USCCB renews call for nuclear arms reduction

Catholic World News - May 16, 2012

An official of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, joined by representatives of arms control groups and the Union of Concerned Scientists, met with a deputy national security advisor on May 7 and presented him with a petition calling for nuclear arms reduction.

The petition urged President Barack Obama to “end outdated U.S. nuclear war-fighting strategy, dramatically reduce the number of U.S. nuclear weapons and the number of submarines, missiles, and bombers that carry those weapons, and take U.S. nuclear weapons off high alert.”
