LBJ Tried to shut his critics down by instituting a 'bend' in the tax code....
The Founders never intended the Church to be taxed.
Chruch leaders in the ' 50s did not know their American history much less their OT Biblical history..the Church was never to be taxed!!!.
Thus - they did not fight LBJ's silencing method and further-by allowing the state to dictate speech via the code-the 501c3 -the Church -by allowing the state to NOT tax -allowed the state to TAX!!!!
It's getting late -more later..
It is encouraging that some Church learders are showing some spine:
