The Background for Political Regulations

From the founding of the United States, up until 1954, there were no regulations on churches in regards to politics. In 1954, Lyndon B. Johnson proposed an amendment to the IRS that would put regulations in place against non-profit organizations (which include churches) which would take away the non-profit status if they endorsed a political candidate, as a way to get back at a non-profit group that did not support his candidacy.
