House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.), who has openly discussed his deeply held Christian religious beliefs, will be a keynote speaker at an annual meeting of like-minded lawmakers.
Johnson will address the National Association of Christian Lawmakers, hosted at the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 5, Rolling Stone reported, mischaracterizing the group as “Christian Nationalist” in nature.
According to the event’s website, the group seeks to give its “biblical worldview” the force of law around the country by “abolishing abortion,” promoting “marriage between one man and one woman,” and “exposing the ungodly effort to undermine our culture by Leftists.”
NACL founder and former Arkansas state legislator Jason Rapert told the outlet earlier this year, “For far too long we have allowed one political party in our nation to hold up Sodom and Gomorrah as a goal to be achieved rather than a sin to be shunned.”
