O’Reilly: ‘Matter of Time’ Until Lawsuits Filed to Strip Churches, Religious Orgs of Tax-Exempt Status

On his Wednesday broadcast of “The O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel, host Bill O’Reilly warned about the potential of some churches and other religious organizations being threatened by the “far left” in America.

O’Reilly argued that some on the left see the church as an obstacle to abortion and a “libertine lifestyle” and said that potentially their tax-exempt status could be threatened by those elements.

“[I]t is just a matter of time before lawsuits are filed against churches and religious organizations trying to strip them of their tax-exempt status if they don’t toe the line on gay marriage and other progressive causes,” he said. “The churches really can’t afford these lawsuits and certainly can’t afford to lose their tax-exempt status. So you will see more and more religious concerns back down.”
