O'Rourke would deny tax-exempt status from religious institutions if they don't believe in same-sex marriage.


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.

By definition, "religious institutions" includes mosques. BOB would remove their tax-exempt status.

Liberals making moral policy. Isn't it rich?

Beto is ignorant. His followers make him look like a genius. That's more than concerning. A less polite society would have culled the entire bunch a long time ago.

Looks like he won't make the next debate as it stands. What a loss.

Jess, What you said, and, I think that's the shortest answer he's ever given and without the gesturing histrionics. If he were handcuffed, I'm not sure he'd be able to speak.
Thanks for stopping by.

Bunk, Yes indeed. We need the BOB's of the world, though, don't we? Otherwise how would we tell the rational from the deranged? Thanks for stopping by.
