Conservative media personality Ben Shapiro was having none of Beto O’Rourke’s radical anti-religious agenda, vowing to ‘take up a gun’ if it was implemented.
As Mediaite reports:
During a CNN Town Hall, Thursday night which focused on the rights of LGBTQ+, O’Rourke curiously advocated for forcing religious institutions to support gay marriage or lose their tax-exempt status….
This dubious comment was pretty much immediately derided as unconstitutional by conservatives and progressives alike, but Shapiro’s piqued response was next level…
“If you come to tell me that you’re going to indoctrinate my kids on a particular policy and I can’t pull my kid out of the school…?” … adding “that I can’t go the church or synagogue that I want to?” Not only will people “not stand for that,” he replied his own rhetorical question, adding his two choices: 1. leave the country utterly or 2. “to pick up a gun.”
“Those are the only choices left to me.”
