The Church of Scotland has restated its firm opposition to the existence of nuclear missiles – a position which it has held for over 30 years – ahead of the Westminster debate on the safety of Trident.
Rev Sally Foster-Fulton, who is Convener of the Church of Scotland’s Church and Society Council, said: ‘There is no place in Scotland, the UK or any part of the world for weapons which unleash unspeakable evil and destruction. To hold them as a threat is abhorrent. To consider replacing our current nuclear capability is morally wrong. We need rid of these weapons and we need rid of them now.’
