Fox News anchor Bill Oâ€™Reilly, who is writing an upcoming book titled â€śKilling Jesus,â€ť proclaimed on his program Wednesday night that â€śa lot of the Bible is allegorical,â€ť and the New Testament Gospels contradict themselves.
Oâ€™Reilly made the remarks during an interview with â€śTouched by an Angelâ€ť star Roma Downey and her husband Mark Burnett, executive producers of â€śThe Bibleâ€ť TV miniseries which begins this Sunday night on the History Channel.
Downey, who portrays Jesusâ€™ mother Mary in the series, opened the interview by declaring her solid faith in Holy Scripture.
â€śBringing the Bible to the screen came with a huge responsibility and one we took very seriously,â€ť Downey said. â€śWe had a great team of scholars and theologians helping us, making sure that we told these stories accurately and truthfully. Iâ€™ve been a believer my whole life, and that was very, very important to us. Something else...
All some people, who are on the edge, or who already have their doubts, needed to hear was, " the Bible contains contradictions, and you don't really believe that stuff, do you?". So many based their decisions upon what others have to say without doing one bit of investigative work...well, Bill O'Reilly said... I think it's interesting that rather than pinpointing any perceived problem areas, he just laid a blanket statement of doubt and moved on.

It is totally false to state that a true "romanist" or as the proper term Catholic denies that the Bible is infallible. I am Catholic and I have always believed the Bible is infallible in every word. I was taught by my parents and the teachers in religious education class that the Bible is infallible in every word.
