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