Church condemns nuke manufacturers

Now that is a church that is clear about its mission. It reminds me of...
Luke 9:54-56
When His disciples James and John saw this, they said, "Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them?" 55 But He turned and rebuked them, [and said, "You do not know what kind of spirit you are of; 56 for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them."]

God help us.

Nuclear weapons manufacturers urged to resign following university visit
Representatives of the Atomic Weapons Establishment near Aldermaston in East Berkshire have met calls for their resignation after they visited the University of Birmingham to recruit students into the development and manufacture of weapons of mass destruction
Two weeks ago the Anglican Bishop of Reading, Stephen Cottrell, welcomed trainee ministers to services of lamentation at the Atomic Weapons Establishment at Aldermaston in Berkshire, where Trident missile warheads are made for British military submarines. 30 staff and students from the Queen’s Foundation and the University of Birmingham also attended.
"We...denounce the nuclear weapons industry in the name of our common humanity and for the sake of our shared hope
Far from seeking to attract people to join your ranks, you yourselves should offer your resignation in the interests of national prosperity and the cause of peace for all humanity.
