Watch: Speaker Johnson shuts down CNBC Anchor, Delivers Important Civic History Listen On Church And State
Many people deeply hold onto a false account of this country’s inception in which our founding political ideas developed without reference to Christianity, and that the founders desired a strict separation of church and state.
But if you actually read the constitution, which the left obviously has not, our founders preserved religious liberty to such a great extent that they made it the first protected right.
House Speaker Mike Johnson has made it very clear that he will not shy away from letting his faith be a guiding principle in Washington. Earlier this week, he proclaimed that "everybody's vibrant expression of faith" is “such an important part of who we are as a nation."
Johnson called the separation of church and state a “misnomer” when CNBC co-anchor Andrew Ross Sorkin attempted to corner him about praying on the floor of Congress after being sworn in.
“The separation of church and state is a misnomer —people misunderstand it,” Johnson said during “Squawk Box.”
Obviously, Sorkin had no clue that the "separation of church and state” doesn't exist in the Constitution.
“Of course, it comes from a phrase that was in a letter that Jefferson wrote — it’s not in the Constitution,” Johnson added.
Johnson referred to Jefferson’s letter sent to the Danbury Baptist Association of Connecticut in 1802.
“What he was explaining is that they did not want the government to encroach upon the church, not that they didn’t want principles of faith to have influence on our public life. It is exactly the opposite,” Johnson said.
This has become the left’s separationist dogma that they use to justify a secular system where religion is ultimately stripped from public life.
The Constitution only prevents people from imposing their beliefs onto others. It was never intended to keep religion out of public policy.
He then referenced Washington’s Farewell Address which stated, “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.”
He also mentioned Adams’ 1978 letter to the Massachusetts Militia which read, “Our constitution is made only for moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.”
“They knew that it would be important to maintain our system,” Johnson said. “And that’s why I think we need more of that — not an establishment of any national religion, but we need everybody’s vibrant expression of faith because it’s such an important part of who we are as a nation.”
The real reason that liberals claim that religion is off limits in public life is because they truly believe they are supreme over all religious values.
The Constitution actually preserves religious liberty for all faiths.
