O'Rourke's tax-exempt opposition draws response
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke's declaration churches should lose their tax-exempt status if they do not agree with same-sex marriage drew quick rebuttals from Southern Baptist leaders and others.

Southern Baptist ethicist Russell Moore called O'Rourke's comments "alarming because they represent precisely what those on his side of these issues have said for years that they are not seeking to do."

"Tax exemption for churches is not a 'reward,' but a recognition that the power to tax is the power to destroy," said Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, in written comments for Baptist Press. "And, indeed, with these comments Congressman O'Rourke threatens to destroy every church, synagogue or other religious institution that does not adopt his viewpoint on sexual ethics over and against their own traditions and authoritative texts. That is not the American ...

They had an African-Indonesian who took their breath away for several years, Doug. That was scraping the bottom of the barrel; now they’re sweeping UNDER the barrel looking for someone to wow them.

"Beto" is getting into deep waters here. Not that he stands a chance of winning the Democrat Party's nomination. He is white, male and not Hispanic. Can't they find someone who is truly Hispanic, like a Marco Rubio? Don't they have any blacks of American-born parents, not this phony DA from LA whose parent is from Jamaica (and owned and sold slaves)

""Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke's declaration churches should lose their tax-exempt status if they do not agree with same-sex marriage drew quick rebuttals""

A Presidential candidate who would lead America, seeks to vilify churches because they stand by the Word of God.

Democrats reveal themselves to be satanic and disgusting ethically and this is what they would bring into politics and leadership of the nation of America.

Satan's servants manifest themselves - on the left - and as the evil choice. But they can't see this themselves because sin blinds them as reprobates. Matt 25:33.

Killers of the unborn child, sponsors of the abomination;
Clearly the 'goats' which the Lord describes as heading to eternal punishment. May God have mercy on the souls of those who would put such abominable wickedness into government.

So the truth finally comes out, Jim. For years you have been openly in favor of murdering babies, and now you come out publicly on the side of same-sex marriage. Bozo O’Rourke said that churches that are not actively in favor of sodomite marriage should lose their tax-exempt status, and you, Mr. Jim Lincoln of Nebraska, said “This is a great idea.”
Let me tell you what would be a great idea, Jim. It would be a great idea if you would actually get saved, and quit being a fake Christian. It would be a great idea if you would throw away that incomplete and inaccurate ESV and get you a REAL Bible, the King James Version. It would be a great idea if you would actually study that Bible and start agreeing with God, instead of studying the inane sayings of liberal twerps on Google and agreeing with them. And it would be a great idea if you would simply shut up until you actually know something. Your current ignorance is simply astounding.

This is a great idea, and should actually be more vigorously enforced rather than trying to be stamped down. wrote:
A ban on church intervention in political campaigns became law in 1954 with the passage of then-Senator Lyndon Johnson’s amendment to Internal Revenue Code (IRC) section 501(c)(3), which covers tax-exempt charitable organizations in general. The amendment was passed with no recorded input from churches or any other charitable groups. Under the amended IRC, churches and all other 501(c)(3) charities are “absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office” if they are to remain tax-exempt. [IRC 8] Contributions to political campaign funds in support or opposition to candidates are also prohibited, but pastors may campaign as individuals without the imprimatur of the church, and churches may speak out on public issues so long as they don’t “devote a substantial part of their activities to attempting to influence legislation.”
excerpt from, "History of Churches and Taxes"

Interesting source of interesting information.đź‘Ť

Bobby O, what happens to our nation when you take away guns and shut down churches. It won’t be a Marxist utopia. It’ll be Gettysburg and Sharpsburg all over again.
