In an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Johnson told Hannity, “People are curious. What does Mike Johnson think about any issue under the sun?” “I said, well go pick up a Bible off your shelf and read it. That’s my world view, that’s what I believe,” he said.

And as it often is, behind a good man is a praying woman. When asked why his wife didn’t attend his ascension to House Speaker, Johnson replied, “She spent the last couple of weeks on her knees in prayer to the Lord and she’s a little worn out.”

Of course, a person who wears his faith on his sleeve seems to bring out the “crazy” in many Democrats, and the attacks have already started. Host of “Real Time,” Bill Maher, called Johnson a “Super, duper, uber Christian. I mean super Christ-y. Probably the worst of the election deniers… Loves Jesus, hates democracy,” according to Fox News. Maher also compared Johnson to the Maine shooter, saying, “I was reading about this horrible shooting in Maine. And, you know, we don’t know much about the guy yet, but apparently he heard voices and I thought ‘Is he that different than Mike Johnson?’” The Democrats may mock, but for many Americans, the sight of Johnson on his knees without fear of criticism assures us that Johnson isn’t looking for approval from the media or the polls, which can change from day to day like shifting sand. Instead, he wants to build his legacy on the Rock and on the Word of God. And that is the best foundation to build on.
