PhoboQuotable - Eric Teetsel
vow to disobey laws that protect LGBT Americans from discrimination. Here's their description of the lapel pin:
Three stripes in a stylized “M” symbolize three core issues of life, marriage, and religious freedom and our diverse coalition of Catholics, Orthodox, and Evangelicals. The increasing size of stripes shows momentum – the building of a movement. Gradient orange invokes a flame, for truth, and the wildfire of enthusiasm for our cause. My hope is that soon this symbol – and the movement it represents – will be immediately recognizable nationwide.UPDATE: Rob Tinisai points out the below sad sad new message from the administrator of the Manhattan Declaration's Facebook page.
This morning I'm returning phone calls to some who wish to have their name removed from the Declaration. It's quite deflating. It seems a handful of signers don't wish to be affiliated with an ecumenical movement. How they missed that part when they first signed is anyone's guess. At Manhattan Declaration, we don't color over the distinctive characteristics of any Christian tradition; rather, we seek to be united despite those differences, in faith in Jesus Christ, to accomplish a mission we can all agree is of the utmost importance. Thank you to the vast majority of you who have signed your name and left it there.
