John Gummer goes too far

And while I am considering theological interventions into society, what are we to make of Lord Deben (John Gummer) and his assertion that UKIP supporters cannot be Christians? (http://archbishop-cranmer.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/lord-deben-you-cant-be-christian-and.html ).

I have no inclination to support UKIP.

But John Gummer goes too far.

Read the Scriptures Mr Gummer (I cannot take seriously your ennoblement):  "Judge not that ye be not judged, for as ye judge so shall ye be judged".

You cannot look into souls Mr Gummer, and you are not a priest in the line of Melchizedek.

It is not for you to judge whether others are Christians.
