    I remember in past years units refused to give an eyes right when passing reviewing stands on Paddys day parades if it was known that a SF councillor or TD would be on the reviewing stand. However the honour is rendered to the office rather than the person
    used to be the tradition locally where the Mayor was invited to the blessing of the shamrock on the bks square on Paddys day until the wrong guy got the job..plain and simple army cancelled the ceremony and it never took place since.

    On the parade that after noon the car crews did not render honours to the reviewing stand and the army did not have an officer on the stand either.

    It was a slur on the office but no greater a slur that the cnut holding the office had placed on it by taking office.

    Remember the DFRs probably orginally date from the 1920s, it requires a Ministerial decision to change them and the Church was held in higher regard at the time.

    If you started, fair enough.

    If you and those like you have been doing it for 2000 years and are still held in high regard by the state, and other nations.. thats a whole other thing completely.

    The same honours are rendered to all religious, regardless of faith or creed.

    Whats justified in being a member of the church to receive honours? This kind of church/state bullshit needs to be got rid of.

    Its weird, If I started going round on my own talking to someone you cant see and I say I can feel their love, and that they love us all, I'd be regarded as a mad man.
    But if I did it with 100 or more, no, its a religion

    Regardless of the circumstances, it is very different to decide that protocol now excludes certain members of the community it once included in ceremonial entitlements.
    Unless that person is GUILTY of a crime within the state, there is no justification for withdrawing the rendering of honours.

    I'd agree but the DFR would have been written in a different time.

    They are elected by the people, clergy on the other hand are not.

    Im in agreement with steyrfan but even if the church was in good standing, they should not get any sort of goh or ceremonial duty done by the df for them
