For almost 10 years, I’ve urged readers to sign the Manhattan Declaration. I won’t give a “5-star rating” to any candidate for office unless they’ve signed it. It’s a powerful statement about the intersection of faith and politics. Its purpose is to unite Christians before core Biblical principles to transform our government and society. More than 550,000 theologians, church leaders and ordinary Christians have signed it. It covers three key issues:
- The Sanctity of Life. A culture of death inevitably cheapens life in all its stages and conditions by promoting the belief that lives that are imperfect, immature or inconvenient are of no value … and therefore dischargeable.
- Dignity of Marriage. Marriage is the union of one man and one woman. Marriage is the first institution of human society – indeed it is the institution of which all other human institutions have their foundation.
- Freedom of Religion. No one should be compelled to embrace any religion against his will, nor should persons of faith be forbidden to worship God according to the dictates of conscience or to express freely and publicly their deeply held religious convictions.
