Resolutions 2016.



Resolution 1 - LOYALTY


We the members of the Independent Loyal Orange Institution assembled on the 326th anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne, return thanks to Almighty God for his preservation and deliverance in times past and for those who have defended our civil and religious liberties.  Once again our institution declares our steadfast loyalty to the British Throne and Constitution and re-affirms our continued resolve to support and defend the Protestant religion, the Laws of the Realm, the legislative Union and the succession to the Throne in the House of Windsor, it being Protestant.


 We congratulate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 2nd on recently celebrating her 90th birthday and wish her health, happiness and many more years to reign over us.


Resolution 2. Somme.


 In this year we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the battle of the Somme when many young men of all faiths and none from this Island paid the supreme sacrifice so we could enjoy the freedom we now hold so dear. We must never forget the sacrifice  these men made in defence of our country.




We reiterate our  continued belief in the divine authority and perpetual obligation of the Christian Sabbath. We reject Sabbath desecration at all levels of society and call upon the Protestant people to remember their heritage and the God of their fathers by honouring the Lord’s Day.


RESOLUTION 4 – Social issues


We, the members of the Independent Loyal Orange institution remain deeply concerned with the erosion of the institution of marriage as appointed by God and call upon the legislative assembly at Stormont to continue to ensure the status Quo remains.

We also remain totally opposed to any dilution of the laws concerning abortion.

RESOLUTION 5 – Constitution

The Independent Loyal Orange Institution has been constitutionally unionist and democratic in its structures and beliefs.  We return thanks to Almighty God for the principles of Orangeism and place on record our firm determination to continue the noble work begun by the pioneers of the Independent Loyal Orange Institution in 1903. While we wish to maintain our distinctiveness and our witness, we desire to continue the development of fraternal bonds of friendship within the Orange family. We believe that unity within the Orange family helps to defend and promote the Protestant faith, the Union with Great Britain, and our right to celebrate our rich heritage and culture. Our motto as ever is,






No Surrender.



God save Our Queen
