Johnson Amendment keeps churches from endorsing candidates, so of course Trump wants it weakened.

The Johnson Amendment prohibits tax-exempt houses of worship from endorsing political candidates or making campaign contributions. At Trump’s urging the House’s Financial Services spending bill includes a provision that bars the IRS from enforcing the Johnson Amendment. The bill moves to the House Appropriations Committee this week for further debate. Put a stop to it now.  

Script:  Separation of church and state is fundamental to American Democracy.  Please save the Johnson Amendment.
