â€śThe Roman Catholic â€śManhattan Declarationâ€ť was one of the most deceptive statements ever written. It affirmed that human reason apart from and independent of Scripture was the ultimate and final Judge of truth and morals. It was an affirmation of Catholic Natural Religion, Natural Theology, and Natural Law. It was also a protest statement against the Reformation doctrine of Sola Scriptura in which the Bible alone is the ultimate authority over doctrine and morals.â€ť

â€śThe New York Times Magazine, Dec. 20, 2009 carried an article by David Kirkpatrick on his old mentor and friend Dr. Robert P. George, a Roman Catholic â€śnatural law theoristâ€ť who teaches at Princeton University.â€ť
â€ťDuring the interview, Dr. George is quite candid about the theological and philosophical basis of the â€śManhattan Declaration,â€ť â€¦ Dr. George is the hand behind the Declaration from beginning to end.â€ť
â€śGeorge expressed his amazement that so many â€śevangelicalsâ€ť signed the Manhattan Declaration, which is clearly based on Roman Catholic natural law theory. He noted that evangelicals historically denied Catholic natural law and preached that the Bible was the ultimate authority over faith and practice.â€ť
â€ťHow did he get so many Protestants to sign on to his Catholic Declaration when by signing they were unwittingly rejecting the very basis of the Reformation? George stated, â€śI sold my view about reason!â€ť (p.29) He tricked them into throwing out the Bible and putting human reason in its place!â€ť
