The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution grants religious freedom as an inalienable right. Indeed, intolerance is antithetical to our nation’s founding principles. Despite this mandate, there has been an alarming escalation of religious intolerance in our country recently, inflicting two sets of victims: those who are impugned because of their beliefs, and those whose fears are exploited by false, incendiary, misguided rhetoric.

Atlanta’s history is replete with the stories of giants who came before us, whose leadership guided us through critical moments. Today, we come together as religious, business, civic, academic, and philanthropic leaders, exhorting our fellow citizens to take inspiration from the courageous acts of our forebears and pursue the following principles:

1. Advance Interfaith Cooperation: We believe that our nation’s founding commitment to democracy with religious freedom demands that we pursue interfaith cooperation; this includes respect and accommodation for diverse religious and secular identities, positive relationships between those of different religious and philosophical views, and a commitment to working together across lines of difference to advance the common good.

2. Marshal Religious Diversity: We believe that Atlanta holds a special place in U.S. history as well as contemporary and future American and global spheres. The religious diversity at the heart of this city propelled the Civil Rights Movement and continues to stand as an asset that can enhance our region’s ability to respond to human rights challenges with innovative solutions.

3. Celebrate Atlanta’s Broader Significance: We believe that our city has made invaluable contributions to the betterment of our nation, and we call on Atlanta to once again serve as a beacon to the country and the world, showing the power and promise of interfaith cooperation.

4. Take a stand: We pledge our willingness to speak out and stand against acts of hate and intolerance that threaten the very foundation on which our society was founded.

A special thanks to Rev. Joanna Adams, Rabbi Peter Berg and Imam Plemon El-Amin for their significant contributions to promote this initiative. For more information on the Minister’s Manifesto of 1957 referred to in the film visit this website.

By endorsing this statement, we stand steadfastly behind the right of all Americans to embrace their various spiritual beliefs in an inclusive environment that is free of religious bigotry. In making this public statement, we offer no support for any political figure or for any specific legislative proposal. Rather, we reaffirm the importance of religious cooperation in which we, as Americans, respect each other’s right to worship, or not, as we please.

In 1957, eighty white ministers in Atlanta publicly endorsed what has been referred to as the Ministers Manifesto denouncing racial segregation. The statement was published in the Atlanta papers and subsequently the New York Times. We feel it is time to publish a similar document and start a movement for interfaith cooperation.

For more than a year, religious and thought leaders in Atlanta have met to denounce bigotry and enhance interfaith cooperation. Atlanta has a history of taking stands for human rights. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. and Atlanta Constitution Editor Ralph McGill are among the giants on whose shoulders we now stand.

We now ask you to join with us and stand against religious bigotry, violence and hate in Atlanta and around the world.
