• With: David Silverman, President of American Atheists

    O'REILLY: This is so unreasonable you are so unreasonable.

    SILVERMAN: No, it's not unreasonable.

    O'REILLY: It's frightening.

    SILVERMAN: I'm not unreasonable at all.

    (CROSSTALK)

    SILVERMAN: I'm saying the government has to be fair. The government has to not take sides. Everybody is equal. Everybody has the same rights.

    O'REILLY: It's a federal holiday. Why don't you get your -- off your butt and get it revoked? See how far you go?

    SILVERMAN: I won't get enough votes (ph).

    O'REILLY: Of course you don't. Your view is insane.

    SILVERMAN: No, it's not.

    O'REILLY: Can you celebrate Christmas without being a Christian.

    SILVERMAN: Actually you can celebrate Christmas without being a Christian by force because you can't go to work, you can't get your mail, you can't go to the bank.

    O'REILLY: You can't go to work.

    SILVERMAN: No, you can't.

    O'REILLY: Yes you can.

    SILVERMAN: Oh really? Are you going to be working on Christmas?

    O'REILLY: I don't work on Christmas.

    SILVERMAN: 99 percent of the country doesn't either it's a federal holiday.

    O'REILLY: You and your merry band of fascists.

    SILVERMAN: Fascists.

    O'REILLY: You get it revoked.

    SILVERMAN: You called me a Fascist.

    O'REILLY: Absolutely.

    SILVERMAN: I am a patriot, sir.

    O'REILLY: You are a fascist.

    SILVERMAN: I am a patriot taking the craziest notion that everybody in this country is equal and the government has to treat everybody equally fairly. That's Fascism?

    O'REILLY: Banish Christmas trees.

    SILVERMAN: Did I not say banish Christmas trees.

    O'REILLY: From the public square. That's what you do and that's what you want.

    SILVERMAN: That's not what I do. Stop telling me what I do. We demand equality from the government and it's our constitutional right and you should be demanding it along with me.

    O'REILLY: Your equality is assured. Nobody infringing on your equality.

    SILVERMAN: Really? We'll all be taking Darwin day off next year.

    (CROSSTALK)

    SILVERMAN: By force. It's a national holiday now.

    O'REILLY: Take Winter Solstice off and knock yourself out nobody is going to stop you.

    SILVERMAN: Right. You won't. But I also have to take off Christmas because it's a mandated federal holiday. Just like the Fourth of July.

    O'REILLY: You run this organization, right? You run this atheist organization.

    SILVERMAN: I run American Atheists.

    O'REILLY: Keep it open.

    SILVERMAN: No, we do. It will be open on Christmas day.
