Quotation Of The Day: Bill O'Reilly Supports Paganism Edition

From Bill O'Reilly:
Secular progressives are running wild with President Obama in the White House. They feel unchained, liberated, and they’re trying to diminish any form of religion. The goal is to marginalize religious opposition to secular programs. For example, in Canada and China a woman can have an abortion for any reason at any time. Secular progressives want that here. But traditional forces in America are in opposition. Therefore in this country, you can’t terminate a baby about to be born without a damn good reason. And if you do abort a late term baby, you could be charged with murder. SPs hate that. In Scandanavia, there are laws that say you cannot criticize minorities and if you do, you could be arrested. Secular progressives want laws like that here. Also the legalization of drugs, well under way in many places, and that is a secular cause. So, if the far left can marginalize Santa and the Easter bunny, of they can tell the children those symbols are obsolete and unnecessary, they then set the stage for a totally secular society in the future.[Emphasis in original]
I'm certain there's no reference to either Santa or the Easter bunny in the Bible. Both have some roots in pagan myth. I had no idea that O'Reilly was open minded enough to endorse paganism over secularism; that's an impressive display of courage for a Fox News celebrity. (Snark intended)
