Are Christians held to an unfair higher standard?
Bestselling author and TV pundit Bill O’Reilly has been ridiculed, criticized and openly mocked after writing a Christian book. What’s going on?

She is offended by O’Reilly’s statement that Paul was “a former Pharisee who became a convert to Christianity.” No, claims Moss. “Paul was not a Christian; he was a Jew who moved from one branch of Judaism to another. He never uses the word Christian. It seems that the early members of the Jesus movement referred to themselves as followers of ‘the Way.’” That would seem to be splitting hairs. Perhaps she would like to debate how many angels can dance on the tip of a needle.
Of course, O’Reilly knows controversy sells books and has fanned the flames – claiming that the media is targeting him because of his faith.
But even though he protesteth too much, one wonders. Why didn’t he come under such criticism when his topics were merely conservative politics and dead presidents?
