Repeal the Johnson Amendment [Poll]

Should pastors be allowed to speak up on current cultural and political issues?

Since 1954, by law pastors have been silent. Before 1954, pastors often spoke up on political and cultural issues.

They were the voice of conscience on cultural and political issues.

In 1954, Congress passed the Johnson Amendment, which said that churches could lose their tax exemption status if they spoke out on political issues.

Donald Trump wants to repeal this law.

Hillary Clinton wants to keep the law.

What do you think?

  1. absolutely Pastors and church leaders need to express their Biblical views including current events that affect Christians at a daily living level.

    This should be repealed.

  2. It is my understanding the Johnson amendment restricts pastors from promoting individual candidates but does not restrict them from speaking about cultural or political issues. Too many pastors/church leaders are afraid they might offend someone in their audience so instead of teaching Biblical truth and liberty they hide behind Johnson amendment and don’t say anything. Shame on them. That said the amendment should be eliminated.
    We need preachers like Mulenberg, Caldwell and Clark who spoke out for Christ and liberty. (1770s)
