Great minds of conservatism
December 15, 2006
This Bill O’Reilly quote has already become an Internet legend, but I’m going to feature it anyway, if only for the sheer WTF-ness of it all. Confronted with a guest who, citing science and research, kept pointing out that a child raised by a same-sex couple suffers no psychological harm from the fact, O’Reilly asked “why wouldn’t nature then make it that anybody could get pregnant by eating a cupcake?”
To paraphrase Raymond Chandler, that’s the kind of question guaranteed to knock the keenest mind for a loop. Only a halfwit could even begin to think in the terms needed to frame a response.
