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.

Did you know in the English language when you put one word in front of the other, the first word describes the second?

I'm sorry, did you say anything of value, thought not. A constitutional monarchy is not a monarchy. It has a different definition.

Yes, barefoot, you gloriously lost that argument.

Now accept it gracefully.

I bet your next post had no proof of god either.

Its funny how you theists wave about having "no proof" as some kind of badge of honour.

I guess that's why its a mental illness after all.

No. The UK is the constitutional monarchy. Northern Ireland is just occupied territory.

Uhhh- you fight your own battles.

If Northern Ireland doesn't like being occupied, then let them join Ireland or declare their own independence, like Scotland and Cornwall.

The united KING_dom is a monarchy. Who they will be united with in ten years is anyone's guess but for sure the spineless humps will still have a king.

Back in 1912, British liberal politicians had been committed (for decades) to granting Ireland her independence decided to have another go at granting home rule for Ireland. Of course, the protestant majority in the north did not want to live under the catholic south.

They came together to oppose the British who were about to grant autonomy and home rule to the whole of Ireland. In 1912 nearly half a million people signed the Ulster Covenant to “use all means necessary to defeat the conspiracy to introduce home rule for Ireland”. These people were armed and in January 1913 over 100,000 formed the UVF who were ready to fight the British in their attempts to impose home rule on them.

In March 1914, a British army based in Dublin was ordered to move north to Ulster resulting in what was pretty much an outright mutiny with a brigadier and scores of officers resigning (read about the Curragh Incident). The British sent a battle fleet to the Ulster coast with Churchill saying that they would fight to win any rebellion or civil war.

We’ll never know what would have happened next as the rebellion in the north was stopped dead in its tracks by the Great War.

The UVF reorganised into 36 Ulster divisions and they went off to die in their thousands in the fields of France. Their actions were so heroic and the scale of their casualties so horrific that the idea of betraying these people by imposing a united Ireland was out of the question.
