On Christmas Day, Senator-Elect James Lankford (R-OK) delivered a radio address for the GOP that dealt with the importance of religious freedom.

Lankford noted:

“Today, the joy of Christmas causes hundreds of radio stations around the country to play Christmas music all day, and people will exchange millions of gifts to remember the first gift of Christmas, the infant Jesus. As we see thousands of public and private Christmas trees and nativity displays around the country, they remind us again of the powerful American value built into our Constitution: our freedom of religion.”

He continued:

“Americans honor and respect each other’s faith, and we honor those that choose to have no faith. Under our freedom, no one is silenced because of their religious belief.

“For the millions of Americans, like my family, who believe that there is a creator God who can be known personally, Christmas is a celebration of Jesus’ offer of love and forgiveness for all people.”

“At Christmas we also celebrate our families. Generations reconnect. Children learn the importance of giving, more than receiving. Families look each other in the eye and forgive old hurts and start anew. The future of our nation is dependent on the future of our families. Broken families not only affect the people involved, but they have an impact on public policy decisions in Washington, D.C. and state capitols around the nation. America is strongest when families take care of each other and walk with one another through need and loss.”

Lankford is a GING-PAC endorsed lawmaker and formerly ran a Christian camp before being elected to the House of Representatives. Read more at The Christian Post.
