New House Speaker Brutally Humiliates Hannity In LIVE Interview With Answer To On Big Question

During a recent public event, House Speaker Mike Johnson, who was recently elected, provided insight into his perspective or ideology, commonly referred to as his “worldview.” This occurred when he responded to a question regarding words he made that were perceived as homophobic.

On Wednesday, Johnson assumed the position of speaker, marking the culmination of a three-week period characterized by internal conflicts within the Republican Party. The backbencher, who was somewhat obscure, secured their initial election to the chamber in 2016 and has maintained a limited public presence till the present week.

During a televised interview, Sean Hannity engaged in a discussion with the recently appointed speaker at the Capitol, wherein he inquired about the speaker’s comments.

Hannity inquired “You once worked for the Alliance Defense Fund – a Christian advocacy group. And comments you made both in writing and advocacy for this group about homosexuality, calling it sinful destructive and not supporting gay marriage, quote, ‘no clear right to sodomy in the Constitution.’ You have been getting hammered on this. And I wanna ask you about it. I wanna know exactly, you know, where you stand. Some of these comments were 15 years ago.”

Johnson responded by stating, “I don’t even remember some of them. I was a litigator that was called upon to defend the state marriage amendments. If you remember back in the early 2000s, I think there [were] over 35 states, somewhere in that number, that the people went to the ballot in their respective states and they amended their state constitutions to say marriage is one man and one woman. Well, I was a religious liberty defense and was called to defend those cases in the courts.”

Johnson then asserted that homosexuality is a matter of personal choice and advocated for a biblical perspective, stating, “go pick up a Bible.”

“But I also genuinely love all people regardless of their lifestyle choices. This is not about the people themselves. I am a Bible-believing Christian. Someone asked me today in the media, they said, “It’s curious, 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 worldview. That’s what I believe and so I make no apologies for it.”

Subsequently, Hannity supplemented the speaker’s statement with an additional qualifying remark.

“That’s your personal worldview,” he noted.

Johnson reiterated, “That’s my personal worldview.”

On Wednesday, CNN’s KFile disseminated remarks made by Johnson pertaining to individuals identifying as LGBT.

In a 2005 op-ed, Johnson expressed the viewpoint that “Your race, creed, and sex are what you are, while homosexuality and cross-dressing are things you do. This is a free country, but we don’t give special protections for every person’s bizarre choices.”

Additionally, he expressed, “Homosexual relationships are inherently unnatural and, the studies clearly show, are ultimately harmful and costly for everyone,” which could lead to people marrying their pets.

In another instance, Johnson asserted that “Experts project that homosexual marriage is the dark harbinger of chaos and sexual anarchy that could doom even the strongest republic.”

Following the election of Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) as Speaker on Wednesday’s first ballot, the House swiftly approved the initial legislative action.

According to the Washington Examiner, the Republican-led chamber recently approved a bipartisan resolution expressing support for Israel by a significant margin of 412–10,seeking to denounce the violence and highlighting the United States’s dedication to defending a key ally.” The article further said that only a small number of Democrats on the far-left side of the political spectrum voiced objections.

“The four-page resolution was filed earlier this month, just days after Hamas launched an attack on Israel from Gaza, prompting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to declare war on Oct. 7. Six members voted present: Reps. Greg Casar (D-TX), Joaquin Castro (D-TX), Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), Chuy Garcia (D-IL), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Nydia Velazquez (D-NY),” according to the Examiner.

“Nine Democrats voted no: Reps. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY), Cori Bush (D-MO), Andre Carson (D-IN), Al Green (D-TX), Summer Lee (D-PA), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Delia Ramirez (D-IL), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). All are associated with or adjacent to the progressive ‘Squad,’” the outlet added.

According to the Examiner’s research, Omar and Tlaib have faced significant criticism for endorsing social media posts that echoed allegations made by Hamas over a fatal hospital strike in Gaza. Furthermore, they were then condemned for their delayed response in removing these posts.

Rep. Thomas Massie, a Republican from Kentucky, dissented from the resolution due to his objections to certain provisions. Specifically, he expressed disagreement with the inclusion of measures that would “an open-ended promise of military support that is so broad it could be interpreted to commit U.S. soldiers to the conflict.” These were among several points of contention for Rep. Massie.
