Vatican Opposed To Atomic Bombing Of Japan' FUTURE OP HUMANITY Rec. 2 p.m. LONDON, Aug. 7. The Vatican is absolutely opposed to the atomic bombing of Japan, according to an authoritative Vatican source, quoted by the Associated Press correspondent in Rome. "The Roman Catholic Church has equal pity for all those subjected to atomic bombing and cannot make any distinction between victims," the correspondent's informant said. "The discovery of the atomic bomb has caused an unfavourable impression in the Vatican because the use of atomic bombs might be the first link in a chain of unpredictable violence."
A Vatican Press bulletin says: "The atomic bomb revelations have made a deep Impression in Vatican City, not so much for the use already made of the new death instrument as for the sinister shadow that the discovery of this weapon casts over the future of humanity."
