Louisiana Rep. Johnson Claims California Atheists Are Trying to Spy on Students

Sep 20, 2018

By Griffin Connolly

Rep. Mike Johnson, who represents a vast swath of Louisiana’s northwestern corner, accused California atheist groups of trying to spy on students at a school in his district by taking covert video.

“WARNING TO OUR FRIENDS IN BOSSIER SCHOOLS (Please share),” Johnson wrote on Facebook Tuesday, referring to Louisiana’s Bossier Parish (the state’s equivalent of a county) that includes parts of Shreveport.

“Last night we received very credible information that atheist litigation groups in CA have contacted private investigators in our area to try to hire them to obtain hidden video of Christian student groups and activities at Benton High School and potentially other Bossier Parish schools,” Johnson wrote.

The Louisiana Republican’s post was first reported by the Shreveport Times. Johnson’s spokeswoman, Ainsley Holyfield, declined the Times’ requests for information about the California litigation groups and the congressman’s sources.

  • Louisiana? is that not a place where evolution is taught to be evil? – what facts does this fine politician have to support his claim? I guess when your church has an epic P.R. issue with molestation you need to deflect away from the critical issues – that way the sheep can continue to graze in happy dilusional bliss. I gotta wonder though, dont they realize that theyre just building a large group of future atheists / agnostics 🤠 as Seinfeld used to say “what a shame!” lmao

    Oh dear! The investigators are producing video records of suspected illegal activities to challenge the “do and deny it” approach to lying for Jesus!

    A bit like using CCTV or dash cams, to challenge “do-it-and-deny-it” robbers or motoring offenders!

    The faith-thinkers seem most upset at the prospect of being caught behaving like lying politicians – or behaving like Trump – discovering denied comments had been recorded for the record!
