Rangers FC should be proud of our Protestant 'leanings'!


Recommended Posts

I think the club is responsible for this nonsense that we shouldn't LINK Rangers with Protestantism! It's got to the point were no-one at Rangers FC will even mention the word Protestant!!!

We should be rejoicing our links with Protestanism, and rejoicing our links with the Orange Walks - NO NEED TO BE ASHAMED OF EITHER!!! :Edwinb2:

My take on it is that Rangers weren't formed as a Protestant club - our leanings were a reaction to the Tarriers across the City, people said "if they're proud to be Tims, then why shouldn't we be proud of our religion, and why shouldn't WE have a team..."!

We should rejoice in our Protestant Leanings - but we aren't exclusively a Proddie team, there's plenty of the Asian and Jewish Faiths that follow Rangers (probably because of our 'supposed' link to the Tory Party...)

Everyone is welcome at our great club - WE AREN'T SECTARIAN!!! :pipegreen:

Why should we be proud to have links to any religion?

Nothing wrong with being Protestant, Catholic, Jewish or any other religion but why bring it to the football?

When I lived down south one of the first questions I would be asked is which team do I follow, I say Rangers and normally I get a response of being a Protestant. Being non-religious I honestly hate having this casted over myself as I'm a footie fan.

We should be proud because of one simple fact - IT'S THE TRUTH!!

I'm an Atheist but still proud of my Protestant upbringing!

I don't like having to caste myself either - but i'm not ashamed of it ACTUALLY PROUD TO HOLD MY HAND UP AND SAY "PROTESTANT"!! :cool:

HaHaHaHa you've made me laugh, cheers man

Why call yourself a Protestant when your an Atheist?

Whats the truth?

I'm a Stubborn Atheist!

I say "Protestant" because i'm not ashamed of our links - unlike the folk in control of Rangers!!! I went to a Protestant School so I'M A PROTESTANT and whether or not i'm Atheist holds no meaning to most folk... They'll say "What Religion are you.." and i can say "I'm an Atheist.." and they'll say "Aye, but what kinda school did you go to Protestant or Catholic..."

I'm not gonna deny my upbringing - just to appease the PC world!!!! :pipegreen:

When i fill in a questionairre i input 'Protestant' and i'm happy to do that! :cool: !!

Spot on - and I've always liked the colour Orange and Dutch football but get tarred with the same brush when I want to show this by wearing a dutch shirt - really annoys me

Horse is correct, we have a protestant history, dont deny it its a fact and thats what he is saying, we are not exclusive but it is our history and I for one am proud of it.

As for picking holes in his case, I do that on the debate forum when there are holes to pick, but not on this one, he said he was brought up a protestant and proud of his upbringing, but he now is an atheist.

To me that says he's proud of his upbringing and family, but made a life choice not to follow the ways of his parents, he wasnt advocating anythingelse

So Horse...

You are advocating a belief system for our club which you yourself have chosen to reject ?

Can't speak for Horsey D'Art, but a while back I had a wee thing going with a lady who told me she's an 'ethnic Hindu' - a weegie though, and when I pressed her she told me she loves being part of that Community, that it's an essential part of her character and she enjoys the get togethers and the clothes (which I think look great :Animation44-dont over use: ).

Made me think that although I've left the 'God' thing behind, I'm probably an 'ethnic Presbyterian'.

And I'm very comfortable with Rangers' Protestant heritage, but I don't think I really need to tell you that.

As for Horse, keep on fishing ;)
