Christianity is not a religion
 
According to Bill O'Reilly.

I personally believe that US Bill O'Reillys are unable to do so because, uh, some O'Reillys out there in our nation don't have dictionaries.

You're feeding the troll.

JackWhiteIsButts 11-29-2012 06:07 PM

Well in that case we better start teaching it in schools ASAP.

adamgur96 11-29-2012 06:08 PM

k.

Dirge Humani 11-29-2012 06:11 PM

In that case I'm sure Mr. O'Reilly wouldn't object to all Christian churches losing tax exemption in the US.

So...uh, what is it then?...

Yeah, and so is Buddhism, except for the fact that both have organized congregations and denominations. :rolleyes:

Christianity is a philosophy. It just so happens to be a religious philosophy.

And, considering the different denominations and congregations and synods (etc.), that makes it an organized religion...WHOA, DUDE!...

QED, Bill O'Rielly is a fucktard!

Arby911 11-29-2012 06:22 PM

It's all about generating controversy, which in turn generates ratings, because love him or hate him Bill O'Reilly isn't stupid.

Doesn't mean he isn't wrong...

guitarist41 11-29-2012 06:23 PM

I guess it depends on how you define "philosophy" and "religion"...and "Christianity".

The man is infuriating, and every time I watch him I get that feeling that I get when I realise I'm probably being trolled hard by someone louder and more stubborn than myself.

Yeah, I find it difficult to feel a whole lot of outrage over O'Rielly, simply because I'm pretty god damn certain he'd say whatever you wanted him to if you paid him enough.

Which is kind of worse in its own way, don't get me wrong. It just doesn't trigger that visceral fury from me the way it does for some.

lolmnt 11-29-2012 06:26 PM

He's right though.

Rust_in_Peace34 11-29-2012 06:26 PM

You know guys, a Christmas tree and gift giving ARE secular symbols of the winter solstice. What do they really have to do with the birth of Christ?
