(TheRedWire.com) – Following Mike Johnson’s election as the new House Speaker, more than 12,000 people have signed a Christian petition condemning him as a “false prophet.”
The petition was started by online Christian group Faithful America, which, along with the petition, released their second-annual campaign, “False Prophets Don’t Speak for Me,” in which Johnson was mentioned. The list also includes other prominent Republican figures, including former President Donald Trump, Laura Ingraham, a Fox News host, New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) self-proclaimed host Julie Green, Rep. Jim Jordan, and Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick. All the people included in the list are called “false prophets.”
The petition launched specifically targets Johnson and was first released after the Representative became the House Speaker. In the petition, it is noted that it was “hard to overstate the threat” posed on both the church and democracy by Christian nationalism. They proceeded to say that Johnson was the “most Christian-nationalist” House Speaker in the nation’s history.
The petition, which had 12,946 signatures as of Saturday afternoon, aims to show that the “false prophets” would never be representatives of Jesus’ words for the Christian community.
Last month, Johnson was elected as the House speaker after weeks of the House Republicans infighting and being unable to decide on a replacement for former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, who was ousted through a motion to vacate.
Faithful America, in the petition, notes that a leader drives Christian nationalism and that it is these leaders and “false prophets” that pose the biggest threat to the country.
