On The Radio Factor, Bill O'Reilly continued to warn of "a concentrated effort by the secular progressive movement to diminish any kind of spirituality in the public marketplace." O'Reilly was referring to the so-called "war" on Christmas, which he feels is part of a broader agenda to enact "secular progressive programs like legalization of narcotics, euthanasia, abortion at will, gay marriage."

During the December 19 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, The Radio Factor, Bill O'Reilly continued to warn of "a concentrated effort by the secular progressive movement to diminish any kind of spirituality in the public marketplace," a movement he has previously claimed is behind the so-called "war" on Christmas. O'Reilly feels this "war" is part of a broader agenda to enact "secular progressive programs like legalization of narcotics, euthanasia, abortion at will, gay marriage." He further asserted that "secular progressives made great inroads over the past five years" and "if you don't believe that ... you're a moron." According to O'Reilly: "I have proven it [the existence of the secular progressive movement], and others have proven it over and over and over again."

From the December 19 broadcast of Westwood One's The Radio Factor with Bill O'Reilly:

O'REILLY: Okay, I'm going to bring you up to date on the latest Christmas stuff. And again, this isn't about saying "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays." It's about the culture war, a concentrated effort by the secular progressive movement to diminish any kind of spirituality in a public marketplace. Now, they're never going to admit that, but that is the agenda. And this stems back to "Under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance, "In God We Trust" on the coinage, swearing in to say the truth in a court of law, the Ten Commandments displayed in courthouses, and on, and on, and on, and on. OK. That's what this is all about.

And the secular progressives made great inroads over the past five years in demanding that stores, other commercial enterprises, towns, villages not say "Merry Christmas" or permit Christmas displays of any kind. And look, if you don't know that, if you don't believe that, don't listen to this program. You're a moron, and I don't say it with all due respect. If you don't know what's in play, you're never gonna know, because I have proven it, and others have proven it over and over and over again. You know, the Christians and the Jews are not the ones that started the lawsuits, you know. The people who celebrate Judeo-Christian tradition were fine with putting up menorahs and crèches and everything. The ACLU [American Civil Liberties Union] started the lawsuits. OK? Got it? Everybody, got it?
