Mike Johnson’s Faith vs. Democrats’ Fears: A Unique Battle

Democrats may have gotten more than they bargained for after complaining about the GOP’s inability to elect a new House speaker. They took advantage of the situation to criticize the Republicans’ governance and publicly lament their failure to pass a resolution condemning a Hamas attack in Israel. When Rep. Mike Johnson was elected as speaker, Democrats quickly began attacking him as an extremist and wishing for the “good old days” under former Speaker Kevin McCarthy. The failures to elect a new speaker may be attributed to McCarthy’s alleged support of Democratic agendas. Despite his withdrawal from candidacy, Rep. Jim Jordan did not replace McCarthy. Johnson’s election as speaker is considered a miracle, as he promises to govern based on biblical principles and follows a man of faith. His belief in the power of religion and morality in governance has made him a target for the left. He believes that the success of future legislation will depend on the nation’s repentance and willingness to follow President Washington’s advice. This, according to the article, would be a true miracle given the current state of the nation.
