O'Reilly surely is quite cognizant of keeping his ratings high as he sees support for gay marriage rise rapidly in the polls. But if the debate over marriage equality now needs to move into the Fox News audience, it's certainly not a bad thing to have O'Reilly taking on the anti-equality crowd.
It should go without saying that if you don't have a reason for doing something as serious as denying one group of human beings of over a thousand legal rights, you probably shouldn't do it. It should. But in the year 2013, in the United States of America, it does not.
While MSNBC is not banking on Hayes stealing O'Reilly Factor viewers any time soon, they are betting on the demographic shift that helped the Democratic Party win in 2012.
While it certainly was (quoting the Flintstones theme) a "gay old time" in Washington this week, I have already spent the whole week on the subject, so I'm really only going to mention it in passing.
It is not difficult to extract O'Reilly's larger point. In this modern day passion story, O'Reilly stands with Jesus and the oppressed Jews of ancient Galilee. The current administration and secular progressives stand with the Christ-killer Romans.
Joy Behar, the departing co-host of "The View," joined comedian Judy Gold for a night of laughs at 92Y on March 12, 2013. In this clip, Behar dished a...
Too many students here waste a unique opportunity to learn from equally intelligent other young people who think differently than they do. On a campus that prizes diversity, diversity of thought is largely squandered.

With Hillary Clinton's overseas term coming to a close and growing speculation about her future political plans in America, we're witnessing the unsightly resurrection of the Clinton Crazies, or Clinton Derangement Syndrome.
Foul-mouthed without being particularly funny, involved without being compelling, Judd Apatow's This Is 40 wants to be deeper than it really is. Which is an Apatowian trademark.
Public expressions of discontent simply add to the negative impressions of Christians as insensitive, whiny and -- let's be honest -- jerks.
I'm bringing the so-called "war on Christmas" home this year, by putting a permanent end to my stupid habit of calling my a "Christmas Cactus."
I do not at all care how often the word "Christmas" is (not) used by politicians, entertainers or my local barista. As a Christian, I do not think that it is our God-given right to display Christian symbols on public land as if we have claimed the U.S. as Jesus' primary mailing address.
From the best political bits on late night to a few unintentionally hilarious moments from the politicians themselves, 2012 was a great year to laugh at politics in America.
One of the strangest memes to come out of the Republican Party in recent months has been their critique of Obama supporters as people who just want stuff. This is an extraordinarily bizarre view of politics which lends itself to criticism in many different ways.
