Manhattan Declaration: A Filipino Christian Blogger's New Gig

I accepted an invitation to be a regular contributor/blogger for the Manhattan Declaration’s new blog site. The Manhattan Declaration is a 4,700-word declaration defending the sanctity of human life, traditional marriage and religious liberty in the United States. The declaration was released on November 2009 in New York City and to date has almost half a million signatures in support. Moreover, the Manhattan Declaration is a growing grassroot movement of people taking a principled stand on critical moral issues.

Though the development of the declaration was motivated by the moral problems the United States face today, Filipinos and evangelical Christians and Catholics around the world can also learn and approve its call for Christian consciousness. Sanctity of life, traditional marriage and religious liberty are important issues all Christians alike should be aware of and should be defending. Debates on these issues may not yet be as heated in the Philippines compared to the US; but it can be someday if Filipinos loose their understanding of absolute Biblical truth or fall into postmodern ideology.

As a Filipino-American and most of all as a follower of Jesus Christ, I read, signed and will blog for the Manhattan Declaration because I stand behind God's words on the three main issues addressed by the Declaration and I want to stop the looking down on Christianity by the secular and liberal bent of the US.
