Thread: Orange Grand Master steps down

  1. #1

    Default Orange Grand Master steps down

    BBC News - Robert Saulters steps down as head of Orange Order

    Hopefully the next chap is a bit more stable if the OO is to survive in the 21st century.

    Good to see Mr Saulters taking time to enjoy his life now.

    Thankfully he survived that sectarian IRA murder attempt in the 90s and he's still here to enjoy it.

    Hopefully his replacement is a bit more PR savvy though...

    Ah, he accused Blair of disloyalty because he married a Catholic. It's probably not bigotry to the likes of you, but to most people it is.

    Hopefully Brother Saulters enjoys a peaceful retirement away from the public eye. Presided over a tough era for the Order.

    The title is misleading.

    I thought he stepped down off his high horse, i see now he just retired ah well.
    It'll give the brethern a chance to vote in an even more backward looking grand wizard.

    Not really bigotry though is it?

    He's just giving his opinion that Mr Blair should have remained within the protestant faith that he was born into. A faith Mr Saulters obviously believes strongly in.

    Any priest would have similar views on someone who moved from the catholic church to Presbyterianism.

    It wasn't about his move it was about his marriage, doh!

    Of course separating children for 16 years during their upbringing because of religion isn't backward-looking at all.....

    You should judge your own community leaders by the same standards you judge Mr Saulters.
