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

Beto O’Rourke, followed immediately by hearty approval:1

Yes.

James White, sarcastically responding on Twitter:

Can someone point me to the videos of all of the rest of the Socialist candidates who have rushed out and opposed O’Rourke’s stance? Who have shown a knowledge of American history, maybe even a slight nod to the Constitution? Help me out here.

Under an administration that adheres to O’Rourke’s position, any church that fails to lose its tax-exempt status is aptly described by the apostle Paul in 2 Timothy 4:3-4:

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.

I can’t think of anything that pontificates turning aside to myths more than a teaching that blatantly denies the sound doctrine of 1 Corinthians 6:9-10.
