Replacement of Trident is “unwarranted” and “unethical” say Churches

(from the Methodist Church website)

The Baptist Union of Great Britain, the Church of Scotland, the Methodist Church, the United Reformed Church and Quakers in Britain have said that the proposals to renew the Trident nuclear weapons system are “unwarranted” and “unethical.”

This announcement comes in advance of the Parliamentary debate on Trident is to take place, where the UK Government will seek approval to spend £41 billion on building new submarines to carry nuclear weapons.

The Churches have previously expressed dismay that the UK Government is resisting discussions sponsored by the United Nations on multilateral disarmament. UK Churches have been represented at Non-Proliferation Treaty conferences in New York and have sought for many years to influence Government policy on nuclear weapons. In 2015, 26 faith leaders called on the UK Government to join with others in developing a robust plan of action to lead to a world free of nuclear weapons.
