Of course they are. Because believers are a danger to them. Believers do unspeakable things to those who don't think like them. Its bad enough that some humans are unkind to others but its worse when those humans use dark age mythology to justify it. Hopefully one day religion will cease in this world and people will operate on logic. That alone will change the world for the better.
Sad that you feel that way, religious charities feed, clothe, and provide shelter for more people around the world than any other source. People of Faith are far from perfect, but most try to help others.

I celebrate 4th July with my American friend that lives here. Any excuse. Do you get a good November 5th too? He does.

I guess you don't post from the UK either.
RETARD, he's saying that Ireland is west of Wales, not England you dipshit, every day you wake up, and every day you are a British colony, a British creation, one of many, and not particularly important, in 1776 Jamaica was more important to Britain than usa, you were merely a small colony of English farmers, you meant to London about as much as Kansas means to Washington, hurt much

Wow, your stupidity has no bounds, Britain is also an island, made up of England, Scotland, Wales and northern Ireland,
No, Packy.

Britain is an island, and England, Scotland, and Wales are part of that isle of Britain.

Northern IRELAND, Packy... is part of the island of IRELAND.

Do you need a map, Packy?

When you immigrated to England and swore allegiance to the Queen- didn't they require you take some kind of test?

Poor Packy...

People who live on the island of Ireland are IRISH.

All of them. Even those people- subjects of the Queen- who live in Northern Ireland are IRISH.

Life would be easier if you learned to say you were WRONG.

Like when you insisted the British captured the U505 long after I posted proof that you could have just looked and and said that you were wrong instead... stomped your feet for weeks.

Let me know when you find a map.

Actually, no, I understand you are still learning English but I go by what he said, not by what he meant.

Let me know when you have a map.

PS: Ireland is, indeed, west of England. If you want to bet, we can bet who ever is wrong won't post in this thread again but then as we know you won't admit to the sun rising in the east when you've been proved wrong...

... as I have proved you wrong so many times here...

We kicked the English's azzes.

And we were 13th colonies, and had a population of 2.5 million, and the colonists were paying the freight for Georgie's war.

Why they went to war to try to keep us.

Putting aside they hired Germans to do most of their fighting for them... just as they had Americans do their fighting in WWI and WWII.

You crawl further and further out on the limb, Packy.

Let me ask you this, Packy:

Are you thinking what you said (above) makes sense? Or witty?

We kicked our own arses.
You don't do very well on your own. You need help.
You just about managed Grenada.
You got your arses kicked by SE Asians on bicycles.
Oh dear.

So celebrating the fourth of July isn't a big hit in England I hear.

Not to worry though , we proved everything is better without your approval consent or even recognition. I can imagine the little bit of help you blue bloods are when the USA summons you to the cause.
Can you imagine how being on the team and a part of the greatest nation on Earth and the pride you English can have taking part in Americas space exploration programs , as well as our leadership in the free world?

We are second to none , and never forget it.
America is the light of the free world.

Actually I was saved by some English guys on the 4th once.

My boat broke down and I drifted into some English peoples yard.

They gave me a ride to my truck :).

They were also very nice people If it weren't for the English , I still be paddling around on the lake :) heheheh

He'll probably say that because Northern Ireland is part both of the UK and part of Ireland.
And since you did not specify either than either is correct.
Absolutely correct.
And since we are talking about people being banned for blood, Northern Ireland is specifically appropriate.
Good grief, you're stupid as well as obnoxious.

You brought up "Ireland", inappropriately, and now you're tapdancing - exactly as I predicted.

You know this.

So is the Isle of Man, and island just West of Wales.

Why do you insist on defending the indefensible?

HEY DICKWAD: Northern Ireland is part of Ireland, the people there are indeed Irish, and maybe because you are bent over the wrong way but Ireland is STILL WEST of England.

It's in ALL the maps.
