At the Western Conservative Summit, we sit down with Colorado Springs congressman Doug Lamborn, who is on the Armed Services Committee and a defender of the first amendment. His district has five major military installations; he believes that some officers are too restrictive in their interpretation of the separation of church and state. Rep. Lamborn intervened in the case of Col. Leland Bohannon, a decorated US Air Force officer who was relieved of command, in violation of his first amendment right to practice his Christian faith. Col. Bohannon was reinstated.

American Thought Leaders is a new Epoch Times show available on Facebook and YouTube.
