I NOTE that the Haass proposals for a code of conduct (all of which are included in the present code of conduct of the Parades Commission) are said to "criminalise Orange culture" (News, January 4).
Given that the eight-point proposed code of conduct reflects basic Christian conduct, could those who make such allegations kindly point out how an organisation claiming to be "Christ-centred, Bible-based, Church-grounded" can object to any of them?
