The Independent Online
Sir: David Trimble was reported ("Marching the ancient Orange road to nowhere", 9 July) to have said that the Orange Order is no more sectarian than other Protestant organisations such as the Guides.

I quote from the Guiders' Manual: "Guiding is open to every girl or young woman regardless of race, faith or personal circumstance - provided she is able to understand the Guide promise to the best of her ability and is willing to make it." Guiding is not an exclusively Christian - let alone Protestant - organisation.
