Sasse Statement on Beto's 'Extreme Intolerance'

U.S. Senator for Nebraska Ben Sasse
Oct. 11, 2019

LINCOLN, Neb., Oct. 11, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ -- U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following condemnation of Beto O'Rourke's unconstitutional attack on churches, synagogues, and mosques that do not perform same-sex marriages.

    "Last night, Beto O'Rourke said that churches, hospitals, and charities — folks who are serving their communities and loving their neighbors — should lose their tax-exempt status if their religious convictions don't fall in line with his progressive politics. This extreme intolerance is un-American. The whole point of the First Amendment is that, no matter who you love and where you worship, everyone is created with dignity and we don't use government power to decide which religious beliefs are legitimate and which aren't. This bigoted nonsense would target a lot of sincere Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Leaders from both political parties have a duty to flatly condemn this attack on very basic American freedoms."
