Turkey Day at USCIRF
This morning, I had the opportunity to preside over my first hearing as the Chairman of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) -- and the commission's first in over a decade. The focus was religious freedom in Turkey, and I think you'll recognize some familiar faces who were called on to testify, including Pastor Andrew Brunson. Hear what he and other leaders had to say about the plight of religious communities in Turkey in the video below.
