Christian Nationalist House Speaker Mike Johnson spoke at the National Association of Christian Lawmakers (NACL) gala on Tuesday night. When the fundamentalist took the stage, he thanked the NACL “for not allowing the media in.” I’m not surprised the media was banned, Johnson doesn’t want the press and the electorate to know the extent of his religious fanaticism. But the good Lord allowed his remarks to be made public:
“The Lord impressed upon my heart a few weeks before this happened that something was going to occur. And the Lord very specifically told me in my prayers to prepare, but to wait… I had this sense that we were going to come to a Red Sea moment in our Republican conference and in the county at large.
Look, I’m a Southern Baptist. I don’t wanna get too spooky on you. But you know, the Lord speaks to your heart. He had been speaking to me about this, and the Lord told me very clearly to prepare and be ready. Be ready for what? I don’t know. We’re coming to a Red Sea moment. What does that mean, Lord?
When the speaker’s race happened and Kevin McCarthy, who’s a dear friend of mine, was deposed and vacated from the chair. Oh, wow! Well, this is what the Lord may have been preparing us for.”
Almose every religion believes you can communicate with God via chanting, praying or meditation. Most people of faith pray, and even though they have no scientific proof that God answers or even hears their prayers, they believe it’s a spiritual, cathartic and therapeutic practice.
Then there are the religious fanatics who are convinced that the Almighty not only hears their prayers, but that he answers them, sometimes audibly. If you talk to the Supreme Being you are a normal human being, but if you believe that he audibly talks back to you, you should exchange your pastor for a psychiatrist.
Johnson is convinced that the Lord spoke to him very clearly telling him that He choose him to be the next Moses to be the Speaker of the House. Jesus Christ! The apparent Republican presidential nominee thinks he is Jesus and the Speaker of the House thinks he is a Moses figure. We are fucked.
