Sam Brownback Takes State Department Religious Freedom Post

Last Wednesday, President Trump picked conservative Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback as the next ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom. Former Ambassador-at-Large David Saperstein said, “This is a very strong appointment, and I look forward to working with him in furthering the cause of religious freedom around the globe.” And Tom Farr, president of the Religious Freedom Institute in Washington, D.C., told the Kansas City Star, “Senator Brownback will, I sincerely hope, see this position as contributing to the national security of the United States.” There is no official start date for Brownback since the Senate still needs to confirm him, and that won’t likely happen until after the August recess.
