Manhattan Declaration: A Call of Christian Conscience




On Nov. 20, 2009 a group of prominent Christian clergy, ministry leaders and scholars released the Manhattan Declaration, which addresses the sanctity of life, traditional marriage and religious liberty.

The Manhattan Declaration is a 4,732-word statement signed by a movement of Orthodox, Catholic and evangelical Christian leaders who are collaborating around moral issues of great concern. Its 125+ signers affirm the sanctity of human life, marriage as defined by the union of one man and one woman, and religious liberty and freedom of conscience. The Manhattan Declaration endorses civil disobedience under certain circumstances. The Manhattan Declaration was publicly released at a press conference (watch video) at the National Press Club in Washington on Friday, Nov. 20, 2009.













I would encourage each of us to prayerfully consider signing this document with Christian believers across the nation who support the sanctity of life, traditional marriage and religious liberty by endorsing the Manhattan Declaration. Spread the word and take a stand with your Orthodox, Catholic and Evangelical Brothers and Sisters in Christ. It's NOT Political. It's Conscientious and Prudent.

Here is a copy of the Manhattan Declaration.

This is one of the most important Declarations you may ever have a chance to put your name on in support. Edmund Burke once stated that 'all it takes for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing.' It's time we got off the sidelines and got into the game.
