The Manhattan Declaration

Many issues confront Christians at the dawn of the third millennium: AIDS, nuclear proliferation, poverty, and so on. All are important, and we cannot take a pass on any of them if we are to obey the Lord’s command to be salt and light in a decaying and darkening culture.

Yet I do believe we are to have priorities, which is why I as an individual have just signed the Manhattan Declaration, which lists our three highest priorities in society as standing up for life, marriage, and religious liberty. Without these bedrock freedoms related to human dignity, the rest of our commitments will be on shaky ground indeed.

Read the Manhattan Declaration for yourself and see if you agree. If you do, please sign it.

And spread the word.
