Pope on Nuclear Warfare

“To prioritize such spending is a mistake and a misallocation of resources which would be far better invested in the areas of integral human development, education, health and the fight against extreme poverty. When these resources are squandered, the poor and the weak living on the margins of society pay the price.”- Pope Francis
Problems with Nuclear Deterrence
1.Threatening with mass casualties is immoral because it threatens the life of innocent civilians.
2.Killing is not moral in any sense, especially when it is undeserved and involves many people and others property destruction.
3.Makes other countries need to stockpile nuclear weapons in order to have a response to nuclear threats, thus increasing the potential for mass destruction.
Solidarity- divides the “team” of humanity against itself in war, so we are unable to show camaraderie and solidarity
Care of God’s Creation- A nuclear attack can have a devastating effect on the environment in and surrounding the detonation spot. There are currently more than enough nuclear warheads in existence to destroy most life on earth.
Petition to End of the use of nuclear deterrence.
