Bishops Issue Statement on the War in Iraq

On November 13, 2007, Bishop William S. Skylstad, as president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a statement on Iraq entitled: "A Call for Bipartisan Cooperation on Responsible Transition in Iraq." In this statement the bishops seek to draw on Catholic moral teaching to continue to raise ethical questions regarding the War in Iraq and the involvement of our nation.

To share the moral guidance of the Conference more widely, a summary of USCCB perspectives on Iraq and Question-and-Answer format was released with the Presidential Statement. The Q&A can be useful in discussion groups and educational settings in parishes and schools.
