“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
- First Amendment to the United States Constitution
People of faith, including our Founding Fathers, understood that our rights come from God and not government and Faith & Freedom Coalition continues to work to protect the First Amendment rights of Christians and other Americans of conscience and faith.
Faith & Freedom Coalition is activity engaging the administration and the U.S. Congress to repeal two of the most blatant violations of our religious liberties in the Johnson Amendment, and the Obamacare contraceptive/abortifacient mandate:
- The Johnson Amendment is an amendment to the U.S. tax code inserted by then-Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson that prohibited all political speech by churches. This provision has been used by the IRS to intimidate, harass, silence, and persecute churches and ministries for six decades, violating the First Amendment right to political speech of millions of Americans.
- The Obamacare mandates that violate the religious faith of the Little Sisters of the Poor and other faith-based nonprofits, has forced people of faith to endure years of litigation, harassment and persecution simply for expressing their religious beliefs.
- Faith & Freedom Coalition supports full statutory repeal of the Johnson Amendment restore the right to political speech by pastors, churches and ministries and supports legislative repeal of the Obamacare mandates that violate our religious conscience
