Democrats and their socialist foot soldiers can’t stand anyone who disagrees with them.
And they especially despise any politician who won’t shy away from their beliefs to appease them.
That’s why new House Speaker Mike Johnson is accused of being a terrorist by radical leftists because of this one thing.
Newly elected House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) has responded to Leftist critics who have attacked him for being an unapologetic Christian.
Pick up a Bible and read it
Shortly after winning the speakership last week, Johnson went on the Fox News show ‘Hannity’ and told host Sean Hannity that his Christian faith is “central to his personal identity.”
“I am a Bible-believing Christian. Someone asked me today in the media, they said, ‘It’s curious, people are curious. What does Mike Johnson think about any issue under the sun?’ I said, ‘Well, go pick up a Bible off your shelf and read it — that’s my worldview.’ That’s what I believe, and so I make no apologies for it.”
Johnson’s strong Christian faith, and his willingness to admit to it, set off a firestorm of disgusting attacks against the new Speaker and his Christian faith.
Bill Maher compared Johnson to the mass killer who murdered 18 people in Lewiston, Maine.
MSNBC host Jen Psaki labeled Johnson a “religious fundamentalist” and brutally mocked his faith.
And the left-wing rag the Daily Beast compared Johnson to the “Taliban and the mullahs in Iran,” claiming Johnson wants to “institutionalize” his Christian faith.
Johnson fires back
And the comments on social media by the anti-Christian socialist mob were even more disgusting.
The Left simply cannot stand anyone who is a proud, unabashed Christian.
But that didn’t stop Johnson from firing back at the anti-Christian bigots.
Speaking to Fox News host Kayleigh McEnany, Johnson rightfully condemned the personal attacks on his faith as “disgusting” and absurd.”
“Our religion is based on love and acceptance,” Johnson pointed out. “So to compare that worldview with the Taliban, who seek to destroy their enemies, or with, you know, some deranged shooter who murders people is absolutely outrageous.”
“And I think everyone who follows and believes in a Judeo-Christian worldview should be just terribly offended by that,” he went on.
Johnson accepted that that character attacks and smears come with his job and said he’s willing and able to “take the arrows.”
“But what really hurts me,” he said, “is that it really is a statement about everyone who believes in this that the country was built upon. Our Judeo-Christian foundation is the heritage of our country.”
Johnson also laughed off the accusation that he wants to institutionalize Christianity or establish it as the national religion.
“I just wish they would get to know me. I’m not trying to establish Christianity as the national religion or something,” he said.
“If you truly believe in the Bible’s commands and you seek to follow those, it is impossible to be a hateful person, because the greatest command in the Bible is that you love God with everything you have and you love your neighbor as yourself.”
And that is something the radical Left just cannot accept.
