DO THIS NOW: Keep the Church Separate from the State
November 2, 2017
The Johnson Amendment is a key piece of the separation of church and state—it bars churches and other religious institutions that receive tax-deductible charitable donations from donating to political campaigns.
Now, a small but powerful lobby is trying to slip repealing the Johnson Amendment into the big tax cut bill Republicans are releasing this week. Doing away with the Johnson Amendment would release a flood of money into our elections.
Worse yet, it would politicize our churches -- the one place left where, on a Sunday morning, you can escape the madness.
Call your representatives and tell them: leave our churches alone! Don't mess with the Johnson Admendment.
