On Tuesday, Sen. James Lankford took to Twitter to post a speech he gave last year at the Conservative Political Action Conference addressing religious freedom, saying:
“If we believe in freedom of religion, that is all faiths. We stand for the person next to us to have a different faith than ours and for their right to practice their faith because we have a right to practice ours.”

The Oklahoma senator went on to say that despite his own faith as a Christian, he believes it is a conservative principle in America to protect the religious freedoms of individuals who hold other beliefs.
