O'Reilly And The Rehabilitated Sinner

Reported by Deborah - August 16, 2005

There's just too much confusing gray area in the Cindy Sheehan story so tonight O'Reilly found the perfect story to satisfy his base. A lesbian couple who split are now battling for custody of their child,who was concieved through artificial insemination. Now that the couple have split and moved to different states, they are caught in a legal nightmare. Oh, but there's a twist to this story that makes it one of the Fox dream stories of all times. 8/16/05

The biological Mom appeared on the show with a lawyer who specialized in the complexity of child custody battles between Gay parents. When O'Reilly came right out to ask why the couple split,it was clear that he was digging for gold.

The woman explained she was now a Christian and no longer a Lesbian and didn't want her ex to have any contact with the child. Of course, O'Reilly saw no need to ask how converting to Christianity could change her sexual orientation in light of all the accepted research in that area.

He did however ask her, " Do you have any regrets that you had your child under those circumstance?" The guest, at first confused by the question, didn't realize that O'Reilly was merely pandering to his base audience so he repeated it 4 times for emphasis. She never did give him the answer he wanted.

comment: O'Reilly of course wanted a statement of repentance and regret to help drive that message home. In O'Reilly world there's only room for black/white issues and homosexuality is not a genetic predisposition . In O'Reilly world there's room for Intelligent Design in the Science classroom but no room for two Mommies at the PTA meeting.

It's interesting to note that if Gay Marriage were legalized in all states, the custody cases could be handled easily. But of course that's not about to happen in O'Reilly world.
