There has long been a name for Catholics who graze on the parts of the Church’s theology they like, whilst disavowing the bits they don’t. Judging by the reactions I was privy to after Mass on Sunday, the bits many don’t like are getting larger with each Sunday that passes… But one reader draws my attention to this statement from the Orange Order and its protest at the visit of the Pope to Britain. Which I guess poses a question for those members of the main political parties (not least the UUP/Conservative alliance) who belong to the Orange as to whether or not they sign up to the sentiments of the protest or not?
