Senator Lankford Condemns Attack in Egypt
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Senator James Lankford (R-OK) issued the following statement on that terrorist attack against Coptic Christians in Egypt:
“Today’s Palm Sunday attack in Egypt on peaceful worshippers in their church is a horrible act of terrorism. Anti-religious and anti-Christian violence is alive and well throughout the Middle East, and the World. Radical Islamists kill Christians because they are Christians; Yezidis because they are Yezidis; and different Muslim sects because they believe in a different brand of Islam than them. The right to practice any faith, or have no faith, should be a fundamental human right of all people. The United States of America will always stand with people around the world who seek freedom of conscience and assembly.”
Last month, Lankford wrote about anti-religious genocide in an op-ed in The Hill newspaper.
