|William of Orange - only a "crush" of country ?|
This article touches on the subject of protestant or "orange" monarchs. Under the leadership of the
British elite "orange" has become an identity inextricably linked to Northern Ireland but is this fair on those with orange Protestant family history that have no connection with Northern Ireland at all ?
British royalists and the wider peerage make much of their LOVE FOR THEIR COUNTRY and consider themselves guardians of "the old church" which presumably means their own catholicism evolving from the crusades. However their catholicism is different to that represented by the pope in Rome. This contention between different forms of the "old church" is the source of many family frustrations lower down the social scale - like us.

The Protestant Reformation sought clarity out of the confusion and conflict. It was the general aim to separate the word of God from the conveniences of power. The bible is the most important part of this objective and protestants are often reminded (by the aggressive elite) of their study of the Holy Quran in their hunt for documented truth.
For all practical purposes the pecking order of British history as defined by the elite seems to be Knights, Protestant "Orange" monarchs and then Oliver Cromwell last.
