Beto vows to strip churches of tax exempt status if they don’t change their beliefs on gay marriage

It’s tempting to dismiss a presidential zero-hoper such as Beto O’Rourke as a disgusting leftist clown.

After all, his latest stunt is to call for stripping churches of their tax exempt status if they don’t change their beliefs to match his on homosexual marriage.

Kid you not, following the headlines he garnered after vowing to grab guns, he’s now drawn some new ones with this:

Beto O’Rourke said he thinks that religious institutions should be stripped of their tax-exempt status if they oppose homosexuality.

While at a CNN candidate forum about gay and transgender issues, moderator Don Lemon asked the 47-year-old former congressman whether he supported revoking the tax-exempt status for religious institutions such as churches, colleges, and charities, if they don’t support gay marriage.

“Yes,” O’Rourke responded, to much applause.

Which pretty well scuppers the First Amendment, given that now some churches are to be more equal than others in Betoworld. Did he say anything about taxing devil-worship churches for being repulsive? Nope, just the ones whose traditional beliefs date back millennia.
