Last month the White House welcomed a remarkable group of people at the second annual Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom. Featured guests included several who likely have the Trump Administration to thank for being alive. Among those were Pastor Andrew Brunson, who was held in a Turkish prison on bogus charges of aiding terrorism, and was finally released after two years behind bars.
Vice President Mike Pence spoke at the event:

As Vice President of the United States, I stand for the freedom of religion that animated the American founding and is enshrined in our Bill of Rights. But this is a special day for me as well because, on a personal level, my faith in Jesus Christ has brought meaning and purpose to me and my family every day of my life.
