The "Manhattan Declaration": The Manifesto That's Shaking America [reminder]

148 Church leaders, including Archbishop John Nienstedt of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, last weeked signed The Manhattan Declaration.

The Manhattan Declaration was announced on Nov. 20, 2009, by Chuck Colson, Founder of The Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview. Colson drafted the declaration along with Robert George (Professor, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University) and Timothy George (Professor, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University).

"The Manhattan Declaration is a wake-up call—a call to conscience—for the church," said Colson. "It is also a crystal-clear message to civil authorities that we will not, under any circumstances, stand idly by as our religious freedom comes under assault." [more]
