Bill O'Reilly: Jesus Wouldn't Have Sponsored 'Draw Muhammad' Event

By    |   Thursday, 07 May 2015 08:46 PM

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly continued his criticism of the "Draw Muhammad" art show and cartoon contest that was the target of an attempted attack by two men spurred by the Islamic State (ISIS.)

On Thursday's "O'Reilly Factor,"  the host said he doesn't question the free speech rights of organizer Pamela Geller or her group the American Freedom Defense Initiative, but said it was wrong to insult every Muslim on the planet. Islam considers it blasphemous to produce an image of its founder.

The two assailants were shot dead after wounding a security guard, and, O'Reilly said, they "deserved what they got."

Still, he said, it doesn’t help the fight against jihadists to insult Muslims who are helping America in the fight.

"The goal of every decent person in the world should be to defeat the jihad. And in order to do that, you have to rally the world to the side of good, our side," O'Reilly said.

After playing a quote from the Rev. Franklin Graham saying it is wrong to insult a religion, O'Reilly agreed.

"Jesus would not have sponsored that event," O'Reilly said.
