On Sept. 20, Secretary Pompeo attended a Sunday Worship Service at the Prestonwood Baptist Church and shared his faith in his address “Keep Faith in the Public Square”. He emphasized as follows:
“Now, in our country, it’s true, you’re free to have no faith at all, and our nation doesn’t establish a state religion. That seems right, it’s what our founders contemplated. But we all, as we think about faith in the public square, need to be mindful of what countries look like when faith is vanished. We know the answer.
We can’t forget world history. A godless Adolf Hitler destroyed millions and millions of lives. Chairman Mao in China, and even now today, the Chinese Communist Party. Frankly, there is no regime that rivals the horrors that are taking place in the world, the destruction of the central idea of human dignity than what the Chinese Communist Party is undertaking today.
I considered it to be truly the stain of this century, and it’s part of the Chinese Communist Party’s war on faith. They want to drive faith out of their public square.
These are the challenges that require us to keep faith in our public square here in America and every place we interact. It’s we’re called to do as Christians, and I believe it is fundamentally what we are meant to be as Americans as well.
The truth is, if you keep faith in the public square, then American will be a better nation. The world will be a better place.”
