‘Cowardice’: Coulter, O’Reilly Slam Christian Silence Against Liberal ‘Attacks’

Bill O’Reilly spent the entire first segment of his show tonight going off on “the war on Christianity.” He pivoted from literal attacks on Christians in Kenya and by ISIS to “verbal attacks against Christians” in the United States.

O’Reilly called out Bill Maher‘s “vicious behavior towards Christianity” in particular before focusing on Indiana and the pizza place that was forced to close down over threats after comments about not catering gay weddings.

And what bothered both O’Reilly and guest Ann Coulter is how all this is happening without any religious leaders speaking out or pushing back. Coulter told O’Reilly “it’s Christianity that the left hates most of all” before complaining about Christian silence on these issues:

“The fact that these Christians would rather get praise from The New York Times and Nicholas Kristof by changing bedpans of Ebola patients in Nigeria, rather than stand up to The New York Times and fight against abortion, fight against these bullies… where are the Christians? And where are the Republicans?”

She told O’Reilly the owners of Memories Pizza “have more Christian courage than more Christian leaders and certainly the Republican Party.” O’Reilly, too, was troubled how there are “no clerics in America, zero, who put themselves out to defend the Christian faith.” Coulter called it “cowardice.”
