The Johnson Amendment is outrageous. I can imagine Jesus refusing to not speak out. In fact, he frequently did.

In 1954, Sen. Lyndon Johnson, worried about opposition at home, came up with an amendment to the Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) that prohibited campaign speech by nonprofits and tax-exempt churches.

The effect of the Johnson Amendment is prohibit speech solely on the content of the speech.

Trump is correct to get rid of this.

I will get rid of and totally destroy the Johnson Amendment and allow our representatives of faith to speak freely and without fear of retribution.” ~Donald Trump
