Was listening to the Head of the Orange Order - Mervyn Gibson - being interviewed the other week.
It was on the back of a speech he made in Glasgow about reaching out to other like-minded groups.
He got stumped when asked why an Orangeman could marry an atheist / Muslim / Hindu…but get expelled for marrying a Catholic.
He then got tied up in knots when a caller asked him if an Orangemen could attend a multi-faith Carol service with Catholics present. “It all depends…”, he started.
Even the presenter had to say it’s 2017 and the head of the Orange order couldn’t say if it was ok for one of their members to go a Christmas service.
Where Rufus lives, they have a policy of buying up ‘Protestant’ land to make sure it doesn’t fall to the papists.
And now a directive to stop using ‘RIP’ in case it sounds like papish superstition.
You couldn’t make it up.
