Bill Donahue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, strongly condemned the plan.The Christianophobic bigots single out Christianity. They never go after any non-Christian faiths, despite the fact that they're ALL opposed to homosexual "marriage".
“There’s a word for this--it’s ‘fascism.’ They’re just out to publicly destroy people,” Donahue told CNSNews.com.
“Are they going to start harassing, intimidating, stalking priests?” Donahue asked. “This is a religious cleansing; this is a witch hunt. This is simply beyond the pale.”
Why do the Christianophobic hatepushers seek to destroy the Church's public image by outing a few closeted-homosexual "priests" who don't belong there in the first place? It's not the Church's fault they're there, as the Church cannot possibly know who is and who isn't a closet homosexual.
Do I hear breaking glass?
It's about civil rights, folks. Civil rights!
The Manhattan Declaration: Christians take stand for rights, prepared to make personal sacrifices to defend faith from Hard-Left Christianophobic bigots, fascists
Over 150 Orthodox, Catholic and evangelical Christian leaders have signed the Manhattan Declaration, a pledge in defense of life, religious liberty and traditional marriage, a line in the sand of the culture war warning that Christians will resort to civil disobedience if necessary rather than retreat from these three moral principles.Tens of thousands of other Christians have added their own signatures to those of the leaders.
Yes, folks- we're here, we're Christian and we're never going away. We're here to stay, and we won't ever change for anyone, so everyone better get used to it.
Let the Obamacrat Reich make martyrs of the Christians if they want. Doing so will only serve to further expose the Obamacrats as the bigots and fascists we know they are.
"We are Christians who have joined together across historic lines of ecclesial differences to affirm our right – and, more importantly, to embrace our obligation – to speak and act in defense of these truths," the declaration states. "We pledge to each other, and to our fellow believers, that no power on earth, be it cultural or political, will intimidate us into silence or acquiescence."
At a D.C. press conference last week, Dr. Robert George of Princeton University, one of three leaders who drafted the declaration, affirmed that if laws require Christian doctors and hospitals to perform abortion or euthanasia, if the government demands churches bless homosexual 'marriage' or any other dictates attempt to force Christians to act against their moral convictions, there will be no compromise. Recalling the actions of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. years before, George said there may even be call for Christians to engage in civil disobedience:
"We hope and pray that it does not come to this," George said, "that the impositions on conscience will not require anybody to practice civil disobedience. But if it comes to it, as it came to it for Dr. King on the great issue of racial justice, then we have to be prepared to make sacrifices."
