Protect Pastors’ Free Speech

The free speech of pastors in the pulpit is being eviscerated.

President Trump issued an Executive Order to defend religious liberty and protect pastors. The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) immediately filed a lawsuit to defeat the Religious Liberty Order and expand their vicious intimidation campaign to censor pastors.

The Johnson Amendment punishes pastors for any speech construed as political campaign activity in churches. It even limits non-profits like the ACLJ. Even worse, this anti-free speech law is twisted and expanded to muzzle pastors.

If leftists and anti-Christian agitators win, pastors could be banned from preaching on issues deemed political: life, morality – the Bible.

We’ve been fighting against the Johnson Amendment for decades. We’re aggressively working in Congress to repeal it. We’re preparing an amicus brief in federal court to defend the Executive Order that limits the Johnson Amendment and protects religious liberty. Take action with us:
