Ahh, Ted, that would be the great leaders themselves, so it would…

Every single evangelical group of which I am aware which sees itself as the key to real unity ultimately defaults in practice to privileging Baptist independency.  That is, of course, absolutely fine for the Baptist independent; but if one is Presbyterian or paedobaptist by conviction, such ecumenism amounts to being told ‘Abandon much of what you hold dear and everything that makes you different to us and – hey presto! – we have unity.  Oh, and by the way, if you are not prepared to do that, remember whose fault it is that we are still hopelessly divided.’
