I didn't even know he was a jaffa. Thought he was some new-agey atheist or non-denominational.

Uh I dont think anyone disputes that the Alliance Party is an overwhelmingly ethnic "Prod" Party- whether its half and half on the question of the border is another matter.

In all seriousness though Republicans like to forget that Orange scum often hated the RUC nearly as much as they did and that there were more than a few not just brave but actually noble men and women in it. During the actual Troubles the Alliance Party had a massive slab of the RUC vote for obvious reasons.

Just because David Ford has come out in favour of man on man bum action within marital wedlock doesn't mean he's a batty boy himself, and that is obviously what the church elders think. David Ford is an android, and it's impossible have anal relations with an android.

Or at least so I've been told ....

Who 'wins' in this debate along the 'Prod' angle? Secularism and/or many Protestants do, taking same sex marriage as okay for the sake of the argument.

The RCC opposes same sex marriage. Protestants reach different conclusions upon it. The Presbyterian Church itself has differing POVs on that. In the US, they permit it.

The PCA in real terms is far larger than the PCUSA especially if you add in the ARP and similiar groups in more or less Communion with them.

They're all arguing about abortion now on Nolan Live. I think there might be an episode of The Waltons on the True Movies channel though.

Of course so many RUC men and women appreciated the OO, DUP and UUP during the Drumcree mess. Those loving Orange petrol bombs really warmed their hearts.

REF,
as I suspected you have no evidence to back up your rubbish. I know plenty of former RUC officers and they are all Unionist.
You do the Math, I doubt they had 15,000 votes in total which is approx number of RUC officers at any time.

don't talk crap or I will pull you up on it.

The Alliance Party today are massively "pro-Union" and back than they were open about being Unionist.

I have no doubt that Orange men in the RUC supported their co-workers being burnt out of their homes by people inspired by the Orange Order and them attacked by Orange Order fans in general- however not everyone in the RUC was an OO person.

REF, YOU ARE Obsessed with the Orange Order (just because they tell the truth about the Bible), this was about you chatting crap and saying who the RUC voted for, when you haven't a clue.
