The Manhattan Declaration
We are Orthodox, Catholic, and evangelical Christians who have united at this hour
to reaffirm fundamental truths about justice and the common good, and to call upon
our fellow citizens, believers and non-believers alike, to join us in defending them.
These truths are:
1. the sanctity of human life
2. the dignity of marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife
3. the rights of conscience and religious liberty.
Inasmuch as these truths are foundational to human dignity and the well-being of society,
they are inviolable and non-negotiable.
Because they are increasingly under assault from powerful forces in our culture,
we are compelled today to speak out forcefully in their defense, and to commit ourselves
to honoring them fully no matter what pressures are brought upon us and our institutions
to abandon or compromise them.
We make this commitment not as partisans of any political group but as followers of Jesus Christ,
the crucified and risen Lord, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life
