Fox News host Bill O’Reilly sees the war on terrorism as a Holy War and wants “every cleric in this country” to contact the White House to say “enough” and to tell Obama to “get in gear” against ISIS. Pastor Robert Jeffress and Father Gerald Murray were guests on Tuesday night’s The O’Reilly Factor to discuss this emerging Holy War and the lack of a moral leader to stand up against radical Islam. Father Murray said:
Let’s face it, we don’t have to wait for the pope to tell us what to do and the United States of America is the moral leader in the world. Where’s the moral leadership here?
Pastor Jeffress added that he believes in the prophecies of the Bible and that things are going to get much worse. Jeffress proposed to O’Reilly and his viewers to contact the White House to demand that the president do whatever it takes to obliterate ISIS.

Bill, I believe in the prophesies of the Bible, that things are gonna get worse before the Lord returns. But that is no excuse for fatalism. And I believe that Christians ought to be on the forefront of fighting this evil. And this is unmitigated evil, burning people alive. And listen, and that is why I, tonight, I am calling on Christians everywhere, Catholics and Protestants together, to join with our Jewish friends and demand that this president do whatever is necessary, including boots on the ground, to eradicate this cancer of ISIS and radical Islam before it destroys us.
O’Reilly agreed with the idea of every cleric in the United States discussing this threat with their congregation this weekend. He said,
I want every pastor, every priest, every rabbi, and every imam to email me personally and tell me you’re going to do that. And I’ll read as many on the air that I can.
