Nuclear weapons

Former Secretary of state George Shultz has joined the effort to eliminate nuclear weapons. The Washington Post blog God in Government notes:

The fact is that Schultz has been working on that for a while with some old friends -- former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, ex-Senator Sam Nunn and former Defense Secretary William J. Perry.
. . .
It's another issue around which Christians of various stripes have been able to achieve at least some common ground, including global warming, immigration, poverty and abortion.

This is the latest news in the on-going effort to eliminate nuclear weapons. Statements on this issue from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops can be found here.
