Medley Signs on to Nonpartisan Letter Urging Support for Iran Framework Agreement
Roy Medley, General Secretary of American Baptist Churches USA, along with a wide range of American Christian leaders, has signed a nonpartisan letter urging support for the IRAN Framework Agreement. Medley was part of a U.S. Religious delegation that visited Iran last year.
From Sojourner’s, original post here:
A large and diverse group of Christian leaders today called on lawmakers to support the recent Framework Agreement on Iran’s nuclear program.
In a full-page ad (below) in Roll Call, the leaders affirmed the biblical commandment to seek peace and urged political leaders to support diplomatic efforts to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear-armed state. The ad was organized by Rev. Jim Wallis, Founder and President of Sojourners.
“As Christian leaders we are telling our political leaders: It is imperative that you pursue this agreement with integrity, commitment, and perseverance,” The ad says. “We will be praying for you.”
