What is the reason for it?
For so many prominent Christians signing Colson’s ecumenical, Manhatten Declaration?
“Oh. Yeah, that’s where people from various religions—Greek Orthodox. Roman Catholic, Mormons, and Christians agree to stand together to fight the inroads of anti-religious movements into our American culture.”
I guess that you could put it that way. It’s a strange mixture of sorts.
“How can they—from their differing perspectives—do this?”
Well, they’re supposed to stand together only where they agree.
“But they don’t agree on fundamentals.”
Of course not! They disagree—radically.
“How did this come about?”
Frances Schaffer first conceived and promoted the approach under the title “Co-belligerents.” We would fight together for common causes.
