A coalition of evangelical leaders released a "Christian manifesto" Tuesday asserting their belief that marriage should be between a man and a woman, and condemning the acceptance of "homosexual immorality or transgenderism."
The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood
The "manifesto," which is composed of 14 beliefs, rejects the idea that "otherwise faithful Christians should agree to disagree" on gay, lesbian and transgender issues. The leaders refer to this mentality as "moral indifference.. . . . . "White evangelicals voted overwhelmingly for Trump during the election -- 80 percent."
The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood was founded in 1987 to "to help the church defend against the accommodation of secular feminism," according to its website. The council focuses on outlining the differences between male and female roles in the home and church. It supports the biblical teaching that men must be Christlike leaders at home and in the church, and upholds wives' submission in marriage.
