Our topic was the rallies in Dallas, the Trump rally and the Beto O’Rourke Rally Against Fear.
Pastor Jeffress made a vociferous defense of Trump.
I pointed out how both Trump and Pastor Jeffress totally mischaracterized Beto’s proposal regarding tax-exempt religious institutions discrimination against LGBTQ. Further, I described it as a natural consequence of the Republicans tearing away at the 1954 Johnson Amendment which prohibited churches from getting involved in politics.
CORRECTION – I said the Johnson Amendment was removed. The Republicans attempted to remove it in 2017 and failed, but Trump signed an executive order telling the IRS not to enforce it. Essentially the same outcome as removing it.
