In principle I have little to no problem with this, but….There is always a “but” with fraternizing with the born again crowd. I don’t see us playing for the same team, just driving parallel roads that in the end arrive at different destinations.
And in their view ultimately we Jews are not going to be welcome into their idea of olam ha-bah unless we renounce our Judaism. To me it is a slippery slope we are dancing upon and hard not to look at them through squinty eyes.
