The Roman Catholic Bishop of Brentwood, England, Thomas McMahon, led about 800 peaceful demonstrators in prayer Monday (Feb. 15) as they issued a "call to repentance" over the manufacture of nuclear weapons. It was an interfaith event protesting at the Aldermaston Atomic Weapons Establishment in Berkshire, England. They declared that nuclear weapons are "a great idolatry" and "an affront to the power of God."
