Tempers flare as Bill O’Reilly battles atheist over Christmas tree

In what began as a philosophical discussion over Christmas trees, emotions ran high as Fox News host Bill O’Reilly quickly clashed with David Silverman, President of American Atheists. Atheist organizations are challenging public displays of Christmas in Rhode Island and other areas of the country.

“Why are you messing around with my tradition,” O’Reilly asked. “Just leave it alone.”

Silverman said they are not messing around with anything, but instead are “stopping the government from preferring one religion over another.”

From that point, the discussion turned to the difference between a religion and a philosophy and a very heated exchange from both sides.
