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.

Second more than 50% of US schoolchildren are required by state law to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, rabbiting on that they are part
The pledge has the words "under God" in it.

So?

Tell me: out of the tens of millions of children who recite the pledge, how many have been arrested in the history of time for not reciting it?

Ah... now I guess after posting the law fifty times you acknowledge that the law exists.

As I pointed out 49 times, it matters not that SOME schools do not obey the law, just as it does not matter that most people exceed the speed law when I say the law exists.

In comparing the religious influence of the church, the FACT that your STATE church has enough influence on legislators and of course the head of state being the head of the state religion approving the law goes to the comparison to the US constitution which BANS such influence.

US... having a constitution...

Maybe you can start by revoking the law that requires religious worship in tax-funded schools?
Something which would be banned over here in the USA.
But of course: the majority of SUBJECTS in the United KING_dom are Christian, still, I guess you read into the numbers what you want to read.
PS: I see followers of Jedi outnumber Atheists 6 to 1, with the atheists coming in at a fraction of one percent.
No need, the law is more or less defunct anyway

Why do you lie? Pledge of allegiance ring any bells?

Yes and down 18%, isnít life great.

And 25% of the population are now non religious.

Yes so, what happens if you donít happen to believe in any god does that mean you have to lie to be American?

Tell me how many British children have been arrested for not attending ďcompulsoryĒ worship?

You want comparison then compare apples and apples

I imagine the same way you managed to get through your day praying to your lord Satan help guide you with what decisions you make.

WTF is wrong with you, I have always acknowledged it exists, I have also acknowledged that it is not implemented but hey if you want to argue about what I said and what I didnít say thatís just fine. Go got it

Influence? Yehhh, rightÖ With 760 lords and almost 650 in the commons (thatís just over 1400 members) I donít think 25 lords spiritual will have too much influence, now be honest, do you?

And again you show your ignorance of the British constitution, the monarch is above politics and has no influence on political decisions

The sun rises in the east. School children in the US recite the ledge of allegiance.

I can tell you from personal experience, when 30 children bleat "under God" in the morning, the sky does open up and a light fall down from the heavens.

The same sky opens, the same light falls whether it's children or sheep. Only the ego of Godbot's makes it into a special show, put on by the Creator of the Universe for your personal enjoyment. What an ego!

I'm not the one who is insisting the sun doesn't rise in the east.

I'm the one who said the United KING_dom is a monarchy, and you (et al.) are the ones insisting otherwise.

You want to pretend that uttering the words "under God" is some kind of Christian patronage in the USA but you live in a country that has a LAW requiring Christian worship in 'public' schools -actual PRAYER- and a country that has a STATE religion and a country whose head of state is the head of that state religion.

It's hard to take you seriously, Skanque.

Prime Minister Macmillan...
Taking a break from responding only to your first of many convoluted posts to address another failure:

"The Queen appointed Macmillan Prime Minister after taking advice from Winston Churchill and Robert Gascoyne-Cecil, 5th Marquess of Salisbury, who had asked the Cabinet individually for their opinions, all but two or three of them opting for Macmillan."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_Macmillan...

In other words, the Tory elite majority decided on Macmillan. The Queen, as per usual, rubber stamped it.

Aww but itís fun to make him rant his BS about things he is clueless about. However I am getting a little tired of showing him facts only for him to repeatedly effectively reply thatís not the answer he wanted because it does not agree with his wet dreams and hatred
The easiest way to deal with him is to respond only to his first post. Barefoot's tactic is to substitute quality with quantity so tries his upmost to overwhelm people with waves of posts that do not really differ much at all.

GOSH!

Let's try to remember which one of us who was saying that the monarch APPOINTED the prime minister!!!!

Let me check...

Oh, that was me!

Wait, wait, that is that tricky definition of appointed that you (et al.) insisted was the "technically correct" meaning of the word...

And then you (et al.) INSISTED that the prime minister was ELECTED by the Parliament.

(putting aside, the PM is "elected" by part of the (sometimes) majority party of the hOUSE OF cOMMONS.

GOSH! there I go again... being..."factually" correct...
