Mike Johnson: ‘Depraved’ America Deserves God’s Wrath

Citing the increase in queer youth, Johnson called American culture "dark and depraved" on a call with a Christian nationalist pastor

Talking to pastor Jim Garlow on a broadcast of the World Prayer Network, Johnson spoke ominously of America facing a “civilizational moment.” He said, “The only question is: Is God going to allow our nation to enter a time of judgment for our collective sins? … Or is he going to give us one more chance to restore the foundations and return to Him?”

The segment was filmed Oct. 3, just weeks before Johnson’s unexpected rise to become speaker of the House. Garlow pressed the clean-cut Louisiana congressman to say “more about this ‘time of judgment’ for America.” Johnson replied: “The culture is so dark and depraved that it almost seems irredeemable.” He cited, as supposed evidence, the decline of national church attendance and the rise of LGBTQ youth — the fact, Johnson lamented, that “one-in-four high school students identifies as something other than straight.”

No one should ever call Mike Johnson sneaky, less than honest, or a liar. He is very upfront as to who he is and what he believes in.

We often berate pols for saying one thing and doing something completely different . Two faced . I doubt Mike Johnson gets assured of this often.

True r27. Men who are actually heterosexual don't think about gay men all that much because it doesn't apply to them. Johnson spends more time thinking about gay men than GLAAD and the HRC combined. 😂

And whenever these anti-gay homophobe loons talk about the "evils" of homosexuality, notice it's always, always MALE homosexuality. Female homosexuality (lesbianism) is never part of their conversation. That says an awful lot.

Does DL believe he's successfully squelched his same sex attraction behaviorally? As in has he totally and successfully foregone sexual encounters with men? Not that he doesn't have remnants or huge swaths of male lust in him. Getting his teen son to observe his online activity sure sounds like a firewall to me.

I recall reading about this at the time, and my understanding is that this experiment has been replicated several times since.

[QUOTE One of the most important lines of work in this area dates back to a 1996 article published in The Journal of Abnormal Psychology. In this empirical paper, researchers Henry Adams, Lester Wright, Jr., and Bethany Lohr from the University of Georgia report evidence that homophobic young males may secretly have gay urges.

[quote] Written by Scott McKay, a local Louisiana politics blogger, the book, “The Revivalist Manifesto,” gives credence to unfounded conspiracy theories often embraced by the far-right – including the “Pizzagate” hoax, which falsely claimed top Democratic officials were involved in a pedophile ring, among other conspiracies.

[quote] The book also propagates baseless and inaccurate claims, implying that Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts was subjected to blackmail and connected to the disgraced underage sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.

[quote] Other sections of the book defend podcaster Joe Rogan from racism charges after it was revealed he used the N-word, which Rogan later apologized for. The book also disparages poor voters as “unsophisticated and susceptible to government dependency” and easy to manipulate with “Black Lives Matter ‘defund the police’ pandering.”

[quote] “Scott McKay presents a valuable and timely contribution with The Revivalist Manifesto because he has managed here to articulate well what millions of conscientious, freedom-loving Americans are sensing,” Johnson writes in his 300-word foreword.

[quote] Johnson’s endorsement of the book extends beyond the foreword: In 2022, he actively promoted the book on his public social media platforms and even dedicated an episode of his podcast he co-hosts with his wife to hosting McKay.

Yes, R137, Johnson has reported no assets whatsoever on disclosure forms, meaning that whatever accounts he has earn no interest and contain only negligible funds at any given time. This was widely reported. R136 is being disingenuous: there's plenty of evidence that something is up with Johnson's finances.

Slightly off topic but...on the other hand, in New Jersey Friday:

[bold] Man Gets 8 Years in Prison for Racial Slurs Against Neighbor [/Bold]

[quote] Edward Cagney Mathews, 47, will be forced to serve at least four years of an eight year prison sentence handed down Friday after he was caught in a viral video in July 2021 hurling racial abuse at a Black neighbor and spitting on him. It later emerged that he had been terrorizing Black people in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, for years. Mathews was captured on video calling his neighbor a “monkey” and the N-word, while bumping his chest and spitting on him. Authorities then discovered he had frequently used racial slurs against Black neighbors, put feces on their property, sent threatening emails and letters, and shot their cars with BB pellets. The video sparked hundreds of people to converge on his home and call for his arrest. Mathews, who has already been in jail for two and a half years, sobbed in court but apologized for his “insensitive and disrespectful words.” “Every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future,” he said

[quote] The flag was originally used as a banner during the Revolutionary War, but over the past decade, it has been embraced by a sect of Christianity called the New Apostolic Reformation, or NAR. A central tenet of NAR’s belief system is that it is God’s will for Christians to take control of all aspects of U.S. society—including education, arts and entertainment, the media, and businesses—to create a religious nation.

"The Dems want to stay in power ever bit as much as the GOP does. We will even support the opposition being thrown off the ballot so they can’t win."

Hey asshole, the reason the Democrats want that deadbeat, dirtball scumbag Trump off the fucking ballot is because he wanted to overthrow democracy itself by staging an armed insurrection/revolution simply because his massive fucking ego can't handle being handed a defeat at the polls by the voters of America. The voters of America decided he wasn't fit to be president and voted his fat, entitled white ass out. What does the mother fucker do? Starts promoting the "big lie" which has absolutely no basis in reality or fact. Here we are, three years later, and this mother fucker is still claiming the election has been stolen from him, even though he or any of his idiotic supporters haven't supplied a single fucking shred of credible evidence that the election was frozen.

And let's get real here: If Barack Obama or any black or brown person had led an armed insurrection and stormed the US Capitol on 1/06/23, they'd and his/her followers AND THEIR families would have been drawn and quartered and buried six feet under by spring of 2021, with Donald Fucking Trump and other gutless, spineless cowards like Mike Johnson and Gym Jordan leading the charge.

DONALD TRUMP IS GUILTY OF TREASON. Plain and simple. And I don't give a flying fuck how many god damned, high powered lawyers like Allan Fucking Dershowitz claim he's innocent.

Democrats want to maintain power in order to enact policies, which in their case mainly aim at increasing rights and prosperity. Republicans seem to have lost interest in serious policy (including economic, foreign, and military) and just aim at monopolizing power to increase the wealth of a small minority.

Trump will be easier to defeat than Haley and maybe even Desantis. And I want the easiest to defeat on the ballot. You are free to see it differently. And I will not act like a child and call you an asshole if you do.

Unlees of course trump has been found guilty of treason or insurrection in a criminal court. Then even if he was the easiest to defeat he should not be on the ballot.

Has trump been convicted in a criminal court of treason or insurrection? If so I missed it.
