Donald Trump isn’t just fulfilling the promises he made during his campaign, he is CRUSHING them.
Trump just announced that he is going to change a rule that had Churches around the country living in fear that if they speak out about a political figure, they will be attacked by the government.
President Trump will be repealing the Johnson Amendment, which bans public charities — including churches — from campaigning for or against a candidate for elected office.
“Among those freedoms is the right to worship according to our own beliefs. That is why 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. “I will do that, remember.”
This move will give a voice back to churches who have been attacked by left wing policies and an abusive IRS.
Franklin Graham, son of American preacher Billy Graham, was a victim of the Johnson Amendment. Graham faced IRS investigations for his organizations Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. He wrote to President Obama in 2013 to complain.
“I believe that someone in the [Obama] Administration was targeting and attempting to intimidate us,” he wrote. “This is morally wrong and some would call it ‘un-American.’”
Trump promised during his campaign to give churches their voice back and that is EXACTLY what he is doing. Thank you President Trump and God bless you for this!
