An orangeman is dedicated to the defence of the protestant religion and people, and to the maintenance of the protestant succession to the british u.k.
orange lodge members believe simply that christianity is based on the holy bible, nothing more and nothing less.
membership of the orange order is open to all protestants both male and female.
The bible has no popes, priests, mary worship, wafer worship transubstantiation/masses
, holy water, rosary beads, candles, purgatory etc. etc.
an orangeman rejects these practices because they are not warranted by holy scripture.
