The Manhattan Declaration

Here is just a preview of the document.

"We are Christians who have joined together across historic lines of
ecclesial differences to affirm our right—and, more importantly, to embrace our
obligation—to speak and act in defense of these truths.

We pledge to each other, and to our fellow believers, that no power on
earth, be it cultural or political, will intimidate us into silence or
acquiescence.”“We recognize the duty to comply with laws whether we happen to
like them or not, unless the laws are gravely unjust or require those subject to
them to do something unjust or otherwise immoral.”

“…We will not comply with any edict that purports to compel our
institutions to participate in abortions, embryo-destructive research, assisted
suicide and euthanasia, or any other anti-life act; nor will we bend to any rule
purporting to force us to bless immoral sexual partnerships, treat them as
marriage or the equivalent, or refrain from proclaiming the truth, as we know
it, about morality and immorality and marriage and the family.”

A truly important document and stand for the current situation. Please visit this site and sign it. The document itself is only 7 pages long, so an easy read and compelling in the fight for religious conscience, freedom, and life.

The pillars applaud each and every principle in this effort and all that sign it. May God bless your efforts, our fight, and the conversion of those who do not agree with it.
