“The Institution is constitutionally Unionist. We bear allegiance to the rightful Sovereign of the United Kingdom, the Laws of the Realm, the Legislative Union and the succession to the Throne in the House of Windsor, it being Protestant.
Additionally we are pledged to support the magistrates and the civil authorities in the lawful execution of their duties.
Our Unionism is a consequence of our Protestantism. From Protestantism the United Kingdom has gained Democracy, Constitutional Monarchy, Freedom of Speech and Civil and Religious liberty.
These principles are enshrined in the Bill of Rights and the Act of Settlement. These we will maintain.
We are not linked to any political party but as a Protestant fraternity we support policies which will enhance the union and maintain our right to practice our religion freely.”
