Bill O'Reilly, proud patriot, proud American Catholic, proud advocate of "traditional" marriage ...
Is coming out of a nasty, nasty, nasty divorce.
I know this is none of my business.
But my family is none of his business either -- and yet he makes it his. My partner and I are both male and both denied full marriage equality. This injustice persists because of people like Bill O'Reilly who make it their business to make sure that we don't have the same rights as anyone else.
It's because our relationship is inferior to his.
Gawker has the whole, mind-blowing, shocking story:
Infidelity (both of them, allegedly).
A custody battle in which O'Reilly is said to have tampered with the court-appointed intermediary between him and his ex-wife.
Harassment of his wife after separation.
Traditional marriage! Traditional family values! Uh-huh.
The Gawker article charges that Bill O'Reilly has gone to extreme lengths to humiliate his ex-wife post-divorce, even arranging her to be reprimanded by Catholic church authorities for continuing to take communion despite the fact that their marriage has been dissolved.
This relationship is so superior to mine, ain't it?
So much better.
So much more deserving ...
