Many actions of the General Convention of the Episcopal Church are laughable – but sometimes they are truly vile. A sect that is ambivalent or dismissive toward its own Scripture and Creeds speaks with absolute blind faith on its political positions, as evidenced in Resolution A042…
Resolved, the House of Bishops concurring, That the 76th General Convention condemn in any nation the first use of armed force in the form of a preventive or pre-emptive strike that is aimed at disrupting a non-imminent, uncertain military threat; and be it further
Resolved, That the Convention strongly admonish the United States Government to renounce its 2002 policy that asserts the right to act, by armed force if necessary, to “forestall or prevent” threats even if “uncertainty remains as to the time and place of the enemy’s attack”; and be it further
Resolved, That ordained and lay leadership of The Episcopal Church promote the renunciation of “first use” military action as the established teaching of our Church, encouraging parish study and public witness.
