Blair Calls For Globalized Interfaith Respect & Effort

There are efforts, of course, in the ecumenical movement to sweep away all dogma, to sweep away all distinctions that divide and move the world toward one great tolerance toward religion, to pave the way for this gathering of one-world religion." -Dr John MacArthur
