Voices in his head telling him to write books, angry outbreaks? Uh oh, according to Wayne LaPierre of the NRA last week, Mr. O'Reilly had better be committed to a mental facility. Can't have these crazies out on the streets, after all, they might hurt someone.

Guy shoots up Navy yard after hearing voices = mental health issues. Guy claims to have spoken to God = Devout Christian. I don't get it.

Yes, I'm sure it was some sort of voice in his head which nobody else could hear, telling him to do whatever it is he was doing.

I'm not so sure it was "God," though.

Typical...The guy has a lot to say, but as always, the AP & Reuters cherry pick the things he says to make him sound crazy and people just eat it up. Baaaa Baaaa, enjoy it sheeple.

From what I have learned about Jesus he probably would not care much for Bill O'Reilly.

Yet not one word from the left or story in the STRIB about Chris Matthews apologizing to the world for the Trayvon Martin verdict on behalf of ALL white people.

tmauel "From what I have learned about Jesus he probably would not care much for Bill O'Reilly." Not quite sure who you're learning about Jesus from but Jesus loves EVERYBODY.

kimi08 - Considering the things that come out of his mouth (and titling a book "Killing Jesus") I think Bill O'Reilly has done the same thing as the news sources that cover him. Controversial is the whole business model for the far-out on both sides of the aisle (O'Reilly and Maher, for examples), because people watching out of love or hate both add to the bottom line.

By definition, any inspriration any devout believer (of any religion) receives is 'from God'. O'Reilly may certainly believe in his heart that it was divine inspriation, but he of all people should know the skepticism such beliefs raise when they are made public. Islamic terrorists say the exact same thing. Are they wrong? As a Christian, I believe God has given humans sentience and self-awareness, which some people believe is God's presence itself. Who are we to argue? As long as there is no harm done.

ericgus55 - yes, completely agree, I personally can't stand watching O'Reilly, or anything on Fox and MSNBC for that matter. In fact I've really been liking Al Jazeera...but when was the last time you heard any cherry picked comments from Maher, Olberman(ok, he's out of the biz but still..), Ed, Sharpton(There are zillions from him), Mathews(plenty of good clips from him too) etc. It just doesn't happen.
