Conservatives in Congress just reintroduced the deceptively-named Free Speech Fairness Act, which would greatly weaken the Johnson Amendment. The Johnson Amendment is the federal law which prohibits houses of worship and other organizations which receive tax-deductible donations from participating in elections.
If the Johnson Amendment is weakened churches would flood our electoral process with dark money and make elections even less transparent than they are now. And while we have been able to defeat previous attempts to either repeal or weaken the Johnson Amendment, we need your help right now to make sure that the Johnson Amendment isn’t destroyed.
The Religious Right is hoping that Americans won’t take notice and stand up to their attempts to sneakily harm the Johnson Amendment, but I know that humanists are determined to protect the separation of church and state and a transparent elections process. Tell Congress to reject this bad bill and support the Johnson Amendment!
Thank you for protecting our elections and the separation between church and state.
