    ‘More intense,’ huh? Does that mean those of us who survived heterosexual child abuse are not ‘legitimate’ victims?

  2. I think he means it’s a Roman Catholic Priest problem….

    This is a Fox news twit…what would you expect from him??Bill should check out the real truth..then he or Fox couldn’t handle the truth…

  4. Seriously, what do the British, the Irish, and the Europeans think of Americans? You must be choking on the stupidity shown over here! But certain politicians and sheeple are adamant that they do NOT want to be like Europe! lol

    1. Personally I think the general american population are lazy, stupid and fat. They are frighteningly patriotic and far too interested in what other people get up to in bed. It isn’t exactly a surprise that America is one big FAIL.

      1. Speak for yourself. I’m a Brit and love the American people. And I am far from the only one. Sure the government stinks, but so does the UK’s for that.

        A little strongly worded, but the one bit I agree on is the frightening patriotism. Have pride, sure, but the impression the media gives out of US patriotism is that it should be prized, you should do ANYTHING for your country, whether it is right or not.

        I also feel a disappointing anti-intellectualism in American policies these days. This unfortunately leads to bigots and idiots making statements like the one in the article.

        Sure, it isn’t representative of all the people, but the people need to stand up and oust their unrepresentative representatives if that is the case.

  5. To get a flavour of the level that O’Reilly functions at, see “youtube” clips of his interviews with Richard Dawkins.

    Bill is 100% correct. Such problem never will be solved. That’s for sure.

    1. Wrong!
      Bill’s ‘statistics’ come from an individual called Paul Cameron. He was evicted from the American Psychological Association because his ideology did not match the ethical standards of the organisation, to put it mildly.
      This person is so right wing, he makes Genghis Khan look positively liberal. He has written papers about how homosexuality is linked to pedophilia, shorter life spans, physical and mental illness, and God knows what else. He claims it is the result of research, but to say such is an insult to the very notion of research and the scientific method, which requires one to form an opinion based on collected evidence. Paul Cameron comes to a hateful conclusion and somehow finds evidence to match his conclusion.
      His name so shameful and discredited, that even those who agree with him will not use it when quoting his words. Which only makes disproving these claims harder.

  7. Religious right wing groupies continue to bring up the same old ‘statistics’, no matter how outdated they are, no matter how often they or their authors get discredited, no matter how often their own heterosexual contributors engage in pedophilia. They continue to say the same things over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.
    Seriously, why do groups like the SPLC even bother going on shows like Bill O’Reilly? All it does is give these IQ rejects another opportunity to broadcast their utter contempt for LGBT people for the whole world to know.

  8. Funny – I’ve never heard anyone who makes the silly claim that pedophilia is a “homosexual problem”, say that rape is a “str8 male problem.” But by the same twisted logic . . .

  9. When pedophilia is mentioned to men they think of men having sex with boys, even though the very large majority of sex offences committed on children are male on female (majority uncle on neice). I sometimes wonder if this is some bigoted sexist issue, where straight men like O’Riley see females as second class citizens, therefore sex abuse on a female is less significant! It’s wrong no matter what the gender! Maybe some men need to realise that! It’s also true that when media reports on this issue it’ll say the “gay man” as aposed to “the man” it would show more if they said “the heterosexual man”

  10. “Critics have gone so far as to say that O’Reilly didn’t understand the claims that he was defending.”

    Bill O’Reilly talking out of his ass… how surprising.

    The American Taliban strikes again!

    This is what happens when public education is gutted.

  12. James Savik 29 Aug 2012, 8:29am

    How does that explain all of the girls molested by men… in far greater numbers than boys?

    Male lesbians?

  13. O’Reilly can always be relied on to take the most right-wing, hateful stand on any subject. Fox has a large and gullible audience who see him as the voice of reason. Pathetic.

  14. What a knob! Statistics show that straight men are more likely to the peadophiles and not gay men.

    Bill who? Let me know when someone with an IQ higher than an amoeba makes spuriously controversial comment, then perhaps I may waste a few minutes commenting.

  16. Adults who have sex with adults are straight/gay/bi. Adults who have sex with children are paedophiles – simple.

    Sick of all the sexism around little girls being abused, no one seems to care because they are too busy using the cases if abused boys to ‘prove’ their homophobia. Poor kids are being abused twice.

  17. Well done O’Reilly ! That’s how it does ! Keep talking the good stuff, we need you to distance away the moderate and intelligent people from the Republican Party.

    1. So birds of a feather flock together, So, Felipe when was the last time you molested a little girl, your daughter last night, your niece yesterday perhaps. My words have the same fact finding as bill O’ craphead so it must be true. You are a pedophile.

  18. And who told you that, Billy O’Reilly???

    That invisible sky fairy again probably.
