Political Policy and the Bible

In an excellent Washington Post column yesterday, E.J. Dionne referred to a conversation he’d had with Representative Rosa DeLauro, (D) Connecticut, about Mike Johnson, who says he is guided by the Bible in his job as Speaker of the House. Ms. DeLauro, who is a devout Christian, cited half a dozen Bible passages, which Mr. Johnson evidently never read. If he were honest, he would attend to them and be guided by them. Then he would be able to call himself a true Christian instead of a perverted one.
