In America, atheists are still in the closet

So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

Like when I was screaming "I am right" when I said the Queen alone had the power to dissolve the UK Parliament and you deftly joined with SuperFag in saying that I was wrong...
Tell me, Chubby: who has the power to dissolve the UK Parliament?
We can work our way down to the next question (it's a two parter): Who is the head of the Church of England and who appoints the members to the House of Lords?
No one has argued with you on these points. Your stale, outdated, OCD, pompous postings are dull and boring to the extreme.

<quoted text>Correct again.
The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled all laws requiring religious tests for any political office unconstitutional.

Over here in the USA, the SCOTUS out ranks individual state legislatures.

That is why you cannot find any case of any politician from holding office because of his/her beliefs (or lack there of).

This would differ from the UK law requiring collective Christian worship in state funded schools because
(A) UK has no constitution
(B) UK has no Supreme Court
(C) the UK is not a secular country
(D) the head of state is the head of the state religion
(E) the law was modified in 2010 and still valid right now

They have, NympHO.

Maybe you need to keep track of what people say to you and less what people say to me, especially when you or your aliases are not here.

Don't dish it out if you can't take it, HOney.

I think it's amusing you fling insults but whine so when it is returned.

OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Oh how will I survive this?

Yet you continue to care enough to respond or like you did in the fourth grade, respond in the third person.

I shall try, SweetCheeks, to get through the day, to put one foot in front of the other, to trudge on... nevertheless...

I keep track just fine. Their argument is not about the what the laws say, it is how they are implemented or not implemented. You want to argue, so you do.

Well, Booby: we know you don't speak English and we know you cannot refute what I say, it is why you spend your time with straw men.
If you think the US is a third world country, get the hell out.
No translation needed.
Slowly now ... Obama is set on making this (USA) a Third World country. I did not say it is currently a Third World country.

I guess you forgot that Bin Ladin is dead.
Bin Laden- the guy Bush let slip through his fingers in Tora Bora - and a long list of other Al Qaeda leaders.
The Bush War is Iraq is over, BTW: it was in all the papers.
The five years of bloodshed war Bush started to get a leg up in the 2004 election. No more bloodshed in Iraq.
Bin Laden was doomed. If not terminated under this Administration, it would have been the next or even the next ...

Maybe Obama's apologies, bowing, gesticulating, averted glances, ring kissing and curtsies threw the Muslims off and he thus contributed ... but, I don't know. Sounds kind of far fetched.

Wow. Bush started a war and squandered American lives "to get a leg up in the 2004 election" ... gosh ... your evidence must be compelling. Surely he's under arrest! Oh, wait!! No, pretty sure he's drawing his guvmint pension and ain't got a care in the world.

Oh, BTW ... check the news ... seems September was the "bloodiest month in 2 years" in peaceful Iraq ... not sure I'd plan your vacation there.

Killed by Obama administration along with a long list of other Al Qaeda leaders due to the dozens of drone kills in Yemen, Afghanistan, and and Pakistan.

Yet you continue to insist Obama has done nothing... compared to Bush who let Bin Laden escape and started the war in Iraq that would kill 4488 Americans and 125,000 Iraqis.

And did nothing to stop terrorist which he pretended to be the cause of the war.

The war that we are still paying for, you do remember the Bush recession?

No matter how hard you stomp your feet, heads of state bow to each other. Bush bowed and even kissed some of them. Reagan bowed. Eisenhower bowed. Nixon bowed.

And Romney has already gotten to his knees when he graveled before Netanhaha... because the US tax payers haven't given the Israelis enough.

Your opinion is worth nothing to me as I have no respect for you. But you keep it up. It shows what you're made of.
That's just it.

You have to respect someone before you value their opinion and the rantings of a deranged obsessive like barefoot, engender no respect whatsoever.

Last time I looked he was averaging approximately 76 posts a day. No doubt he'll be trying to push that average up to 80.

Not really...Sterilization, contraceptive use and abortion, PLANNED PARENTHOOD, will keep the U.S. from going into savage, third world, breeding mode where women with capacious vaginal dimensions and zero education plus low IQs squirt out semen demons, miserable crotch droppings, into the streets...See third world CATHOLIC countries...Obama is absolutely right in the support of Planned Parenthood but he does not go far enough in encouraging a culture of contraception, sterilization and abortion....and that's where my LIBERTARIAN support ends. Until breeding practices are called into question, all else is white noise. Glory!
