I urge you NOT to repeal the Johnson Amendment or alter it in any way that would undermine its purpose. We must protect the separation of church and state, and do I need to point out that congress and the President took a vow to uphold the Constitution? Keep church influence out of politics! The public is not stupid. We know that the motivation for this is for Republicans to give tax breaks to mega-churches who will then turn around and spend their money on campaigns and evangelize for Republican candidates. This undermines our democracy and weakens the United States as a world power.
