Scottish Bishops condemn Government's Trident decision
Comment Email Print
 The Bishops' Conference of Scotland has condemned the Government's decision to go ahead with the renewal of the Trident missile system. At their meeting in Glasgow yesterday, the Scottish Bishops re-iterated their stance against nuclear weapons stating: "Since our first statement on the issue in 1982, Scotland,s Catholic Bishops have opposed the existence of nuclear weapons in our country. We renewed that opposition earlier this year with a call to the British government not to renew the Trident system." The Bishops added: "We are dismayed to hear the Prime Minister confirm his support for a new generation of nuclear missiles. His decision flies in the face of widespread opposition from all sections of society and is deeply regrettable. Far from being weapons which keep peace, nuclear weapons imperil peace." Source: SCMO
