A group of more than 150 prominent Christian leaders have issued a clarion call to Christians to fight back against laws that violate their beliefs.
The group of pastors, professors, and ministry leaders unveiled the document called "The Manhattan Declaration: A Call of Christian Conscience," Nov. 20.
The 4,700 word declaration challenges Christians to break laws if they are unjust or immoral. It represents a push-back against secular thinking on issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage.
Dr. Timothy George, dean of Samford University's Divinity School and one of the document's co-authors, said the declaration "represents an ecumenism of the trenches that has been going on for a number of years among many denominations and confessional traditions."
George spoke more about this declaration on CBN Newschannel's Midday program. Click play for the interview.
