In a resurfaced video from 2022, Speaker of the House Mike Johnson has admitted to an unusual practice he shares with his son: monitoring each other's internet pornography consumption.

This revelation came to light during a discussion at Cypress Baptist Church in Benton, Louisiana, on the topic of the "War on Technology."

Johnson, the Louisiana representative, explained that he and his 17-year-old son Jack use an "accountability software" named Covenant Eyes.

This software scans all activity on their phones and other devices, sending weekly reports to each other as accountability partners. Johnson proudly mentioned that his son has maintained a clean slate in these reports.

The video, unearthed by the user Receipt Maven last week, has raised questions about the implications of such practices.

Receipt Maven expressed concerns about the potential compromise of Johnson's devices by allowing a third-party tech company to scan and upload reports of his electronic activities. This raises broader issues about privacy and data security, particularly given Johnson's position as a US Congressman.

Since being elected Speaker of the House in October, Johnson's background as a staunch Christian nationalist with firm anti-LGBTQ stances has been scrutinized.

His association with the Alliance Defending Freedom and controversial views on issues such as abortion and school shootings have been a focal point of this scrutiny.

Johnson, in a recent Fox News interview, reiterated his pro-life stance and his belief in the sanctity of life as per his Christian faith.

While he has not proposed any measures against contraception or IVF treatment, he did not deny the possibility of voting against contraception in the future.

This development offers a glimpse into the personal practices of a prominent political figure and how they intersect with public concerns about privacy, technology, and the role of personal beliefs in political life.
