1969 General Resolution

BE IT RESOLVED: That the 1969 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association opposes the development, construction, and deployment of any anti-ballistic missile system, and urges the United States and House of Representatives to oppose the funding of the Safeguard program.

THE 1968 GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST ASSOCIATION URGES: That the United States terminate its multi-billion dollar anti-ballistic missile program. The anti-ballistic missile pro-gram may continue, despite increasing opposition throughout the country and in the Congress. Such a pro-gram can intensify the arms race, provide a false sense of security since it is only marginally effective as a defensive weapon, and involves a large expenditure of funds which can better be employed elsewhere.

THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY ALSO OPPOSES: The further development, construction, and deployment of multi-warhead offensive missiles, including the so-called MIRV.
