Sen. Lankford held a hearing that pointed out that America’s inconsistency here in the U.S. harms our ability to promote religious freedom internationally.

As Senator Lankford observed: “When Navy chaplains are told what they can and cannot do, when individual state schools shut down the practice to be able to practice their own religion on campus, these become serious challenges to our example to the World of living out freedom of religion. When that gets diminished here, it becomes a serious issue to try to shine that beacon in other places.”
