Order preaches tolerance but doesn't show it

The Orange Order is forever harping on about the right to walk the public highway. That right is there to ensure that everyone can go about their daily business unimpeded without fear to life or limb, not to facilitate or force one culture upon another.

However the Orange Order, with thousands of marches every year, seem to regard this right as their own and, in the rush to exercise it, would trample the rights of all others. They use the word tolerance a lot but exercise it little.

These events need to be held where they will be welcomed or taken to a suitable venue and removed from the streets. The financial savings would benefit all.
