Your correspondent Richard Ferguson criticises a proposed forum between Churches and the Loyal Orders (January 8).

His stance is contrary to Gospel Truths.

Jesus Christ was most critical of those who looked down on, and presented themselves as better than others. Our Lords’ message to his followers is quite clearly to spread the Good News to everyone and to leave judgement to God. If Mr Ferguson is sincere in his beliefs he would avail of every opportunity to promote and defend them, especially among people who may have different viewpoints from his own. Instead, he chooses to ascend to a pedestal of self-righteousness, something which our Saviour strongly condemned.
