Black Churches Condemn Obama Administration's Drone Policy as Murder and Evil

Washington DC - The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), a faith-based coalition of 34,000 churches comprised of 15 denominations and 15.7 million African Americans calls Obama's policy on the right to kill Americans who are associated with terrorist organizations either at home or abroad murder, which constitutes evil in the Christian tradition. The Holy Scripture says, "THOU SHALT NOT KILL".

This is extremely good news and I hope other church groups find their voice.

Yes, it is good news. I've never looked to churches as arbiters of morality, partly because they let things like this slide far too often. Still, lots of folks do look to them for that, and this ought to carry some weight with them.

Plus, Obama fanboys will have a hard time calling this church group a bunch of racists.

Does anyone know of any other major churches (let's say a million or more members in the U.S.) who have come out against this? I haven't heard of any, but for obvious reasons, that is a long way from saying none have.

I have not heard of any other church groups, but I don't imagine that sort of thing would be reported. Other than the Society of Friends and Church of the Brethren, I suspect that everyone has been mute, but I may be unjust. If the UCC had spoken out on this, I suspect I would have heard of it.
