'Manhattan Declaration' commits to engage culture
In a 4,700-word statement named the Manhattan Declaration, about 150 evangelical, Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox signers said they were coming together to "embrace our obligation" to speak and act in support of the dignity of all human beings, marriage as the union of a man and a woman, and the freedom to express religious convictions.

"[W]e will not comply with any edict that purports to compel our institutions to participate in abortions, embryo-destructive research, assisted suicide and euthanasia, or any other anti-life act," the statement says, "nor will we bend to any rule purporting to force us to bless immoral sexual partnerships, treat them as marriages or the equivalent, or refrain from proclaiming the truth, as we know it, about morality and immorality and marriage and the family. We will fully and ungrudgingly render to Caesar what is Caesar's. But under no circumstances will we ...

Brimstone,

I have just read some of the declaration.

J. Mac. has rightly stated that their is an implicit assumption that R. Catholics, et al., are Christians, eg., "...fellow believers...", "...As Christians...", "...we claim the heritage of...Christians...".

Would you object if these clause were written in the declaration with the exception that Jehovah Witnesses and/or
Seventh Day Adventists and/or the Mormons were fellow signatories instead of the Roman Catholics?

There is NO NEED. Remember, unity must always include truth with the primary truth being the true gospel of Jesus Christ, always contending against another gospel than the gospel of grace!

Ah, true, Brimstone, but they should not be doing it as a "so-called" Christian group, one thing this is not The Purpose of the Local Church and [on] Community Issues. Or even large church organizations, such as the SBC. They probably could form a political action group, to protest such things and even get more participants from the Muslim, Hindu, or Jewish groups.

Christians that hold some common moral principles in common with non-Christians, such as Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses, etc. should still stand apart from them. The Truth Behind The Church's Purpose is not to be chasing after social causes.

"We call on the entire Christian community to resist sexual immorality, and at the same time refrain from disdainful condemnation of those who yield to it. Our rejection of sin, though resolute, must never become the rejection of sinners."

Commendable convictions regardless of their theological and doctrinal differences.

Society needs this kind of collective response to the way which politicians and the secular bureaucrats are redefining moral standards in the community.

Shame on you Albert Mohler, you should know better than to be anything but lukewarm to anything that even remotely looks like Reversing the Reformation, I suppose next will see attempts in reviving Promise Keepers and the Rising Tide of Ecumenism?

This is giving a pretense to the idea that many of these groups are Christians, and they are not! Is the One True Church Roman Catholic? You can take moral stands, but some groups you should stand apart from even if you agree with some of their moral stands.
