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?
We will distribute the results our poll about the Johnson Amendment to
- Candidates for President and Congress
- Members of Congress
- Federal judges
- State lawmakers
- Reporters, journalists, and news media executives
- Radio talk show hosts
- Newspaper columnists
- Influential bloggers and news-oriented websites
We expect this survey of Christians to receive wide media attention and the results to be studied carefully by America’s elected officials.
It’s time for pastors to take a stand:
- For freedom of conscience
- For religious liberty
- For the First Amendment
- For life
- For Israel
- For marriage and family
Craig Huey will soon be on TV and radio talking about Christian voters and their opinion on this issue.
Question: Should the Johnson Amendment be repealed so pastors can speak out on cultural and political issues, without being afraid of losing their churches’ tax exemption status?
