Oooh, get the popcorn and watch the show. Billo has really riled up the religious righties with his 'Bible-thumping' comments, and their Empire is striking back. Bryan Fischer, who I never agree with, actually got something right in this short rant, when he called Billo a "pompous, arrogant windbag." He's right!

RightWingWatch:

Bryan Fischer is furious with Bill O'Reilly over his recent statement that opponents of marriage equality do nothing but "thump the Bible" as Fischer ripped into him on his radio program yesterday, calling O'Reilly "blindly ignorant" of all the non-Scriptural arguments opponents of gay marriage have made.

Fischer admitted that anti-gay activists have indeed thumped their Bibles and have done so because it contains the revealed word of God, but they have made other arguments as well, but O'Reilly - who "a lot of the times just comes across as a pompous, arrogant windbag" - has just been "completely oblivious to this." Fischer was outraged by this "insult, this ridicule, this mockery of ordinary Americans who do believe in the Bible as the revealed word of God."

"The implication," Fischer declared, "is [that] we're a bunch of neanderthal, redneck, hillbilly Bible-bangers. That is essentially what he is saying were are ... He's insulting us to our face"

Gosh, they're both right. Fischer is a neanderthal Bible-banger, and Billo is a pompous windbag.

Score tied, guess we're going to overtime.
