Abstract

While this paper is concerned with social teaching in the Catholic Church, I must point out that social action in Canadian churches has taken on an ecumenical approach. For example, on Ash Wednesday, 1988, 12 leading Canadian religious bodies, including the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Anglican Primate of Canada, and spokespersons for the Lutherans and Disciples of Christ rejected “increased defence spending as a priority” and that “nuclear weapons have no place in the national defence policies.”
