Bishops vs. Pope

January 1982
National Review;1/22/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 1, p18
The article focuses on the criticism of the arms race by various bishops in the U.S. and Pope John Paul II. American bishops have recently emerged as sharp critics of the arms race in general, and U.S. President Ronald Reagan's Administration's policies in particular. 54 of the nation's 301 Catholic bishops are members of the Pax Christi, a movement related to nonviolence. The Vatican position, indeed, could be endorsed by President Reagan as he recently called for the elimination of all medium-range missiles from Europe.
