Urge American Bishops to Speak Out Against Nuclear War

This petition had 600 supporters

We’re asking you, as leaders of Christ’s followers and shepherds of His Flock to speak out against the injustice of our elected civil leaders and not just write a letter, but get into the pulpits of your area and address your flock and do it with the same vigor you address the abortion issue.

          The first and primary subject that should equal your abortion issue is a President and his Republican Congress who suggests using nuclear weapons to destroy an entire nation of God’s children. If this doesn’t match the abortion issue, then your voicelessness here might very well resound throughout the kingdom of God.  Of course you might be looking at a similar statement as that of Bishop Romero who said to the military in his country, “If you are killing your brothers and sisters, you cannot come to communion”.

          Christianity has been impotent for much of the last generation because of the silence of its leaders.  You tell me if it makes sense when German Catholics kill American Catholics during the 2nd world war and it all takes place while the ordained leaders of the Body of Christ remain silent to the Gospel.

          Please sign this petition to give our shepherds the critical support they need to imitate the Christ who loves us no matter what race, religion or nationality we are.
