Bill O’Reilly Isn’t Comparing Himself To Jesus — Oh Wait, Yes He Is

The “Killing Jesus” author spoke at length about his Catholic faith with the Washington Post’s Sally Quinn in an interview published Friday, in which he criticized those in the “secular-progressive movement,” like liberal comedian Bill Maher, for ridiculing religion because “they don’t want to be judged.” Quinn noted that O’Reilly dedicated his book to “those who love their neighbors as themselves” and said she thought the “O’Reilly haters” would be surprised to see that dedication. “They’ll never read it, though,” he responded. “The O’Reilly haters are pretty much the people that have no idea what I do. And I like that — I mean, I don’t have any problem with people disliking me, and I’ll tell you why. I’m not comparing myself, but who was the most hated person in Judea 2,000 years ago?”

“Many, many loved him, but just as many despised him,” he added. “They’re always going to do that. If you speak your mind, you’re going to have some who like you and some who hate you.”
