At Trump's National Prayer Breakfast earlier this week, he repeated one of his campaign promises — he's going to repeal the Johnson Amendment. What's the Johnson Amendment?
It an amendment, drawn up in 1954, and bans all tax-exempt nonprofits, which includes houses of worship as well as charities, from "directly or indirectly" participating in any political candidate’s campaign.
Here's what Trump said about it at the event...
"Among those freedoms is the right to worship according to our own beliefs. That is why 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. I will do that. Remember."
I'm fine with this. If churches want to give their money to a candidate, they can start as soon as their tax-exempt status is surrendered. w/b: fancylad
