The inability to speak politics from the pulpit has plagued American churches for decades now.
However, President Trump has a different plan, warning that religious freedom is “under threat.”
On Thursday, he made a promise to the American people to repeal the infamous Johnson Amendment, which happens to be a long-standing IRS rule that disallows pastors and religious leaders from endorsing candidates.
“I will get rid of and totally destroy the Johnson Amendment and allow our representatives of faith to speak freely and without fear of retribution,” Trump said during remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast, a high-profile event bringing together faith leaders, politicians and dignitaries.
Trump made a similar pledge as a candidate but has not detailed how he plans to scrap the rule or how quickly he will proceed in doing do.
American churches were the most influential pillar of early America — but now, they are closing and reducing themselves to rubble in the ever-growing secularism of society. But repealing the Johnson Amendment would be the first step in making churches great again.
