End Citizens United Amps Up Support for the Johnson Amendment

Since the 2016 Presidential Election came to a conclusion, it has seemed like the entire political world has been on some sort of topsy-turvy ride. With Republicans in the White House, led by the still unbelievably ill-equipped Donald Trump, we have seen the United States slide further and further away from many of its core values. One of the foundations of the United States as a nation is the separation of church and state. The Johnson Amendment was introduced by Lyndon Johnson and Dwight Eisenhower in a bipartisan effort to keep religious institutions out of the core proceedings of politics. This amendment gave churches 501(C)(3) status which made them exempt from taxes, in return they would not cater to partisan politics. Donald Trump, as part of his agenda to destabilize the core values of the United States, has set sights on eroding this amendment.

It was early May when Donald Trump issued his first executive order taking aim at the Johnson Amendment. In the order, Trump told the IRS to quit prosecuting churches and religious organizations that refused to follow the law. So much for the party of ‘law and order’, right? This was just the beginning, however, as the latest Republican tax plan introduces a section that would effectively declaw the Johnson Amendment. This tax plan would open up the doors for massive influxes of political money to flow through religious institutions, thus giving political lobbyists another path to pump their money into Washington D.C.

End Citizens United is a political action committee that has spent the past two years fighting for campaign finance reform in Washington D.C. Like the rest of America, End Citizens United has been fundamentally disgusted by the flood of dark money into politics that has been turning the tide of the government against the people. The Citizens United Supreme Court decision, which was made back in 2010, centered on a conservative propaganda group that was arguing to allow corporations to have the same rights as people. Among those rights, Citizens United wanted corporations to be allowed to use monetary political donations as an extension of their ‘free speech’. Absurd, we know, but that was the approach that conservatives have been touting for years now. End Citizens United was established in order to overturn that decision and thus make their name a reality.

End Citizens United has a keen eye focused on campaign finance reform in all aspects, and that has them particularly focused on the hubbub surrounding the Johnson Amendment. Tiffany Muller is the president of the End Citizens United PAC and she has been vocal about her support of the Johnson Amendment. Muller believes that if the Johnson Amendment is repealed, churches will become private piggy banks for politicians at the highest level of the government.
