On "The O'Reilly Factor" on Tuesday, host Bill O'Reilly came out in support of allowing gays and lesbians to marry, saying that they've made a "compelling" case, while opponents "[haven’t] been able to do anything but thump the Bible.”
“The compelling argument is on the side of homosexuals,” O’Reilly said. “That is where the compelling argument is. We’re Americans, we just want to be treated like everybody else.” He continued: “That’s a compelling argument, and to deny that you’ve got to have a very strong argument on the other side. And the other side hasn’t been able to do anything but thump the Bible.”
“I support civil unions, I always have,” he added. “The gay marriage thing, I don’t feel that strongly about it one way or the other. I think the states should do it.”
