Fox News host Bill O’Reilly suspects that demonic possession may be responsible for Caroline Kennedy’s support of reproductive rights for women and that conservative Catholic Cardinal Timothy Dolan “should have performed an exorcism” on her when he had the chance at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) earlier this year.

During his Monday night show, O’Reilly invited Father Jonathan Morris to explain why he told the hosts of Fox & Friends that it was “silly” to be “so angry about this war on Christmas.”

“What I was trying to say was it’s important for us to speak out but not to get upset to the point in which our Christmas, my Christmas become all about being angry at people who are not living in Christianity,” Morris explained to O’Reilly.

“I believe that Christianity in this country is under assault,” O’Reilly argued. “I believe that the forces of secularism want to destroy as much of the Christian tradition in this country as they can… So, we have someone like Caroline Kennedy at the Democratic Convention go up there on the stage — Caroline Kennedy — identify herself as a Catholic woman and then launch into launch into a pro-abortion spiel. Not one Catholic bishop — not one — spoke out against Ms. Kennedy in public. Not one.”

Morris pointed out that Cardinal Dolan had gone to the Democratic National Convention and prayed for abortion to be outlawed.

“Dolan’s a good man,” O’Reilly admitted. “Here’s what he should have done because he was at the Democratic Convention. They were there at the same time. He should have done an exorcism on her.”

“Come on, Bill,” Morris laughed.

“It would have got everybody’s attention and then [The Exorcist star] Linda Blair could have been there,” O’Reilly added.

“That’s probably why you’re not the cardinal or Archbishop of New York,” Morris replied.

The Catholic Church has recently made an effort to step up the number of exorcisms by training more priests to perform the ritual.
