GA Policies on Vietnam

Both the UPCUSA and PCUS approached the Vietnam War from a Just War position. At the beginning of the war, both accepted that the U.S. entered the war to resist Communist aggression. They affirmed U.S. efforts at peace, but also counseled military restraint and negotiation. The denominations promoted the right of dissent and conscience regarding the war, and eventually came to call for U.S. withdrawal from the war.
