BLATHERING BLOWHARD O'REILLY MOCKS CHRIST ON NATIONAL PROGRAM, OFFENDS MANY, GETS OFF LIGHT. HOW SOON WE FORGET.

In another inane "interview", Bill O'Reilly tonight gave the esteemed Brit Hume a token appearance, interrupting shamelessly, and depriving his guest of the chance to say anything useful. O'Reilly is a blathering blowhard. I am disgusted with his rudeness and incivility. Especially toward kindred conservative spirits like Hume.

But my impatience with O'Reilly hit its zenith recently when he did another self-serving promotion of his squirm-worthy book "Killing Jesus". It was cheeky of the O'Reilly to even claim the topic, much less try to write about it respectfully and intelligently. But what finally blew out all my circuits was when O'Reilly, who was being interviewed on Fox, characterized the Lord Jesus Christ as "a regular guy" who was killed for no reason. Or words to that effect. "A regular guy"? How dare he? Does he know how blessed the Name of Jesus is to the millions of faithful who worship Him, and have for over 2,000 years, and will forever?

To see this boastful, narcissistic grandstander mock Christ, the only begotten Son of God, and belittle Him, referring to the Lord as "a regular guy", is a sin that stands apart, and for which O'Reilly's soul will surely answer in time. I think the Fox pundit has gotten off light, having been given a pass by most of us who would prefer to cower before the cynical media elite rather than speak up for the Lord. "I knew not the man" is a denial which applies now as it did when first uttered by Peter, His most beloved Disciple.

Since this epic effrontery, I have not watched his show with the respect I once did, if at all. And, for me, the O'Reilly "habit" has been snapped like an over-stretched bowstring. That's me. Over-stretched. By one man's insufferable pride -- the singular trait in men that Jesus said offended Him most.
