(’76 Editor) Americans from the major Christian faiths, seeing an imminent move by the civil power against God-given elements of a sustainable and free society, are putting their names to a resistance manifesto known as the Manhattan Declaration.
Catholic, Orthodox, and Evangelical leaders developed the declaration in recent weeks and released it on Nov. 20. It spells out why the biblically faithful citizen cannot consent to laws and policies that destroy innocent human life, redefine marriage as something other than the union of one man and one woman, or trample religious liberty. And it envisions the potential need for civil disobedience to such laws.
The Manhattan Declaration in full, some 4700 words, is here. A summary is here. The online signature page for adding one’s name, as more than 197,000 individuals have already done, is here. I signed in a gesture of wholehearted agreement and active support. Will you?
