Happy Chanukah from Focus on the Family

by Jeremy Hooper

This is how Focus on the Family president Jim Daly sums up that new anti-gay, anti-progressive manifesto that the evangelicals are calling The Manhattan Declaration :

"What [The Manhattan Declaration] is saying is, if you want a fulfilling, rewarding, joyful, peaceful life, then embrace Jesus Christ as your Savior."
Christian Leaders Stand for Righteousness [FOF]

Unless, of course, you are someone of a faith, sexual orientation, political party, or stance that doesn't fully jibe with the evangelical worldview. In which case they will spend their days working to use their own faith to rob you of all of the fulfillment, civil rewards, joy, and peace that they can get their hands on.

But hey, at least Mr. Daly abstained from adding "or else" to the end of his commandment. Judging by the decades of intolerance that his organization has displayed, that must have taken great restraint.

Your thoughts

The adds confirmation to my assertion that the Manhattan Declaration is not about abortion or homosexuality at all. Rather, it is about defining Christianity and an effort by one ideological branch to diminish and subjugate the other branches. They don't care in the slightest about Jews in this matter because they aren't part of the debate over who is "really" a Christian.

You'll notice that while there are virulently homophobic rabbis out there, this group made to effort to include them.
