NAE’s Leith Anderson: Evangelicals Oppose Strike Against Syria

posted on September 5, 2013

Jonathan Merritt at Religion News Service reports that Leith Anderson, president of the National Association of Evangelicals, said that in polling, his organization found evangelical leaders did not support military intervention in Syria. In a personal statement sent to Merritt, Anderson writes, “Since the United States is the most powerful and prosperous nation on earth, there is an expectation that we lead against unjust and cruel regimes. Yet, we know that we are not big enough, powerful enough or prosperous enough to police hundreds of nations with billions of people. The difficulty is deciding when we will intervene and when we will allow injustices to go unchallenged.”
