Beto Calls for Stripping Churches of Tax-Exempt Status If They ‘Oppose Same-Sex Marriage’


Beto O’Rourke threatened the tax-exempt status of churches if they don’t support gay marriage.

“There can be no reward, no benefit, no tax break for anyone or any institution, any organization in America, that denies the full human rights and the full civil rights of every single one of us. So as president, we’re going to make that a priority, and we are going to stop those who are infringing upon the human rights of our fellow Americans.”

Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke says he’d strip churches of tax-exempt status if they don’t support same-sex marriage.

When the former Texas congressman was asked if religious institutions — “colleges, churches, charities” — should be stripped of tax-exempt status Thursday night by CNN anchor Don Lemon during the LGBTQ town hall, he immediately responded, “Yes.”

The crowd erupted in applause before O’Rourke further explained.

In O’Rourke’s “Plan to Pursue Equality for LGBTQ+ People and Ensure They Can Live Openly Without Fear of Discrimination or Violence,” he lists reversing the Trump administration’s “attempt to expand religious exemptions in order to enable discrimination or harm others.”

He adds, “Freedom of religion is a fundamental right, but it should not be used to discriminate.” More

I would suggest Beto read the constitution. Passing any law forcing a church to change its beliefs to meet a government standard is a classic violation.

Why don’t the LGBTQ people set up their own churches with their own religious rules and leave our churches alone?
