Orange Order Offended by Bigotry!

I had to laugh at this story featured on UTV(hat-tip to Belfast Gonzo at Slugger) regarding the decision by the Orange Order to cancel official talks with the President after her comments she made while marking the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

Hilariously,the OO say they made the decision due to Mary McAleese's "grossly offensive slur" against the Protestant people of the North.

Is this a joke or what?The Orange Order,that great symbol of bigotry and xenophobia,is offended by comments against a religious community?
People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.(a fitting idiom to use since throwing stones is a common feature of several OO parades!)
I'm glad they're not coming.They don't deserve the privilege to come to my city.Bunch of bigots.
