In America, atheists are still in the closet

Apr 11, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Spiked

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.

Some of the UK (England and Wales - we have been here before yet you still insist on claiming the entire UK – why?
England & Wales is 80 percent of the population, and if you ever get around to speaking English, UK has a state religion, it is the Church of England.

Here is how it works: Does the UK have a state religion... yes, hold up one finger... that is for the Church of England.

Does the USA have a state religion...NO.

Spooge breath: public forum. Don't post here thinking you can have a private conversation.
Check TOS.
I didn’t try to post anything private and I expected you to jump. However you butted in and then made specious claims.

I have no problem with that just so long as you realise (as most others do) that your claim was false

That would cut out 2/3s of your posts.
Pot kettle black.
There you go again, making up more BS because you have no facts to work with.

So I guess it must be 3/3 for you

So – 80% it is not 100%

The UK does not have a state religion, England and Wales do

Here how it works England and Wales that’s two fingers to you

Scotland and Northern Ireland don’t, that’s another two fingers to you

Yes, I do love the way you insist I have said something I haven't said.

We haven't had to follow any religion since 1776, since we kicked your azzes out.

Even the “elected” government guarantees the individuals freedom of and from religious expression
It is good you put "elected" in quotes because most of your government isn't elected.

Most are appointed.

And the head of state... inherited.

PS: If the UK enjoys "religious freedom", why do people have to sue to be able to wear a cross to work?

Yo Barefoot.

Relax man. It's Monday. Going to burn yourself out before the week is done.

Do you ever do gardening?

Curbs the excess anger. It is kind of like having Mr. Miagi as your mentor.

HAHAHQAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Oh my, I wonder how many heads rolled after running too liberal a tongue?

PS:
(quote)
British citizens are covered by the European Convention on Human Rights which states: "Everyone has the right to freedom of expression."

But it adds that governments can restrict free speech for, among other reasons, in the interests of national security, preserving public safety and for the prevention of disorder or crime.

The monarch can cancel the ONLY PEOPLE (the minority) of people you do get to vote for.

By tea time.

You care enough to roll around on the floor and stomp your feet for the last one hundred comments or so.

Poor little Nympho: dishes it out but WHINES LIKE A LITTLE BABY when it gets tossed back.
Oh what a hypocrite she is WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
I haven't whined a single time. That's one of the things that makes you so angry with me.

Nothing you say or do gets to me, barefooty. I know you keep hoping that your repeated attempts at insult will finally break me down and I'll whine, but it's not going to happen.

You have a good afternoon.

Poor lying NympHO: never use a quote when she can misquote.
Pay attention:
A) Active duty in combat zone do not pay *federal* income taxes. They are *EXCLUDED*.
B) Some members of the US military fall below the income threshold for paying federal income tax.
C) Some retired members of the US military fall below the income threshold for paying federal income tax.
NO matter how hard you stomp your feet.
I'm not the one stomping my feet and screaming 'I'm right! I'm right! I'm always right!' You are.

You're correct. Some military personnel do not pay taxes because they fall below the threshold.

Now, are you satisfied or are you going to keep copying this and pasting it for another couple of months?

Your first sentence doesn't make any sense. That's how it goes when you let things get to you so badly.

I hope both of you dishonored the Sabbath and were at work today. You wouldn't want to be considered hypocritical , would you?, you mentally disturbed, and hate-filled atheist.
You want to see hate?

Try googling "atheist hate groups" and you'll get 2,270 results.

Now do the same for "christian hate groups" and you'll get 39,600 results.

Clearly the myth of Christianity spawns far more hatred than atheism does.

So how do you plan to go about finding everybody who voted for Obama? I think that's personal information that you would have to steal to be able to slap everyone who voted for him. Of course, I doubt seriously that you are opposed to committing a crime.
