An association of 34,000 churches has come out strongly against drones.

The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), a faith-based coalition of 34,000 churches comprised of 15 denominations and 15.7 million African Americans say President Obama’s drone policy “constitutes evil in the Christian tradition.”

NBCI says “there can never be a legal rationale that gives a government the right to destroy a human being that God created.”

“I do not know what to say after the pronouncement of this evil policy. This policy has led me to a life of prayer for the soul of this administration and for this President. Anyone who has had anything to do with formulating a policy like this either in the Bush or Obama administration will have to answer before God one day. May God have mercy on their souls,” Rev. Anthony Evans, president of NBCI said in a statement.
