In November, Bill Donohue was one of 145 religious leaders across the U.S. that signed the Manhattan Declaration, a document of Orthodox Christians, Catholic and evangelical Christians which commits them to the defense of human life, marriage and conscience rights. It is unwavering in its opposition to abortion, gay marriage and violations of religious liberty.
The product of Catholic League board of advisor member Robert George and two prominent Protestants, Timothy George and Chuck Colson, the Manhattan Declaration drew significant media coverage, especially that part of the document which sanctions civil disobedience as a last resort. It was signed by many cardinals and bishops.
