Secretary of Defense James Mattis comments on religion.
From a Defense Department transcript of an exchange on Nov. 16:
Q: Mr. Secretary, I would be remiss — I’m with the Christian Broadcasting Network, sir. Talk to me a little bit about your faith and how it’s shaped who you are and your goals, and also about how you make decisions.
A: SEC. MATTIS: That’s something I stay pretty private about.
Q: I understand.
