis-à-vis “neocons.”

Great marketing ploy.

It stands to reason anti-Christian Leftists aren't going to buy his book. So what does he do? He goes out and lumps in the very audience who would otherwise be interested in this topic and lumps them together with the left wing nutcakes.

Thank God for Moderates, eh, Bill.

No doubt the book will be a best seller, though. Not that he'll get a penny from me.

Ah, well. He wouldn't want my money anyway.

O'Really makes his pilgrimage to the bastion of Left-Wing Wackoism to shill his wares, 60 Minutes, so now the question is, will he go to the home of the equally wacko (in Bill's eyes) Right Wing Extremists, The 700 Club to pitch it?

Funny how he pokes us in the eye and then chastises us for complaining about being poked in the eye.

That is just silly. Jesus was killed by the Romans on behest of the Pharisees. The miracle is that three days later he rose from the dead.

When I heard Billy was writing this one, the first thought I had was “Has he had some sort of conversion experience since writing that “soft porn” book awhile back?”

How much license will he take???? He deserves criticism.

I do not know how much license he takes. I have not read nor to I intend on reading his latest book. I have not read ANY of his books, though I would imagine they are at least interesting as he has sold millions of them.

To criticize him without reading his book and being able to cite where he misrepresents either history or biblical tradition is not right either.

I legitimately am asking anyone the has read the book where is he wrong. What part is BS.

Just asking.

see post 11, 13 I was disappointed in both cases.

he is not about accuracy, the criticism is justified. his latest book is not out, but he should have known better.

“Jesus was killed by the Romans....”

.
His executioners were soldiers of the 10th (or 11th?) Roman Legion based in Judea.

It is said that most of them were German volunteers.
