It looks like yet another Fox News host is attacking same-sex marriage to spin a story to fit their narrative.

Following a story by NBC News on Wednesday night about a polyamorous family living in Georgia, host of the "O'Reilly Factor" on Fox News, Bill O'Reilly called it the "logical progression" from same-sex marriage.

“You might remember I predicted this would happen in the beginning of the inclusive marriage movement. And I'm not saying that with any derisions … but it's a logical progression, when you want to include everyone under the banner of matrimony, that you're going to have this kind of stuff...I don't think it's healthy for the kids."

While there is no credible scientific evidence that shows same-sex marriage would lead to a polyamorous lifestyle, that doesn't seem to stop many in the right-wing media. Bill O'Reilly, like many other conservative talking heads, has taken note that country is shifting in the direction of supporting same-sex marriage and they are doing so quickly. With same-sex marriage support at an all time high in the United States, Republicans and conservative have been scrambling to come up with any defense against it they can, even it their reasoning has no credibility.
