On Thursday morning's edition of Fox News' "Fox & Friends," the hosts spoke with Bill O'Reilly via telephone about Indiana's discriminatory "religious freedom" law that would essentially allow businesses to refuse to serve gay customers.

Bill O'Reilly feels that there is a global war on Christians and "Muslim jihadists" and the "secular progressive movement" are basically the same thing.

"I mean if you just link everything together, we just heard about the terror attack in Kenya on Christians-- you've got two things in play," he said. "You've got the Muslim extremist jihadists. They wanna kill Christians and they're doing it all over the world. And then in the United States and in Western Europe, you have a civil war between the secular progressive movement and the traditional religious people. In both cases, Christians are targets."
