Japanese bishops hold neutrality on peaceful nuclear power

Catholic World News - April 10, 2012

The Japanese Catholic bishops have declined to join other religious groups in a call to close the country’s nuclear power plants.

The Japanese bishops conference has indicated that it does not oppose involvement by individual priests or religious in the anti-nuclear demonstrations that have marked the anniversary of the disastrous accident at the Fukushima plant after the earthquake of March 2011. But the episcopal conference said that it would remain neutral on the subject of nuclear power production, following the lead of the Vatican. The Holy See has indicated cautious support for the peaceful use of nuclear energy.
