The House of Representatives is currently considering the Financial Services and General Government appropriations bill, which contains a provision that would effectively make the Johnson Amendment unenforceable. You’ll remember from our previous action alerts that the Johnson Amendment is the provision which prohibits houses of worship and other non-profits from participating in campaign politics while maintaining a preferential tax status. 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 not to pass legislation which harms the Johnson Amendment!
Thank you for defending the separation between church and state.
