The Johnson Amendment is an amendment to a 1954 law that provides that no church, or other institution of worship, or other non-profit organization, shall engage in political activity or endorse political candidates. Churches that do this risk de-certification as public charities under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
