The Church and Freedom of Speech

Churches Silenced By Government

Churches in the United States are prohibited from speaking out about legislation. They are further prohibited from speaking out in favor or against political candidates. If a church engages in the political process it will lose its tax exempt status and may not be able to financially support itself.

Separation of Church and State

The U.S. Constitution does not say that there should be a “separation of church and state” it says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof …” This has been twisted to mean “separation of church and state.”

We Need God in Government

We need God, and godly men and women, in government. What we do not need is government interfering in church.

A Call to Action

We should all call our congressmen and senators and demand that the internal revenue code be changed to allow churches to engage in the political process and keep their tax exempt status.
