Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly says supporters of gay marriage have offered a "compelling argument," while opponents have done little more than “thump the Bible.”

"The compelling argument is on the side of homosexuals,” O’Reilly stated on his show “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday.

“That's where the compelling argument is. We're Americans, we just want to be treated like everybody else,” he told his guest, fellow Fox News host Megyn Kelly.

Story continues below.



“That is a compelling argument. And to deny that, you've got to have a very strong argument on the other side and the other side hasn't been able to do anything but thump the Bible.”

Gay marriage is an issue best left to the states, O’Reilly said. “I support civil unions — I always have — the gay marriage thing, I don't feel that strongly about it one way or the other.

“I live in New York, New York has it. I’m just fine with it,” O’Reilly added. “I want all Americans to be happy.”
