"RIP" frowned on by the Orange Order!

... How unusual in NI, I hear you exclaim! Please read the article linked and quoted below.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jul/29/orange-order-protestants-told-not-to-use-rip-as-it-is-catholic-superstition
The Orange Order has advised its members and all those who consider themselves Protestant to stop using the phrase RIP to offer sympathy after a person has died because it is un-Protestant, un-biblical and a superstition connected to Catholicism.

...
“From a Protestant point of view, we believe that ... when death comes a person either goes to be with Christ for all eternity, or into hell ... that’s what we believe the gospel to be. In this 500th year of the reformation I think [Martin] Luther, when the scales fell off his eyes, I think he realised it was all by faith alone, in Christ alone, that ... when death comes that decision [on whether you go to heaven or hell] has been made and no decisions are made after death,” said Thompson.
...

Never has the pot has called the kettle black in such a bizarre way!
True, no decisions get made after death, but going either to heaven or hell immediately after death is apparently accepted as "fact"!
May The Voice be with you!

I thought the Orange Order referred to the Trump administration. :tehe:
