Far right to issue manifesto, drag Big Apple into rotten attacks

by Jeremy Hooper

Today in DC, convicted Watergate felon Chuck Colson will join with 145 other evangelicals (including NOM founder Robert George) to issue a "manifesto" against gays and liberals. Here's what Chuck has to say about us, complete with Hitler comparisons:

And here's more from Chuck, this time focusing on "non-cooperation with evil":

"This kind of principled non-cooperation with evil won’t be easy—there are signs of a reduced tolerance for that most basic of American values, religious freedom. As we’ve discussed many times on BreakPoint, Christian organizations are losing tax-exempt status for refusing to buy in to homosexual “marriage.” Some are going out of business rather than cave into immoral demands—such as placing children for adoption with homosexual couples. Conscientious medical personnel are being sued or being fired for obeying their consciences.

I say, enough is enough. The Church must take a stand. And with the release of the Manhattan Declaration, that’s exactly what we are doing."
The Manhattan Declaration

Oh, and here's The New York Times' take on the so-called "Manhattan Declaration: A Call of Christian Conscience”:

"The signers include nine Roman Catholic archbishops and the primate of the Orthodox Church in America. They want to signal to the Obama administration and to Congress that they are still a formidable force that will not compromise on abortion, stem-cell research or gay marriage. They hope to influence current debates over health care reform, the same-sex marriage bill in Washington, D.C., and the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation."

We'll get you the document as soon as we have it. Try to contain your excitement.

**UPDATE: Here it is: 'The Manhattan Declaration'
