Hmmmm I always thought the orange ribbon on St. Patricks day was a Scottish thing. I worked with a Scottish women and she always wore an orange ribbon.
The orange order is big in Scotland and other countries. This is a pretty neutral write up on them. Obviously, a pro-orange site insists they are all innocent and nothing is their fault, while pro-IRA sites call them satan incarnate. The simple truth is that they are the other half of the IRA equation. They are the counter-band of political extremists who kill Catholics and gloat about it later, just as some IRA factions kill protestants and gloat about it later. You can be protestant without being orange. You can be Irish without being orange. Choosing orange would be similar to someone here choosing to support a pro-Confederacy group.
