First Bill O'Reilly, now Glenn Beck back Gay Rights (video)

Glenn BeckImage via WikipediaSomebody check the weather report for Hell, because it must be getting pretty icy down there. Two of the right's loudest mouthpieces are now stating for the record that they have no problem with the gays wanting equal rights. About three weeks ago, commenting on Dan Choi's discharge, Bill O'Reilly's giant forehead told Jay Leno that he is in favor of repealing DADT. Now Right-Wing, Nut-Job/Cry Baby, Glenn Beck tells Bill O'Reilly that does not oppose same-sex marriage (via The Huffington Post):
Why doesn't Glenn Beck cover gay marriage? Because he doesn't believe it's a threat to the nation.
In a conversation with Bill O'Reilly on why he avoids culture war issues, Beck admitted that he doesn't think marriage should be a political issue.
"Honestly, I think we have bigger fish to fry," Beck said. "You can argue about abortion or gay marriage or whatever all you want. The country is burning down...I don't think marriage, that the government actually has anything to do with...that is a religious right."
"Do you believe gay marriage is a threat to the country in any way?" O'Reilly asked.
"A threat to the country? No, I don't," Beck said, laughing, adding mockingly, "Will the gays come and get us?"
Beck quoted Thomas Jefferson: "If it neither breaks my leg nor picks my pocket, what difference is it to me?"
