More of Speaker Mike Johnson’s Extreme Anti-LGBTQ+ Past and Extremist Ties Is Exposed

Author: Christopher Wiggins

Speaker Mike Johnson has a previous clientele list made up of a range of homophobes and anti-abortion figures.

His office provided a statement to the Daily Beast emphasizing the nature of the attorney-client relationship. The statement said that representing a client in a First Amendment dispute does not equal endorsement of everything the client has said or done. However, the report notes that Johnson has not publicly denounced the actions or words of these former clients despite their alignment with violent rhetoric.

In addition to representing clients with anti-LGBTQ+ stances, Johnson himself has made several controversial statements regarding the LGBTQ+ community over the past two decades.

Johnson’s history of disparaging remarks includes his characterization of homosexuality as “inherently unnatural” and a “dangerous lifestyle.” Furthermore, Johnson has been vocal in his opposition to marriage equality, once claiming that same-sex marriage legalization could lead to extreme scenarios, such as people marrying their pets.
