If you haven’t heard about the latest drama on the Interwebz, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided to sit down during the National Anthem at an exhibition game
In 1954 Congress passed the Johnson Amendment (prepared by Lyndon Johnson) which said that non-profits (including churches) could not speak in favor of political candidates. Is this constitutional?
Commentary by Karen Scott:
What evangelicals are not told is that if the Johnson amendment is revoked, it would not apply to just evangelical churches but also mosques, which many evangelicals think are promoting ‘ sharia law’ and also ‘ liberal’ Christian churches endorsing and raising campaign funds for their liberal candidates as well.
More than 1,500 pastors explicitly broke the law last Sunday by endorsing political candidates from the pulpit.
