Religion and the UN

July 1965
America;7/10/1965, Vol. 113 Issue 2, p37
The author comments on the move of the United Nations to include world religious leaders in its organization. He attributes the move to a widening perspective or a desperation in a political world that has been marked by armed conflicts for the past several years. He points out that the UN is inducing religious leaders into its membership when it invited seven world religious groups to its Convocation of Religion for World Peace on June 27, 1965 in San Francisco, California to discuss the topic of effective disarmament.
