Democrats Blast Beto While His Campaign Walks Back Religious Liberty Stance

Democratic Presidential Candidate Beto O’Rourke is trying to clarify remarks he made at the CNN LGBT Town hall last Thursday, in which he told host Don Lemon that religious organizations should lose their tax-exempt status for opposing same-sex marriage, as reported by Real Clear Politics.

The tweet marked a departure from his previous stance that “any institution” that opposes same-sex marriage could have their tax-exempt status revoked, not just those providing public services.

Saloni Sharma, a campaign spokesperson for Elizabeth Warren, told the Associated Press on Monday that the senator would not revoke the tax-exempt status of religious institutions that disagree with same-sex marriage.
