Orange Day: celebrate by Irish Protestants.

My favorite amateur sports team: Syracuse Orange lacrosse. They used to be called the ''Orange Men''.

Oh, it is the biggest mix-up that you have ever seen.
My father, he was Orange and me mother, she was green.

My father was an Ulster man, proud Protestant was he.
My mother was a Catholic girl, from county Cork was she.
They were married in two churches, lived happily enough,
Until the day that I was born and things got rather tough.

Baptized by Father Riley, I was rushed away by car,
To be made a little Orangeman, my father's shining star.
I was christened "David Anthony," but still, inspite of that,
To me father, I was William, while my mother called me Pat.

With Mother every Sunday, to Mass I'd proudly stroll.
Then after that, the Orange lodge would try to save my soul.
For both sides tried to claim me, but i was smart because
I'd play the flute or play the harp, depending where I was.

Now when I'd sing those rebel songs, much to me mother's joy,
Me father would jump up and say, "Look here would you me boy.
That's quite enough of that lot", he'd then toss me a coin
And he'd have me sing the Orange Flute or the Heros of The Boyne

One day me Ma's relations came round to visit me.
Just as my father's kinfolk were all sitting down to tea.
We tried to smooth things over, but they all began to fight.
And me, being strictly neutral, I bashed everyone in sight.

My parents never could agree about my type of school.
My learning was all done at home, that's why I'm such a fool.
They've both passed on, God rest 'em, but left me caught between
That awful color problem of the Orange and the Green.

well it's up to you of course.Why not end the feud and lighten up on the dogma.I'm sure God would be happy.Yer not doing God any favours dissing his Baprist(durka's gonna luv that typo), methodist, Lutheran folk.

You make a huge error . Even the previous pope, already forgot his name, was trying to to have you people lighten up on the issue.
Now that the oberfuher is in...we all got to suffer again.

Whatever are you on about??? The previous Pope did not renounce Catholicism. Here's an idea, don't offer comments unless you are certain of what the topic is.

King Jun ll's song.
I'm So Ronery
I'm so ronery
So ronery
So ronery and sadry arone

There's no one
Just me onry
Sitting on my rittle throne
I work very hard and make up great prans
But nobody ristens, no one understands
Seems that no one takes me serirousry

And so I'm ronery
A little ronery
Poor rittre me

There's nobody
I can rerate to
Feer rike a bird in a cage
It's kinda sihry
But not rearry
Because it's fihring my body with rage

I work rearry hard to stay nice and fit
But none of the women seem to give a ****
When I rure the world maybe they'rr notice me
But untir then I'rr just be ronery
Rittre ronery, poor rittre me
I'm so ronery
I'm so ronery

Where did i say he did....you just like typing this stuff as you go ?
The previous pope did try to make amends by saying not only catholics will enter heaven.
He tried to bring all religons tgether....

Lorneville was the Orange bastion in the '40s and '50s and they tried to celebrate just like in Ireland with King Billy leading his 'troops" through Saint John. They'd pick some prominent Church Of Englander for the honor of portraying King Billy to ride the white horse at the head of the parade & our lads would toss bottles, bricks, whatever at them. Most of the local cops were Catholic, so the Prots always got the worse of it. I think the last King was Vince Galbraith..sometimes in the '70s [an old friend from school]

Ah yes, the glorious 12th; celebrating King Billy's *** whuppin of the Dogans at the battle of the Boyne.

Ever since, the protestants can't forget they won, and the dogans can't stop trying to tell the rest of the world how to live.

The Orange Hall was right around the corner of me ol hometead so every 12th we were "treated" to fife and drum and farmers with their one white (yellowed with age) shirt, black suits, white socks, "carnival" type straw hats, carrying banners and bibles. Just doin the Lord's work eh.

"King Billy" rode at the head of the parade, and the rest of the folk walked in horsesh!t.......



If the horse was a male, you could hear several folks yelling : "Hey look at the prick on that horse"!!!.............................. "King Billy" looked neither left nor right, but paraded on like the good protestant he was.

The catholics were, by and large, well behaved, except for those who threw rocks and bottles.

After the parade was over, (so me dad told me), the lads would congregate at the local watering hole and that's when the party got rough. Orange and Green, dukin it out in the back alley. .Ah yes, the good old days of religious tolerance.

Haven't we come a long way...............

Our local Orange hall closed about 15 years ago. The property was sold and the proceeds put in a trust which doles out money each year to the local protestant churches for upkeep of cemeteries et al.

Just the ones with large Irish population, like Montreal and Saint John. When the churches lost most of their influence here,the parading and fighting just stopped. I am part Irish ,too but i won't mention which part.
