Hi I'm Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight -- talent too intense issues in the culture war.
That is the subject of this evening's talking points memo there is no question.
That's secular progressives emboldened by the Obama presidency are trying.
To change this country and very significant ways opposed to that change -- many conservatives and in -- traditional Americans who see that progressive vision.
Debates very intense with the media pretty much always siding with the secular progressive forces.
Right now many in the press are openly hostile.
To the conservative point of view.
Traditional Americans must make their case in very persuasive ways in order to win -- day.
Two examples first abortion.
According to Fox News opinion dynamics poll in 1997.
Not that long ago.
40% of Americans describe themselves as pro life 50% half the country said.
They were pro choice but fourteen years later that had completely turned around 50% of Americans put themselves in the pro life category.
While just 42% say they were pro choice so how and why did that happen.
Number one science.
Establish a DNA is present upon conception.
So the pro abortion people can no longer set a human presence.
Is not affected.
And if you destroyed -- a human presence.
You'd better -- -- pretty darn good reason for doing so.
That is if you want to be a civilized society.
Second -- Pro life forces did not did not.
Link abortion to sit.
They largely kept theology out of it.
And so we now see states like North Dakota Arkansas.
Passing laws to better protect unborn babies and it would be more states that do that.
That's a huge win for traditional forces in America.
But on the gay marriage front too far different story.
Here's what I -- the Megyn Kelly last week.
The compelling argument is on the side.
Of homosexuals that's -- the compelling argument is we're Americans we just want to be treated like everybody else that's a compelling argument.
And to deny that you've got to have a very strong argument on the other side the I didn't -- -- And been able to do anything there -- the bottom there.
Now that's analysis essentially correct anti gay marriage forces.
Forces not individuals forces.
Have not seized upon 1 central.
Persuasive argument like the human DNA component.
And so those who oppose gay marriage are scattered all over the place and many of them are using the Bible.
As their -- -- to reject homosexual nuptials that's a loser all day every day in our secular court system which I believe.
Is largely hostile.
To religious expression.
A strong argument against gay marriage that it expands marriage opportunity.
To just one group.
That -- -- -- all others.
Who may want to marry under different circumstances.
Also traditional marriage has been the societal stabilized.
And in many states is favored by the majority of the folks.
So if you grant homosexual.
Civil unions as whereby they get the legal rights of marriage.
Then the states.
Should decide the not actual issue for themselves.
Bottom line the federal government has no.
To impose gay marriage on the nation.
He's a strong market.
