Bill OReilly: Duck Dynastys Phil Robertson made a mistake
Cheryl K. Chumley, Washington Times
Fox News Channels Bill O'Reilly, host of The O'Reilly Factor, said Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame actually erred with some of his biblically-based comments about the sinfulness of homosexuality.
Mr. O'Reilly, a self-proclaimed Christian, honed in on one specific part of Mr. Robertsons much-publicized quotes in GQ magazine the condemnation aspect.
Mr. Robertson, I believe, made a mistake by the condemnation line, he said, Politico reported. Its not about the Bible, or believing or not believing in the Bible. Its singling out a group, it could be any group, and saying to that group, Hey you are not worthy in the eyes of the Lord, or in the eyes of God. You are not worthy because of who you are. So once you get that personal, once you get down and into that kind of a realm, problems arise.
Mr. O'Reilly said his own views of Mr. Robertsons remarks are based in the Bible, too. His guest conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham disagreed, calling his view just wrong, Politico said.

Sorry Billy. Telling the truth is never a “mistake”.
Except for agreeing to do an interview with GQ, he didn’t make any mistakes.
Hey Bill, it's not about who they are but what they do!
Hmmmmmm- - - - ?
Looks like Billy O’R is a certifiable Obamacrat!
I actually like O’Reilly but he’s not telling the truth here. Phil said let God sort it out - O’Reilly is not telling the truth here.
Now, is there any doubt that Billo is allies with the enemy? As onyx has pointed out, that channel is indeed Faux News. It may be the best we have have but that’s not saying much.
Note to FOX.
You lost this viewer forever because of O’Blowhard long ago.
Dump this pompous @sshole.
Mark Levin made me laugh when he said that FNC should hire Phil Robertson and put him in 8 pm time slot, Bill OReilly’s
You mean a “mistake” like sexually harassing your producer, Bill?
Bill needs to figure out what would happen to gays in the rest of the world...He's another one that goes to church with a dusty Bible with crisp clean pages that never been exposed to light.

I can’t believe how many people who think they are conservatives still fall for BOR’s line of crap. Phil Robertson paraphrased St. Paul, and it was very nearly a direct quote. BOR is trying to get brownie points with Jon Stewart and Bill Maher.
Probably the only group the Apostle Paul excluded from salvation. He said “such will not enter into the Kingdom of Heaver”. I suppose if they repented and quit being active in their perversion, then they could be saved.
Hey Bill, ever hear of Sodom and Gomora? Ok, probably spelled that wrong and I doubt it will be in spell check.
As far as a mistake, there was a theory proposed that he did this on purpose to get out of the contract because he/they didn’t like what A&E was trying to make them into; staging arguments and such. There might be something to it. But the Rush fill in had a great line:
Evil pleads for tolerance until it gains dominance. Then it seeks to silence good.
He nailed that one!
Come on O’Reilly....
Robertson also made a natural law argument, ie. “it’s just illogical dude” or something to that effect.
Poor Bill. He’s been trying to straddle that opinion fence so long i’m surprised he hasn’t fallen off one side or the other and really hurt himself.
Why is the liberal point of view considered to be so intelligent, when it is so easy to debunk? They have to misrepresent facts to come anywhere near a cogent argument.
Give the fist half of his time slot to Laura Ingraham. Give the second half to Phil Robertson, with a closing commentary by Uncle Si.
The fence is going up his behind like a luffa sponge
O’Reilly and Goldberg are effectively equating the anus to the vulva.
I hope Robertson never gives Bill an interview. Bill has really overplayed his “judgmental” hand. It was just plain stupid.
I had O’Reilly on this afternoon. When he started saying Phil should apologize, I switched to That 70’s Show. Better viewing anyway. The best of O’Reilly is Dennis Miller.
A&E should apologize to Phil.
Does Bill realize that Phil was paraphrasing 1 Corinthians 6:9?
Bill is apparently unfamiliar with Romans 1:16-32. If Bill is saved, then the Holy Spirit will convince him of the truth of the scriptures.
What was this supposed mistake?
It’s got to be painful to sit on both sides of the fence. BOR is a coward.
using this ‘logic’, murderers should not be condemned and would be welcomed into heaven with open arms.
along with rapists, thieves, pedophiles, etc...
FYI, having a belief, stating it unapologetically, and living by it has a name...
I hate it when you tell the truth, and you get crucified for it. Wait, didn’t Jesus?
Not like that is newsworthy.
The few times I’ve watched Bill O’Reilly I’ve thought: this man is stupid.
He’s like Obama that way.
” OBlowhard.....pompous @sshole.”
That is also my opinion of O’RoRo. He has become a bit full of himself.
Good ol’ Ted Baxter.
Idiot O’Reily. Phil clarified and said God is the judge of all.
And this marshmallow brain calls himself a “conservative” and a “Catholic?”
It’s a “mistake” to call someone speaking God’s Word “a mistake.”
I’ve never considered any liberal opinion to be intelligent.
occasionally correct, sure... but that’s purely by dumb luck
He used the scriptural story of the woman caught in an adulterous act. O’Reilly said Jesus merely sent her away. O’Rielly is wrong. Jesus came upon a bunch of men about to stone the adulteress to death. He said “he who is without sin cast the first stone.” They laid there stones down. He then told the woman to go and sin no more. If it had been a homosexual instead of the adulterous woman, he would have said to the homosexual, “go and sin no more.” O’Reilly missed the punch line.
But Billo is looking out for you and "the folks" with his no spin. Reminds me of a guy in Europe back in the 20th Century who was also very völkisch. I have no doubts that when his program's over, he pulls a Uncle Don, "...there, that oughta hold the little b*st*rds!"
Monkey brain O’Reilly strikes again.
Same here. The man revealed himself to be the far left liberal he obviously is back in 2004 when he said the Swift Boat Vets had no right to be heard. O'Reilly the bloviator is heard every weekday but these combat veterans have not earned that same right?
BOR is a POS and is a big part of the reason why I no longer watch Fox News.
Billy O’R is Catholic, and was raised up when Church Services were in Latin.
Many Catholics of that Era have never read The Bible.
Billy O’R just might be a “victim” of his education, or he might just be a Leftstream Media spinner for Obamacrats.
As Billy O’R is fond of saying at the end of his spin cycle show “The spin starts here.”
BTW, why does Billy O’R bother having guests on his show? He always shouts over the top of then.
Billy also said Obamacare would NEVER get past the Court.
He didn’t single out anyone. He expressed a preference for vagina over man anus. It’s really not that complicated.
So BO’R is now a theologian, complete with Roman collar??? He’s pretty thin on his knowledge of Scripture, IMO.
Bill O’Reilly loves to appear to be “open minded” and oh so “tolerant”. Problem is that he is not the sharpest knife in the rack and often looks and sounds ridiculous. His analysis of most issues is superficial and often silly.
