U.S. and world faith leaders are making the threat of nuclear weapons a top priority.
Michael Kinnamon, general secretary, National Council of Churches, said the organization hasn’t been as vocal on the issue in recent years but will now address “with urgency” the elimination of nuclear weapons.
Jonathan Frerichs, World Council of Churches program executive for nuclear disarmament and the Middle East, said the issue “never went away. ... We just took our eyes off the ball.”
