Jen Psaki criticizes Speaker Mike Johnson for his Christian faith

October 31, 2023

Being a Christian in Congress is apparently frowned upon by Democrats, but only if one is a Republican.

According to Fox News, former White House press secretary Jen Psaki recently blasted newly-elected House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) for his religious beliefs, going as far as labeling him a "Christian fundamentalist."

Psaki, now an MSNBC host, made the remarks during a recent episode of Inside with Jen Psaki.

"First glance, Mike Johnson does seem fine," Psaki said. "Fine-ish. Conservative, yes. But he once started a civility caucus with a Democrat. And I mean, if nothing else, he wears a suit and has glasses."

She continued, "How threatening can this guy actually be?"

Psaki then played a clip of a video in which Johnson declared himself a "Bible-believing Christian," which was apparently offensive to Psaki and those who think like her.

"I am a Bible-believing Christian," Johnson said in the video clip. "Someone asked me today in the media, they said, 'Well, it’s curious. People are curious, what does Mike Johnson think about any issue under the sun?'" he said in the clip. "I said, ‘Well, go pick up a Bible off your shelf and read it. That’s my worldview.’"

"You heard that right," Psaki said in response to his comments in the video. "The Bible doesn’t just inform his worldview, it is his worldview."

Psaki, in an article for MSNBC, warned her followers that Johnson is a scary Christian man.

"It’s not just his political ideology that should scare us. Johnson is basically a Christian fundamentalist," Psaki wrote.

Shortly after Johnson was elected to the speakership, stunning Congress given that he flew under the radar of most, he proudly stood behind his Christian beliefs.

"I don’t believe there are any coincidences in a matter like this. I believe that Scripture and the Bible is very clear that God is the one that raises up those in authority. He raised up each of you, all of us. And I believe God has ordained and allowed each one of us to be brought here for this specific moment and this time. This is my belief," Johnson said at the time.
