Oh God. I never thought I'd say this, but Bill O'Reilly was right about something. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit...

Bill-O had fundie Family Law Attorney Don Schweitzer on his show Wednesday to discuss the California Marriage Decision. O'Reilly pressed Schweitzer to come up with "quantifiable examples" about how same-sex marriage would be harmful to California or even explain why he opposed marriage equality.

Schweitzer was unable to come up with any real reason- unless you count this winning answer- "because it's different."

Sounds like quality reasoning to me. Video after the jump...

Wow. O'Reilly actually did some decent interviewing. Now I'm going to go shower off the dirty feeling of agreeing with Bill-O...

Waymon, if the shower doesn't do it, try one or two Oxycontin. But only one or two.

Remember Mel Gibson when people still liked him?

In "Braveheart" the English king "Long Shanks" said this about governance. In this case it was a determination of which enemy would suffer most by a certain action:

"The trick to it is to find the good in every situation."

So, have a gargle and be happy, for it is evident that all are created equal.

People are going to go to the ballot box for a definition? Just like for that very successful ballot initiative to get people to stop saying "hopefully" instead of "I hope."

OK, that's just my dream ballot initiative.

Not that it matters. It'll just come down to tribalism as always. It's just not pretty to articulate something like that explicitly on TV anymore.

I've been liking Bill O'Reilly lately and Rupert Murdoch. They have been pretty good on Supporting Gay Marriage like most fair minded Americans.

I have to agree, I have been liking Bill O'Reilly lately too. At least he is trying to be "fair and balanced."

If I remember my inane television host history correctly, hasn't O'Reilly always been skeptical of the gay marriage opponents?

I'm not sure, but it's great that a big name like his at Fox News is pro same-sex marriage, or at least anti same-sex marriage bigotry.

This really says a lot.
What's the argument outside of SOME religous beleifs? um,,, we got nothing.
