During an “Equality town hall” last night on CNN, Democrat Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke announced he was in favor of a mandated LGBTQ curriculum.

Dallas News – Beto O’Rourke — already pushing a ban on assault weapons — has added to the list of issues sure to alienate conservative voters if he makes it to the general election, by vowing to revoke the tax-exempt status of churches that oppose same-sex marriage.

His stance toward conservative religious institutions was far more aggressive than that of most rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The Texan seemed to be addressing acts of discrimination, such as withholding insurance benefits, although CNN’s Don Lemon framed the question in terms of belief: “Do you think religious institutions like colleges, churches, charities — should they lose their tax-exempt status if they oppose same-sex marriage?”

“Yes,” O’Rourke said without hesitation, drawing applause from the Los Angeles audience.

“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,” he added. “So as president, we’re going to make that a priority and we are going to stop those who are infringing on the rights of our fellow Americans.”

Conservative Ben Shapiro reacted to Beto O’Rourke’s outrageous statement by warning O’Rourke, “Beto O’Rourke does not get to raise my child. And if he tries, I will meet him at the door with a gun.”

Jason Campbell shared the video of Shapiro warning O’Rourke. Many on the left accused Shapiro of putting a literal target on O’Rourke’s back. Others on Twitter claim O’Rourke’s outrageous promises if elected, will push America into a full-scale civil war.

Ben Shapiro is right. There will be a civil war in this country before people allow the government to take away their right to raise their children in their preferred religion. If we lose our right to religious expression we have lost the very reason this country was created.

There’s the traditional dog-whistle, Nazi combination accusation, commonly used against conservatives when they say something liberals don’t agree with.


And then there’s this guy, who accuses Jason Campbell of selectively editing the video, or “cherry-picking” Shapiro’s words.

You cherry picked his words. Yes he did say he would do that but as a last resort if government Truett officers showed up at his door to take his kids. TELL THE WHOLE STORY NOT JUST WHAT YOU WANT FOR THE SENSATION.
