Sen. Lankford: People of Faith Targeted with a New 'Don't Ask Don't Tell'

"Wholesale persecution of Christians and people of faith is in full swing in the United States and it seems President Obama is seeking to destroy Christianity on an accelerated basis," says Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio.

Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) spoke out Thursday on his concerns for religious liberty in America, especially in light of the Supreme Court's ruling legalizing same-sex marriage and the recent case of a football coach placed on paid leave for praying publicly after games.

"People of faith in the workplace and in public settings have become the new individuals who are targeted towards don't ask don't tell: If you have faith, don't tell anyone, and don't ask anyone if you have faith, and if you have it, don't live it out publicly, because people don't want to see it," Lankford said at a Family Research Council event on defending religious liberty.
