Albert Mohler: An Earthquake at CNN’s Equality Town Hall

CNN’s recent Equality Town Hall was an earthquake—morally, politically, and culturally.

In case you missed it: When Beto O’Rourke was asked if he would strip the tax exemption from religious organizations that hold what he considers to be the wrong view of marriage, he responded with an unequivocal and unconditional “yes.”

Shortly after that, Beto O’Rourke then tweeted his own statement, making clear he was proud of it.

Some on the left were extremely troubled, not because they disagreed with him, but because he let the cat out of the bag.

Michael McGough, senior editorial writer for The Los Angeles Times, ran a piece with the headline, “Beto O’Rourke’s ‘church tax’ idea plays into conservative paranoia about same-sex marriage.”

Conservative paranoia?

Conservative evangelicals are now called “paranoid” for listening to the words actually spoken by those who are running for president, and being concerned about those words.

That’s not paranoia.

That’s called reality.

Michael Medved: Not All Screen Time Is Created Equal

An important new study from the American Medical Association makes the point that children hurt their school performance not by the total hours they spend on “screen time” but by the kind of screens they choose to watch.

In the journal Jama Pediatrics, the authors summarize 58 studies published in recent years. Their conclusions show that time spent watching TV or playing video games is just as destructive as experts have long maintained—particularly damaging children’s achievement during their teenage years.

But other sorts of screen time—like social media on smart phones, or surfing the web—prove far less destructive because they’re less passive, more communicative.

In an era when parents sometimes spend thousands on tutors to boost a child’s academic prospects, they could produce better results by strictly limiting time gawking at the tube, or lost in the fantasy world of video games.

Jerry Bowyer: Beto Makes the Case for State Suppression of Religion

On CNN last week there was a deeply disturbing exchange between Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke and Don Lemon, who asked:

“Do you think religious institutions—like colleges, churches, charities—should they lose their tax-exempt status if they oppose same-sex marriage?”

“Yes. There can be no reward, no benefit, no tax break, for anyone, any institution, any organization in America that denies the full human rights and the full civil rights of every single one of us.”

Just to be clear, this not about whether donors should be allowed to deduct contributions or not. This is an open call for the state to tax the church, to seize the assets of the church—and synagogue and mosque—and not of churches in general, but targeted at the ones who retain the orthodox positions of their respective faiths.

It’s an argument for the state suppression of religion.
