4:19 am
world who should understand the vulnerability of being a minority being somebody that maybe others don't understand or relate to the vulnerability about work and jobs and your own -- be able to live your life as you see fit, it's the gay community. >> exactly. >> for them to turn -- this is for, as i say to every other gay person out there, especially young people. for you to turn into what we have been fighting against for generations, my activism began with act up which was agay group dealing with aids issues in the 80s. for me to turn around in the 21st century and see that this is what we were fighting for so we could condemn people who were different, it is the antithesis of what every civil rights movement was about. >> how were you treated as a prominent member of the community, somebody who is gay, and yet you're taking this position? >> it's the natural position.
4:20 am
there is a lot of fear in the gay community, if you do speak up in this regard -- this is our natural position, of course. because we are effectively whether you're liberals or libertarian, this is about being able to live lives as we see fit. as minorities. i think when you see a mob operating, there is fear, and you tend to retreat. and we saw this with chick-fil-a. everything came to their defense. the gay liberals have turned into bullies when our work is to stop that kind of behavior. if i can serve as an example of being able to give permission in a way or serve as an example saying standing up for our values and what we believe in is what we need to be doing. to defend, especially those who are under attack like christians is what our job should be. >> when you run for something call me. because i will vote for you. i hope you do. >> we've got to stand up, this is about the rights for everyone

4:26 am
heritage and life choices. it just concerned me it was in a dorm. >> did you feel indimidated by this at first? >> yes, i did. >> so where did this come from? >> sorry, i didn't hear you? >> where did this actual posting come from? who put it up there? >> it was the ra in the hall in the dorm. >> the resident assistant there. this campaign was started by three university of san francisco professors here. you then start taking pictures. you put it on your facebook page. what were some of the terrible things that people wrote you back? >> well, initially it was a personal facebook post, then campus reform reached out to me. then it went viral overnight. from it being viral on a national level i got tons of cyber bullying. i read that because i'm white i have never experienced oppression before so i deserve the cyber bullying i received.
4:27 am
and it really hurt at first. but after a while, i just realized these people don't know who i am. if they do want to know my opinion their welcome to talk to me. >> civil discourse would be better than bullying. nobody deserves this. is the school asking for these to be taken down and do you want them to be taken down? >> i didn't initially post it to start a war on the board or demand that it be taken down. i just posted it because i was concerned that the presentation of the board was more concerning to me than the material. but people are turning this into something more than it really is. and i think that it's time for my campus to come together over our similarities rather than our differences and begin to earn mutual respect for one another before we begin to talk about our differences. >> you know that is a kind response here that you're offering your university. we reached out for comment, we have yet to hear from the

5:01 am
>> they started jumping up and down running for their live saids. where they rur going to is where the gun shots were coming from. >> out of 800 students only 200 are aaccounted for. al qaeda has stormed a prison and freeing 300 inmates. two guards, five inmates killed. things have infencified as saudi arabia began air strikes. developing now. double overtime. secretary of state john kerry back in marathon tatalks in switzerland over a possible nuclear deal with iran. the negotiations are now underway for the day, but still no deal. this coming as the white house repeats the threat they are ready to walk away any time. the foreign ministers for china
5:02 am
france and russia have already left without a deal. secretary kerry says he plans to leave switzerland later today. the hatchet wielding thug picked the wrong store to rob. that's the owner of the convenience store slamming his face into the gum display and wrestling him to the ground. the wife gets into to it to hitting him with a baseball bat. they have arrested the 31-year-old who is a notorious criminal around that area. those are your headlines. >> wow. >> thank you, ainsley. >> self-serve justice there. thanks, very good job. this is one of the great moments. this is a time when we get bill o'reilly on the show via the telephone to tell us what is happening in the world. you were just watching. >> good morning. >> hi, how you doing. >> we're talking about what is happening in indiana as well as what the governor of arkansas did about amending their act. are you surprised this whole
5:03 am
religious freedom law has gotten this type of traction, caused this type of national uproar? >> i'm not surprised at all. if you just link everything together we just heard about the terror attack in kenya on christians. you got two things in play. you've got the muslim extremists jihadists they want to kill christians. they're doing it all over the world. and then in the united states and western europe, you have a civil war between the secular progressive movement and the traditional religious people. so it's in both cases christians are targets. so i'm not surprised. and -- but, you know, there is a lot of cautionary things here. a lot of things in play that i think people should know about. it's not as simple as black and white. >> no, it's not. let me ask you this, indiana is looking at some clarifications to try to alleviate the debate and lack of civil discourse
5:04 am
that's going on right now. you've got a pizza place in indiana a mom and pop pizzeria that's getting death threats and forced to close down because they wouldn't based on their religious rights and believes be able to serve pizza at a gay wedding. what are your thoughts? >> the totalitarian left is pretty much out of control in america. that's because the media generally speaking sympathizes with the fascists. al and so if you're against abortion, you're not a person of conscious sticking up for the unborn no. you're against women. you're declaring war on women's reproductive rights. this is how the media spins it. if you're against gay marriage because you believe in scripture, it's not that you're a religious person whose belief system should be respected. you're a homeophobe a bigot.
5:05 am
this is put out by the mainstream media so the fanatics in the progressive move. they know they can get their attacks unchallenged in the media. unchallenged. that puts a tremendous amount of pressure on a person being attacked. believe me i know that. personally. okay. but i have a television show. that i can fight back with. the pizzeria people have nothing to fight back with. here's the final point, where is the leadership on the religious front in america helping people of faith? where are these people? >> that's such a good point. we had a long time gay activist on. she makes the argument that gay groups are the last people who should be joining the mob against people. >> it remains shocking that you sit back and you watch this
5:06 am
frenzy like a wolf pack going after survivors in a way with like, a pizza shop. and if there's anyone in the world who should understand the vulnerability of being a minority being somebody that maybe others don't understand or relate to, the vulnerability about work and jobs and your own -- be able to live your life as you see fit, it's the gay community. >> do you see some irony there? >> you know, i'm -- i understand what tammy is saying and i -- but i don't want to demonize the gay community. i think this is a very few people who are just not gay, they're tied in to a lot of very far left causes. but i have some advice for the pizzeria people and the people who the media runs to and tries to get a provocative sound bite from. don't say anything. this is not your war okay? let that -- let the defense of
5:07 am
religious people come from the leadership in the traditional communities. again that is really lacking. i'm catholic, okay? i'm catholic. the catholic church opposes gay marriage. is there one catholic cleric in the united states who is visible in putting fort that point of view? name one. there isn't any. >> that's a great point. >> so people -- you have to be careful, because gay people in america, most of them have been abused in their lives. >> right. >> have been bullied as children. and they're very sensitive to the fact they don't want to be singled out for discrimination. everyone should understand that's a valid point of view. where it goes crazy is that the extremists in that area take the reality and start to hurt other people with it who are innocent. i think it's a complicated situation.
5:08 am
i'm just absolutely furious that i, one of the biggest sinners on the planet, have to be in the leadership of defending people of faith. i should not have to do that. >> right. >> there's no one else. you know jeffers in dallas does it once in a while. >> here we are in holy week. and there you are "killing jesus" on fox news this night. it's coming to a head. this had almost 4 million viewers on nat geo what can you tell us? >> on the two views almost 5 million viewers. i discount the second one the press does. they don't want the power of cable to be out there. anyway, look i am proud of the fox news channel number one. because they understand that most americans by the polls, 80%, all right, have an
5:09 am
affection for judeo christian tradition. this film is not a religious film. it's a historical these things happened. the left, the atheists don't want you to know what jesus's messages was. they want to point to kritschristians as being oppressive. we have a scene where jesus jumped into where a woman was going to be stoned to death. we put that scene in to show that christianity is not an oppressive movement, it's protective. i'm proud of fox news for running it on good friday and easter. if you didn't see it i hope you will look in. you guys know, it's a quality production. >> it sure is. >> it's a very moving experience
5:10 am
to watch it. children should watch it. >> what a good week to use it. i love that you say christianity is a protective religion. >> we show how people were being abused by the romans, temple authorities. exploited. they were doing everything to keep them down. here comes a carpenter who is poor himself, who says enough. and again i'd like the christian leadership to watch this movie and say you know what? there was a leader there. there was somebody in the face of the romans, in the face of the temple authorities. what am i doing? sitting in my rectory in my robes saying nothing. of when the christian community in america -- >> he got crucified and maybe people are worried about the ramification and blow back. >> they're why they're not doing anything. they're afraid. they're afraid.
5:11 am
if you're afraid -- get out of the business, you know what i mean? become an accountant. >> we'll see you in the lunchroom today. >> good call. >> we'll see you in the halls. >> a call to action. bill o'reilly thanks for being with us. >> and his slot on good friday. all right. be "killing jesus." coming up ahead on our show in the last 15 minutes. heart stopping moments caught on camera an suv slams into a school bus packed with kids. the incredible ending to this story you don't want to miss. remember when hillary clinton said this about her e-mail scandal? >> i thought using one device would be simpler. obviously it hasn't worked out that way. >> nope, not so simple. turns out it wasn't exactly true either. she had an ipad as well. our next guest said she can't help. it's just the clinton way of deception. ♪ ♪ at mfs, we believe in the power of active management. every day, our teams collaborate around

5:16 am
in a document obtained by the associated press it talked about an ipad. our next guest isn't surprised by any of this. he's watched the clintons for a long time and he says deception is baked into the cake. you follow the clintons for decades or two. you're not shocked by thisment this has the odor of deja vu. >> this is how it goes. to think this is her first comment on a big public issue in her new campaign and she begins with a lie. the significance of the lie is not a minor one. it is the fact that when she said i used one for convenience, in fact she was using more than one device. we know at least two thanks to the associated press. what else don't we know? she said she did this for convenience, but i think it's pretty clear that she did it to keep it secret. and obviously, from congress, any foi from the press would not be able to get to the documents.
5:17 am
i think it's also to keep a secret from the white house. there are a lot of people from the state department she didn't hire, she didn't want the white house knowing what she was doing all the time. she's juggling devices. then comes outs and squezays i did it for convenience. it wasn't for convenient. it didn't comport to what she was doing as secretary of state. the press is angry because it has filed a number of freedom of information requests. and told there was no documents. there was no documents because she was hiding them. >> when you hire a team of it experts to install a server in your home you're not doing that for convenience. >> she has sensitive information on there we know the russians and iranians are experts at hacking. how many documents did she lose? they were watching her in real time? we have no idea. >> you've watched the clintons
5:18 am
in american politics from the beginning, does this stick? >> there's a dent already in her armor in the swing states. polls showing she's down a few points. i think the most significant finding so far -- in several of the key swing states, one poll has shown 50% of the people think she's not honest. that fits the narrative of the clintons going back to when bill was in the white house. there is always a suspicion they're not telling you the whole truth or telling you something where you have to go root for the whole truth. i think that's a terrible way to begin a campaign. it's likely to get worse during the campaign. it just strikes me and shows she's been out of real political politics and she's come back the same way. nothing has changed. here we go again. i think it's a terrible way to begin a campaign. for voters, if this is what you want, if you want a government you can't trust, you start out that way we get the government we deserve >> we certainly do.
