Faith Based Statements on Nuclear Disarmament

From Daoism to Islam, Hinduism to Judaism, Roman Catholic to Unitarian Universalist, click here to read a hopeful array of faith based statements on nuclear disarmament.  These statements were collected by the Friends Committee on National Legislation, a Quaker lobby in the Public Interest.  The site also includes statements from many branches of the Christian tradition, including the National Association of Evangelicals, along with several ecumenical and interfaith organizations. 

For example, Roman Catholic Archbishop Renato Marino, Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations, insists, "Nuclear weapons cannot be justified and deserve condemnation."  The 1999 Parliament of the World's Religions asserted, "The threat posed to humanity and all other forms of life by the sheer destructioness of nuclear weapons presents an unacceptable risk for this and future generations.  This unacceptable risk presents a moral imperative for the elimination of nuclear weapons. 

Visit the Friends Committee on National Legislation's website to read the complete text of all of these strongs statements of faith and ethical mandates for life.
