USCCB committee chair supports framework for dealing with Iran

April 14, 2015

The chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on International Justice and Peace Committee has welcomed the adoption of a framework by the United States, its allies, and Iran in addressing Iran’s nuclear weapons.

“The alternative to an agreement leads toward armed conflict, an outcome of profound concern to the Church,” Bishop Oscar Cantú of Las Cruces stated. “We encourage our nation to continue down this path. Now is the time for dialogue and building bridges which foster peace and greater understanding.”

    I didn't realize that the Bishops were experts in the field of nuclear weapons. Of course I heard that Albert Einstein was an expert in the New Testament.
