Beto would bankrupt churches

Empower Wisconsin | Oct. 15, 2019

Beto is offering his blessing — before he taxes the hell out of you. 

Beto O’Rourke says you are free to believe anything that you want, as long as you’re willing to pay the government.  

The Democrat candidate for president on Sunday renewed his call for churches, mosques, and synagogues that oppose same-sex marriage to lose their tax-exempt status. 

“To be clear, you are free to believe anything that you want to in this country, to associate with whom you please, to practice your faith as you best see fit,” O’Rourke told MSNBC’s Geoff Bennett. “But you are not allowed to discriminate against people in this country, to violate their civil rights or their human rights.” 

O’Rourke, a mid-tier contender polling at less than 2 percent , has been roundly criticized for his tax-the-churches plan on both sides of the political dividing line. 

“I agree that anti-discrimination law ought to be applied to all institutions, but the idea you are going to strip churches of their tax exempt status if they haven’t found their way toward blessing same-sex marriage, I’m not sure he understood the implications of what he was saying,” South Bend, Ind. Mayor and Dem presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg said during CNN’s State of the Union Sunday. 

Buttigieg, who is gay, said targeting the tax-exempt status of places of worship Is “just going to deepen the divisions that we’re already experiencing.” 

But division is what the Democratic Party preaches. 

President Trump weighed in on the Beto tax plan, and the far left’s assault on Judeo-Christian values in general. 

“They are trying to silence and punish the speech of Christians and religious believers of all faiths. They resent and disdain faithful Americans who hold fast to our nation’s historic values,” Trump said.
