Free Speech Fairness Act

Editor   |   February 22, 2017

The Johnson Amendment was slipped into the tax code in the ’50s.  It prevents any church or other 501 (c) (3) organization from endorsing or opposing political candidates — even for biblical reasons.  As a candidate, Donald Trump promised to eliminate this violation of First Amendment rights for pastors and organizational leaders.  The Free Speech Fairness Act was introduced in the House and Senate, and we need to support it.  Imagine the impact churches could have in electing godly leaders if they chose to do so.  It simply allows them to participate in political speech.  Please contact your members of Congress and ask them to support the Free Speech Fairness Act.  Visit LifeIssues.org and click on the microphone icon for links to your elected officials.

 

The Free Speech Fairness Act of 2017 has been introduced into the House of Representatives (HR 781) and in the Senate (S 264). It simply allows pastors or leaders of other 501 (c) (3) organizations to participate in political speech.

If your church chose to do so, the pastor could tell members which candidates support biblical values. Imagine the good that could come from this!

Please contact your Representative and Senators today and ask them to support this bill.
