Fox Business host John Stossel joined Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday night to tell host Bill O’Reilly that Christianity is not under attack.

“Your ‘war on Christianity’ — you’re just a 10-foot-tall crybaby,” Stossel told O’Reilly. “It’s not so bad. Christians aren’t being killed.”

“Not yet,” O’Reilly jumped into say.

“And not in America, and they’re not going to be,” Stossel said.

O’Reilly then claimed that Christians are “verbally being killed.”

“You shouldn’t be diminished because you believe a certain way,” O’Reilly said. “Aren’t you outraged by that?”

“What’s diminished?” Stossel asked in response, adding that Christians make up a majority in the U.S. “You’ve won.”

“It’s not a matter of winning. It’s a matter of respect,” O’Reilly replied.

O’Reilly lamented that “secularists” want “unfettered abortion” and “gay marriage.”

“I’m a secularist, and I don’t want unlimited abortion,” Stossel said. “I think you paint with too broad a brush.”

O’Reilly then noted that Stossel is not a “secular progressive.”
