Democrats Demand Fealty To LGBT Agenda
Democrats Demand Fealty To LGBT Agenda
Proving yet again that overexposure is exactly what will be the downfall of the Democrats, nine candidates stood up on CNN last night to proclaim their loyalty to less than 5 percent of the population and change all laws for them.
This is not to say that the LGBT population of the United States should not be given any consideration. It is to say that when Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (desperately trying to hang on to that ever-fading hope that he is “woke” enough to be vice-president) declares that churches need to lose their tax-exempt status if they don’t fall in line with leftist dogma and support same-sex marriage, that the left has vaulted straight over the shark and gone to full pander-bear.
While at a CNN candidate forum about gay and transgender issues, moderator Don Lemon asked the 47-year-old former congressman whether he supported revoking the tax-exempt status for religious institutions such as churches, colleges, and charities, if they don’t support gay marriage.
“Yes,” O’Rourke responded, to much applause.
“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,” O’Rourke said. “And so, as president, we’re going to make that a priority, and we are going to stop those who are infringing upon the human rights of our fellow Americans.”
Now, Beto is willing to be crazy because Beto has exactly nothing to lose by being crazy. However, all the other Democrats on the campaign trail need to be asked if they will support Beto’s standards for all religious institutions, including synagogues and mosques. Bring your popcorn and lawn chairs if that question ever gets asked. (It won’t be, because the Democrats would pretty much twist themselves into a rhetorical pretzel to avoid answering it.)
But Beto wasn’t the only candidate who talked themselves into a corner last night. Enter Grandpa Joe Biden, who is desperate enough to avoid all questions about his son’s Ukraine connections that he was willing to go onstage and pretend to kiss Anderson Cooper in a reenactment of a conversation he had with Barack Obama. That’s a sentence I never thought I would write, but here we are.

Biden then really stuck his foot in it.

Meanwhile, it’s clear that the media has anointed Elizabeth Warren as the frontrunner, which means that not only is she the beneficiary of glowing press spin over her latest documented lie, her “one-liner” is being pushed to “viral” status.
Question: What if a supporter says "my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman, what is your response?"

And she’s still getting all the glowing press.
When asked if there was ever a time she did not support same-sex marriage, Warren at first said she didn’t think so, then reflected on her childhood growing up in a conservative household in Oklahoma.”
“It may have been the case. You know, I don’t have notes from when I was a little kid,” Warren said, receiving a laugh from the audience. “To me, it’s about what I learned in the church I grew up in.”
The senator from Massachusetts then recited the first song she remembers singing: “They are yellow, black and white. They are precious in his sight. Jesus loves all the children of the world,” she sang. “But to me, that is the heart of it. That is the basis of the faith I grew up in. It is really about the preciousness of each and every life. It is about the worth of every human being.”
Yes, well, Elizabeth Warren believed she was Native American in that same “conservative household in Oklahoma” and clearly didn’t look into her own family’s notes, so take that as you will. Also, she had better doublecheck with Beto about all that Jesus talk.
At the end of this town hall, only one thing was for certain. The Trump campaign thanks CNN and the Democrats for their in-kind donation to his campaign. They will be able to run ads for eternity on this insanity.
