SCN Statement on Iraq War

Posted by Spalding Hurst

May 25, 2004

We, the following members and associates of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, Kentucky, a community of Roman Catholic sisters and associate members based at Nazareth, Kentucky, call on the government of the United States to end the war in Iraq.
We affirm the sanctity of life, and we support peace as God’s plan for human interaction. We believe this war is unjustified and has caused wrongful loss of life and untold destruction of the environment.
For these reasons we charge our government to end this war, make peace in Iraq and address the needs for healing and reconciliation the war has caused in our world.
