Of course we wouldn't John.
However we would note that ecumenism is alright for heretics such as the Roman Catholic church, Anglicans, JW's and all the other heretics.
"Scientists say that rickets is becoming ‚Äúdisturbingly common‚ÄĚ among British children."
Nature strikes back?? Or The Lord has cast off the 'nation' of Britain??
Psalm 10:1 Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble? 2 The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined. 3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth. 4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.

Will you preach the whole counsel of God John, or just the nice bits??
How about your sermon on election from Ephesians 1:4,5??? Or perhaps Romans chapter 9 11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth) =with..... 18 Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth. =or.... 11:21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. 22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God...."
God's work among all men John!!! He that hath ears.......
"...commemoration of a statute passed by America‚Äôs forefathers that declared freedom of religion as a natural right..."
Mr Obama; What the forefathers were referring to is the persecution which Jesus, the Son of God teaches in Mattthew chapter 5. NOT the freedom of heresy such as your religion of Liberalism and other man made cults.
Christ Jesus declares "10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake." Matthew 5.
