Bringing Politics to the Pulpit
Why the Intersection of Faith and Politics Matters to Everyone

Religious freedom in the U.S consists of the right to religious beliefs and a guarantee that government neither prefers religion over non-religion nor favors one religious tradition over another. These two dimensions of the First Amendment, the establishment and the free exercise clauses are at the center of the intersection of religion and politics.

The Johnson Amendment regulates what tax-exempt organizations such as churches can do in the political arena.

- Does it prohibit all types of political activity in houses of worship?
- Does it threatened free speech or provide protections?
- Is it enforceable or should it be changed?
- How does it impact you and your organization?
