The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference condemned the terms of the Iranian nuclear deal in a statement released Friday, calling the agreement "not only bad; it is very dangerous."

"Last week, American negotiators and their negotiating partners signed off on an agreement that is supposed to tame Iran's once-secret and long-denied nuclear weapons program," the Hispanic evangelical group said. "The original goal was to prevent Iran from having any pathway to nuclear weapons. Unfortunately, this agreement falls far short of the original goals."
