AS an Orangeman and a member of the Royal Black Institution. I would like to respond to the attack by the Protestant church leaders on the loyal orders.
I am disgusted with the Protestant church leaders once again condemning the loyal orders, our marching bands and our Protestant culture.
When was the last time our church leaders stood up and took their stand for our Protestant and reformed faith?
They would rather stand shoulder to shoulder with the church of Rome and the ecumenical movement, which is destroying Protestantism and our culture.
I would ask both Church of Ireland Primate Alan Harper and Presbyterian Moderator Roy Patton, and the rest of the ecumenical clergy, when was the last time we heard the Protestant church leaders condemn the republican and nationalist community after attacks on Orange halls, churches and parades, as well as intimidation of Protestants, which forced many from their homes?
Where are the so-called liberal church leaders?
When was the last time they stood up for Protestantism and for the Orange and Black institutions?
For many years when the Protestant, Unionist and Orange families were being murdered and slaughtered by the IRA, the Protestant churches were silent.
The Protestant people need to open their eyes and see that the ecumenical movement is destroying and diluting what Protestantism stands for.
What we need in Ulster is for the people to remove these ecumenical and liberal ministers within some of our churches.
