MAGA Mike Unleashes on ‘Disgusting’ Liberals

via Fox News

Rep. Mike Johnson, the newly elected Speaker of the House, responded to criticism from liberals and the media regarding his Christian faith.

He addressed comments made by MSNBC host Jen Psaki and HBO host Bill Maher, dismissing the attacks and stating that he is not trying to establish Christianity as the national religion.

Johnson emphasized that his faith is based on love and acceptance, and he found comparisons to the Taliban or a mass shooter to be absurd and offensive. (Trending: It’s Time For Donald Trump To Drop Out)

“Media wasn’t always so friendly to someone with a Judeo-Christian worldview, and in your case, some of the things that had been said, Politico interviewed a historian about your worldview, and this historian said you’re a Christian nationalist, it comes from that of Christian supremacy,” Fox News’ Kayleigh McEnany said to Johnson.

She then quoted Psaki labeling Johnson as a Christian “fundamentalist.”

“What do you think when you hear that?” McEnany asked.

“Look, there are entire industries that are built to take down public leaders – effective political leaders like me. I’m not surprised by that. I mean, it comes with the territory. It doesn’t bother me at all,” Johnson responded.

“I just wish they would get to know me,” he continued, adding, “I’m not trying to establish Christianity as the national religion or something. That’s not what this is about at all.” (Trending: Judge Declines To Recuse From Trump 2024 Ballot Case)

“If you truly believe in the Bible’s commands, and you seek to follow those, it’s impossible to be a hateful person because the greatest command in the Bible is that you love God with everything you had, and you love your neighbor as yourself,” he said.

Johnson called the comparisons “disgusting.”

“That is absurd,” he said, adding, “Of course, our religion is based on love and acceptance. So, to compare that worldview with the Taliban, who seek to destroy their enemies, or with some deranged shooter who murders people is absolutely outrageous. And I think that everyone who follows and believes in a Judeo-Christian worldview should be just terribly offended by that.”

While he can handle the criticism, he expressed concern that such attacks undermine the principles upon which the country was built.
