Here's thing I want y'all to understand. Mike Johnson is the reason why our founding fathers (as imperfect as they are) put in the Separation of Church and state in the Constitution twice. First Article 6 Part 3, and the Very first Amendment in the bill of rights. Article 6 Part three is simple.

It prohibits candidates for any offices from using religious tests. Think about it. The GOP has been illegally using religious tests for decades now since Reagan. In fact that was something that even Barry Goldwater warned against. He was an asshole but he has dealt with these zealots.

That is, he has dealt with them in the past and determined quite quickly that they were up to no good. Also keep in mind that these people are doing this, because they're delusional. That is they believe they're acting in the name of God, when they are not.

They're instead acting in their own interests, ignorance, and biases. First they claim to be pro life, but they have people like Ken Paxton threatening doctors who perform abortions when even a court says it has to be done (and causing OB/GYNs to move out of the state).

Also they claim the death penalty is a deterrent to murder. However, the opposite is true. Most executions takes place decades after the fact. Also it is more expensive to go through executions, than it is life imprisonment without parole.

Finally, they DO NOT want to fund life sustaining things. They do not want to fund any kind of education, social safety nets, making sure air, land, and water is cleaned, livable wages etc. I will say this, it's a pure fallacy to say who's a "real" Christian. That is the "True Scotsman" fallacy.

However, it is safe to say that the fakers are ruining things for Christians who just are vibing and living their lives. People like Mike Johnson on the other hand....they're going to be dealing with a very angry Jesus when the time comes. Because well...they mistreat those whom are the least.

Your threaded Spout is absolutely awesome. It is nothing but truth.
Thank you.
Our 1st Amendment is frequently said to grant Constitutional freedom of religious activities. In a backwards way it does. A more straight forward reading is the 1st Amendment as written guarantees freedom from religion.
