People of Faith Call on Congress to Pass Legislation to Prevent Nuclear First Strike

Reason for signing

  • It is morally reprehensible for any nation to be the perpetrator of a first strike in warfare -- even more reprehensible when that first strike is a nuclear weapon or other weapon of mass destruction. The United States would compromise its national security and that of all nations if it were to take such illegitimate action and thereby of necessity have to engage in the subsequent demagoguery of trying to justify such an action.
