Iowa religious leaders preach against smoking

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Religious leaders in Des Moines preached against the smoking industry as a whole.

They say tobacco companies try to lie and manipulate to sell cigarettes and put lives at risk.

"It's not a denominational cause but it is a matter of faith for those persons who believe life is sacred," said one priest.

They say tobacco companies are targeting teen girls by using new packaging and brands to make smoking sound more appealing.
