"Therefore let him who thinks he stand take heed that he does not fall" -1Cor 10:12 When I left class on Tuesday night I had no idea that my view of one of America's top tv commentators was about to change. However, it did. As I rode down the highway I turned my XM Radio to Fox News to hear the O'Reilly Factor as I normally do. However what I heard on this night stunned me. In fact I assumed I must be misunderstanding what O'Reilly was saying. Was this man actually claiming that Shawn Hornbeck liked being a hostage? And for what reason? According to O'Reilly it was because he did not want to go to school. I rode in stunned silence. How in the world could someone believe, much less say on national tv, such a thing? Why would a child enjoy being kept from his/parents, abused, and threatend for four years? Then I heard that O'Reilly went on Greta Van Susteren's show and said the same thing. The following is a transcript of that interview...Prepare to be sick. Disturbed yet? I was, and I still am. This has bothered me even more after watching Oprah's interview with Hornbeck and his parents. It was very clear that this boy missed his family and it was very clear that this boy has been badly abused both physically and mentally. Bill O'Reilly has crossed a very serious line here. When he actually suggests that a victim of a serious crime "liked" it, he has gone too far. I don't care if it is this Hornbeck kid, the Ownby kid, an old lady who is victim of a purse snatcher, a woman who is raped, or a store clerk who is killed for $40.00. Bill O'Reilly has stepped over the line. For this reason I, and I know others on the internet, are now boycotting Bill O'Reilly. I will not watch nor listen to his radio show again. He has lost a regular viewer/listener. I encourage all people of good conscience to join me. We need to send a message to this man that such stunts will not be tolerated. These two acts by O'Reilly, on his show and on Van Susteren's show, have undone all the good O'Reilly has done trying to get predators off the streets. The above statements are signs of pride and gross insensitivity. For example. O'Reilly, without any evidence, stated: "Authorities actually say that he taunted his own parents on his website" That is a lie. Shawn Hornbeck stated that he put those messages on his parents website hoping that they would figure out who he was. He was, in a way, reaching out to them. O'Reilly had no right to say anything he did since he had no proof to back it up. What a sick man! Victims of crime need to be believed not told they were enjoying it!
