WHEREAS, weapons of mass destruction are inconsistent with our moral and
religious principles; and
WHEREAS, the testing of nuclear weapons threatens mankind with disease and
early death, and future generations with hereditary defects; and
WHEREAS, the continued production of armaments diverts energy and wealth from
present human needs and postpones the rich future now within man's grasp;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: That the Unitarian Universalist Association affirms
its belief in total universal disarmament under controls and urges, as an
initial step, that the United States Government proceed with sincere,
conscientious and continuing negotiations for a treaty to effectively ban the
development and testing of nuclear weapons.
