Reason #1,382,967 Why I Hate Bill O’Reilly with a Red Hot Fiery Passion the Likes of Which Have Never Before Been Seen This Side of Hades

Media Matters has the scoop:
CALLER: […]When I was growing up -- I'm Jewish, but I was not in a very Jewish area. There were some Jews there but, I was kind of -- grew up with a resentment because I felt that people were trying to convert me to Christianity --


O'REILLY: All right. Well, what I'm tellin' you, [caller], is I think you're takin' it too seriously. You have a predominantly Christian nation. You have a federal holiday based on the philosopher Jesus. And you don't wanna hear about it? Come on, [caller] -- if you are really offended, you gotta go to Israel then. I mean because we live in a country founded on Judeo -- and that's your guys' -- Christian, that's my guys' philosophy. But overwhelmingly, America is Christian. And the holiday is a federal holiday honoring the philosopher Jesus. So, you don't wanna hear about it? Impossible.

And that is an affront to the majority. You know, the majority can be insulted, too. And that's what this anti-Christmas thing is all about.
There is so much wrong with that, I don’t even know where to begin. So instead I’ll just end with this: America was not founded on Judeo-Christian principals, but on the Rule of Law. If you don’t like that, Bill, you can go to Israel, Islamabad, Istanbul, Iceland, or back to whatever putrescent rock it was you crawled out from under. I don’t care where—just fucking go, you sanctimonious, obnoxious, bloviating prick.
