Where Did the Manhattan Declaration Go?

Paul O'Donnell takes a backwards look at the Manhattan Declaration and asks what impact it's had:

The declaration, it's true, doesn't cover much new ground: It states that the sanctity of marriage and life are still what Christians should fight for. Its third plank, proclaiming freedom of religious conscience, is very of-the-moment. With a ferocity about "resisting tyranny" that flashes more of Glenn Beck's brand of civil disobedience than Gandhi's, the signers promise not to "comply with any edict that purports to compel our institutions to participate in abortions, embryo-destructive research, assisted suicide and euthanasia, or any other anti-life act; nor will we bend to any rule purporting to force us to bless immoral sexual partnerships, treat them as marriages . . . or refrain from proclaiming the truth, as we know it."
