Another Effort To Get Rid Of The 'Johnson Amendment' Fails

Printer-friendly version

The campaign has never gained much momentum, however, perhaps because relatively few pastors appear to feel constrained by the Johnson Amendment, and because surveys show Americans don't want to hear more politics from the pulpit.

Among those celebrating the preservation of the Johnson Amendment was the National Council of Nonprofits, a network of about 25,000 charitable organizations around the country, and more than 100 religious groups.

"Those who depend on houses of worship and community nonprofits can breathe a sigh of relief," said Amanda Tyler, executive director of the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty. "Concerted efforts to weaken the longstanding law that keeps [them] free from partisan campaigning were rebuked yet again."
