It's a little late.
Would've been nice 800 years ago when they could've done something to keep the Muslims from overrunning Anatolia and the whole Middle East.

Watch out. Politician “Christian unity” usually means an acceptance of something less that the “faith that was once delivered to the saints” (Jude 3). We come to unity by grace through faith by the operation of the spirit and gifts (Eph 4:3,7-13), not by board meetings and such.
