Prevention of Space Weaponization (81205-C1-¶160.D)

Amend ¶160.D to read:
  
The universe, known and unknown, is the creation of God and is due the respect we are called to give the earth.  We therefore reject any nation’s efforts to weaponize space and insist that all nations pursue the peaceful and collaborative development of space technologies and of outer space itself.

Rationale

Outer space – the heavens – is God’s creation.  Efforts to weaponize space will weaken national security and foreign diplomacy by inciting other nations to pursue a new international arms race that will endanger all persons throughout the earth while also violating international anti-proliferation treaties.
