Capitol Connection Episode 129
Presidential Candidate Targets Churches, Charities for Religious Beliefs on Marriage
Presidential Candidate Beto O’Rourke made headlines recently when he called for any charitable organization that doesn’t support same-sex marriage to be stripped of their tax-exempt status during a nationally televised CNN town hall event.
In what the former Congressman stated would be a “top priority” for his administration, churches that believe in a biblical teaching of sexuality as well as faith-based adoption agencies, homeless shelters, women’s shelters, and schools would all lose their tax-exempt status over their religious beliefs.
Such a proposal targets sincere Christians, Jews, and Muslims across the country for not having religious convictions in line with a politician seeking to impose his progressive politics on citizens whose faith inspires them to serve their communities.
On this week’s Capitol Connection, hear what O’Rourke’s plan would really look like, if it could actually happen, who it would impact the most, and the need to defend religious freedom from hostile government action.
