I must agree with Barry and Keven, and not just because in reverce it becomes, Keven Barry... Giving Conrad grief is only going to increase his paranoia, the root of the Orange lad's usrrender of their humanity. As I believe I have told people here in the past, early in the seace fire, I was at WBAI passifica Raidio's studio in NYC, waiting to be interviewed about Roma (gypsies). By chance there was a spokesperson for the Orange Lodges in the studio, there to debate over the phone and be interviewed. The poor man looked absoultly misserable, as everyone in the studio was ignoring him, and he knew from the posters on the wall, he was not in a sympathetic place. In the interest of the sease fire and peace talks, I brought the fellow a cup of tea, and commented that we had arrainged the rain that morning, to make him feal at home. We had a great wee talk, and I made it clear I was a life long republican and a friend of Burnadette Devlin McAlisky. He said things to me that I did not agree with, and I felt showed, at least an unconcious prejudice and I am sure I said things that made him uncomfortable. However, the polite exchange of ideas made it possible to shake hands and share some tea. Insulting each other, snearing etc (or sending threating or distructive attachments on email) would have done nothing for progress in Ireland. So to those who say this should not be talked about, I can only ask how can you have progress through silence, and for those who say spam Conrad, I say, how can you have progress through harassment. Let's keep it intelligent folks, and Conrad, in responce, why don't you stop the sloganisms and really think if you wish to support Protestant domination. Is it really a Christian thing to do? Last I looked, Protestantism was a Christian religion, eh? Remember, it is not do unto others what they do, but what you would HAVE them do unto you.
Be nice folks

Dear I guess:
You are right, and as I forgive people their ignorence, I also appologise for indulging my anger. The fact is I have lost friends to Orange terror. I remind those who say both sides are the same of the present threat to kill a Catholic a day until the parades take place. As wrong as killing in war may be, indescriminate killing is worse, weither it is a free fire zone in Viet Nam, or kill a Catholic a day. The fact is the IS a diffrence betwen the loyalist movememnt and Republicanism. And I know the difference having spent time in Belfast in BOTH communities. I know I could talk freely, as an Anglo Irishman, and a protestant about things that would have gotten me killed on the Shankill. Anyone who says the two sides are the same should learn about the Rumpus Room and Campbell and the Shankill Butchers. Yes Forgive, but it is a dangerous thing to forget. To forget what was struggled for, allows injustice and discrimination to continue.
We in the US clean up our history through our foolish movies to the point of fostering ignorence. For those who believe Mississippi Burning and Patriot, it is easy to point a wagging finger at Irish Republicans. Forget TV and the movies, read and go and see for your self. We are such a wealthy nation, use some of the money to travel and get educated. But don't stay at the hilton...

I don't like what the Orange Order stands for - I'm an Irish Republican and a Catholic- but people should of course be allowed to march about whatever they want - but two things make the Orange marches different.
First of all they are not marches or demonstrations, they are parades. They are not about changing the government or its policies. They are about reminding the subjugated Catholic minority that the forces of Unionist Protestantism trounced them once and that if they get uppity again they'll trounce them again. They are inflammatory and deliberately provocative.
Secondly, I can think of no other demonstration or march where the army or police barricade peaceful, law-abiding people in their own homes so that a parade can go past. I can think of no other situation where any counter-demonstration is completely forbidden.
Can anyone imagine the Metropolitan Police in London barricading black people in their homes so that the British Nation Party or the Ku Klux Klan could march through Brixton? I thought not.
These ignorant, intolerant arsehole bigots should be told to parade through their own areas and stop infringing on the legitmate civil liberties of innocent and peaceful communities.

Hey guys and gals

I have posted to this thread a couple of times in a not to complimentary way to the Orange brigade. Terry in his post above is precisley correct. Both sides are too boneheaded. But it is because of people like the originator of this thread.

Barrygeo is basically the voice of the majority of the Irish people, they want peace and quiet also. They do not want to rehash the hurts over again. Years ago I stopped supporting the IRA for the actions they took. Yes I want peace for Eire and one country ruled by themselves.

If we keep posting to this thread we will just keep up the hurt and anger that builds and further the cause of the originator. I think we should just let this die and go with the wind. Everyone say a Prayer in their minds in whichever way they worship for Peace not only in Ireland, but for the world.

Folks, for the record. I am probably one of the few posters here actually living in Ireland. I am anti-violence and voted for the PEace Agreement.

Conrad's original post was a direct copy/paste from the web site of the Portadown District, Loyal Orange Lodge Number One. This specific group are very anti-peace agreement and have close links with loyalist paramilitaries. They are anti-peace agreement without ever offering an alternative.

Conrad is just as misguided as those who support republican violence in IReland. 95% of people in Ireland and 75% of people in Northern Ireland voted for peace. We want a new future not an annual rehash of a painful history. The likes of Conrad who enjoys stoking up outdated religous bigotry must be challenged.

The reason the Pope supported William of Orange was because James II was supported by France, and the Pope, still not forgetting then Avignon exile of the past and the political issues of the present, vehemently did not support France, thus siding with her enemies, which of course was Bad Billy. Yet another politically motivated agenda by a Church official back in the days when the Church was ruled by power-hungries and political zealots instead of religious men. It has brought shame upon my religion and I don't like it one bit. I hate politics.

With that sort of talk you'll be thrown out of the Orange Order!

Let's get one thing straight here. We should not think of the Orange Order as a solely Protestant organisation. It is an anti-Catholic organisation.

If they want to march in support of a Dutch mercenary why didn't they march in Rome last weekend at the gay rally. (William of Orange was famously gay)

"The RUC reported a number of confrontations with protesters. Police and drivers were stoned in the Oldpark and Shore Road areas of Belfast as well as in Newtownabbey.

Barricades were set alight on many of the blocked roads around the north and east of the city and there were reports of protests and road-blocks in Lisburn, Cooks town, Dungannon, Carrickfergus and Derry.

Scorch damage was caused to the doors of a Catholic church in Carnmoney, on the northern outskirts of Belfast, after a petrolbomb attack.

In Larne, Co Antrim, police recovered two fireworks wrapped with nails and an assortment of hand weapons and UDA paraphernalia."

Suspect device destroyed near Parade Commissioner's home Last updated: 16:50

RUC experts have destroyed a suspect object found today near the home of a prominent member of Northern Ireland's independent parades commission.

Army disposal officers carried out a controlled explosion on the object which was found in Greyabbey, 15 miles (25 kilometres) east of Belfast, near the residence of Mr Billy Martin who sits on the body that rules on Northern Ireland's controversial parades.

The RUC said later that the bomb alert was a hoax.

The parades commission has come under fire from Orangemen for ruling that Orange Order parades be re-routed away from nationalist districts.

I also do not usually respond to threads like these, but I like Andy Green was also caught in a bombing in coventry in 1974 and another in London a year later (once is bad enough twice is bloody careless!). I feel sorry for the orange order because they obviously have missed the plot -Don't they get it? We are moving away from the union with devolution, unionism has a limited shelf life -they are most intensely loyal to a Crown that will not exist in ten years time and thank God for it. Frankly unionism is like shifting deckchairs on the titanic -where will they be in a federal Europe ?? Why people can't realise that being orange or green doesn,tchange your life-you get up go to work and watch the same crap on TV wherever you are in the world ....and then you die.

These are both forms of unwanted message delivery which perform no good other than give perverse thumb-nosing pleasure to the messengers at the expense of the recipients.

Conrad Has it not dawned on the Orange brethern that the scenes in Drumcree can only reflect badly on themselves. Drumcree could be resolved if the brethern would enter negotioations with the lcal community. This method has successfully resolved most traditional routes. The reason given for not enterring negotiations is because Brendain O'Cionnaith is a former convicted terrorist yet the Brethern freely use Johnny Adair also a convicted terrorist to organise protests. How can Loyalists be considered sincere when they refuse to consider reform of the RUC on one day and throw petrol bombs at them the next. Only by building links at local community level will resolve the Drumcree situation. The inflammatory rhetoric of the likes of you and those who post against you can only make things worse. For those of you who dont live in Northern Ireland aggravation of this situation may cause deaths. Think first!!!!

As someome who narrowly missed being blown up by the IRA, (three minutes later into the pub in birmingham in 1974) I find the bigotted behaviour of the Irish difficult to empathise with. But I believe in free speech etc and if thats the way they want to be - so be it. The Orange men are so fixed in their opinions, we can only hope the next generation are better educated. But don't hold your breath. Usually when I see threads like this I avoid them. I find it annoying hearing all those who sympathise with the IRA. How outraged were you when that Office building in Oklahoma was blown up over a year ago, or when some idiot shoots up a school - its the same for ordinary people all over england and Ireland - there is no political justification and its a bloody shame that most of the money for the ammunition and training comes from the good old US of A
I'm ranting, I know, no apologies though.

I should have thought that Conrad would be the first to spring to my defense for exercicing the U.S. constitutional right of free speech!!which includes the right to send mail to anyone who voluntarily provides their address on-line. And I should also think that the choice not to reveal a "true identity" as also a right supported on this forum, or only members would be permitted to post: should you wish that to be the case, Max can easily do it- otherwise, please dont continue to whinge about it! For that matter, how, exactly, do we KNOW that is Conrad's "true identity", or anyone elses for that matter? Have background checks been done? As far as cowardice is concerned, Conrad's encouragement of mayhem from across the Atlantic seems a bit more craven then him being called, and rightfully so, a fuckwit.

Haven't had time to read all of this, but I would just like to put my twopennorth in. I am a catholic (of sorts) and I have no objection to Orange marches. And nobody is asking them to stop marching - just to stop marching in predominantly Catholic areas. OK, so some routes are traditional, but it wouldn't hurt to change them a bit if it means a peaceful march. When the Orange order keep demanding the right to walk down particular streets it just shows everyone that the real reason for the parades is not tradition, but bigotry and intimidation.

I would love for the Orange order to prove me wrong and change their routes.
