O’Reilly Blames God for Sexual Harassment Accusations

Former TV commentator Bill O’Reilly, bedeviled by assorted sexual harassment charges, now blames God for his problems.

So he says, “You know, am I mad at God? Yeah, I’m mad at him. I wish I had more protection.” (http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv/bill-o-reilly-blames-god-sexual-harassment-allegations-article-1.3584246)

Adam could’ve told him that wouldn’t work. “Well, gee, Lord! The woman that you gave me, she gave me the forbidden fruit, and I did eat.” No dice, Adam: you’re out of the Garden of Eden.

O’Reilly has paid out $32 million to settle accusations made against him by several women, his co-workers at Fox News.

If we assume the charges aren’t true, we must also assume that a number of women conspired to tell these whopping lies about him so they could get their hands on his money. There aren’t many people who believe that. But even if that were so, then the blame ought to fall on the false accusers, not on God: who, having endowed us with free will, made it possible for us to disobey His commandments. Would O’Reilly rather God had created us without free will?

False accusations of this or that are an everyday tool of politics in our glorious 21st century. Is that God’s fault? Or ours? And He has, after all, given us a Savior who can take away our sins–without taking away our free will.

Bill O’Reilly isn’t the first to blame God for his problems, and he won’t be the last.

    Bill is a chump. Never like any of his programs, but his time at Fox News really swelled his head.

    This is news to me. Although I’d heard of the accusations by female co-workers against O’Reilly, I hadn’t heard of blaming God as his excuse. While I surely can’t say whether or not these women are being truthful, I’m going to go out on a limb here: Fox News females – all stiletto heels and mini skirt wearing model types – most likely are making healthy salaries without needing O’Reilly’s money. I’m certainly not defending him. I don’t know the facts. But I will say this – O’Reilly, if you’re blaming God for ANYTHING, you need to repent!

    $32 million for what? If he was innocent why pay then a cent? He says he sleeps like a baby at night because his conscience is clear. So why pay our millions for something you are completely innocent of? – does not compute.

    It seems like the mighty are falling, both from the Left and from the Right. If O’Reilly was misbehaving, he needs to take responsibility and move on. If not, then he needs to clear his name. I don’t see how the Almighty enters into the matter.
