Peace Churches Concerned About 'Back Door' Draft Among Poor, Minorities

-- "A coalition of historic 'peace churches' says they were told that the Pentagon does not plan to reinstate a military draft, but they remain concerned about a 'back door draft' that targets the poor and minorities.

Leaders of a dozen Mennonite, Quaker and Brethren churches that shun military service held a two-day meeting (March 4-5) outside Chicago to plan for 'alternative service' programs for conscientious objectors should a draft be reinstated. "
