More than 50 prominent Christians "from across the political spectrum," but mostly from the Christian left, have signed onto a declaration titled "Called to Resist Bigotry — A Statement of Faithful Obedience" that calls on Christians to resist rallying around "demagogic" political candidates who rely on exploiting anger and "hatred" to gain support.
