Cool feel free to worship all you wish, but Protestantism was not the state religion of England, the C.of E is based on the Revelation of Christ, Scripture and Tradition and was not until 1994. Considering you rely on you history for your obnoxious BS you are woefully lacking in historical understanding

Everyone here knows you are the one with experience with oral sex, Skanque.
You know: real life tonsil massages.
Guys aren't really that familiar with the fact they drip.
I bet if you did more of that and less insisting that you were always right, you hen-pecked husband wouldn't have run off with the other woman.
Wipe your chin, hon.
Nope drippydick, you are doing the good old christian assumption (tainted by syphilitic degradation of the brain) that miraculously becomes knowledge.
So you are not aware that you dick drips? Mnnn, ever noticed the damp putrid, reeking stains on you underpants? Could be a hint there for you.
There you go again guessing, it makes you look even more of a blithering moron

Thanks for establishing your overt racism, too, Skanque.
If I were or had been married that it would be especially offensive if my wife ran off with a 'blackman'.
Like most American men, satisfying American women is not so high on the list and running away isn't nearly as bad as coming back with a lawyer and taking away our stuff.
Or worse... coming back and staying.
Blackman, eh, bigot? poor form, eh?
Hey butt breath, I am not the one objecting or claiming that it would be offensive if your wife ran off with a black man. Thank you for admitting you are a selfish misogynous moron, no wonder you wife ran off.
Skanque and assumptions eh? Poor form eh?

Honey if you don’t like the results then don’t dish the crap.

Our country is more powerful than your country has ever been and your country has been sliding downhill for one hundred years. The last to biggest wars we have been in we got dragged in to save your worthless bigoted hides. If the US had not been dragged into WWI to save the UK, there would not have been a WWII, there would not have been a person like Hitler.
If only it were possible to turn back the clock and when England came crying in 1916, the US could have (should have) said: EH!
Wrong, the British Empire was the LARGEST, most POWEFUL Empire EVER in HISTORY. When you can say the same for the US feel free to come back and try again

Correct, the empire has been reducing for a while

Wrong the US joined WW1 mainly because of the sinking of the Lusitania in which a number of US citizens died. The Zimmerman telegram also helped in with the evidence that the US was being plotted against. Financial, with 2.5+ billion dollars invested in the allies the US was protecting it’s investment. The withdrawal of Russia from the hostilities because of the revolution caused the US to consider the progress of democracy.

Do you really think that any of these would make any difference to Mr Hitler senior screwing his wife?

Wrong, the US eventually joined WW2 because Japan and Germany BOTH declared war on you.

The UK bombed the hell out of German cities in WWII, killing 500,000 in Dresden alone.
Yes, it was war, you point is?

Actually the number of deaths is disputed between 22,000 and 135,000 (German official figures) for the Dresden bombings. Once again your knowledge of history fails you.

BTW Germany bombed the hell out of London, Coventry Liverpool, Manchester, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Ipswich and many other strategic towns and cities killing around 60,000 people.

BWT the US bombed Hiroshima and in one day killed 60,000 people
BTW the US bombed Nagasaki and in one day killed 75,000 people

Do try to follow the thread, Skanque. I am not the one crying that Britannia was ruling the waves.
I don't think you will find many Americans expecting to here thanks from the UK for saving their bacon in WWI and WWII but I think you will find you raise their ire when you (et al.) diminishing the roles we played, e.g., insisting Canada played a bigger part than did the US, which, factually, is absolutely wrong and I haven't heard you say anything to the contrary, and B) is also an insult to Canada which, like the US, really had no business in the fight that you guys started.
PS: you still owe all 'blackmen' an apology, in your effort (failing efforts) to insult me, you let your bigotry out for all to see.
Your sexual fantasies withstanding...
Funnily enough nor was I but hey don’t let a little thing like that stop you
Did I say Canada played a bigger part, I think not, I think you are confused, could be your medication for your schizophrenia or it could be you syphilis screwing with your memory. However they did come to the aid of the allies voluntarily without the coercion of two countries declaring war on them

Why do I owe black men an apology? For saying they are black? Honey, you are deranged. Only a bigoted sh|t for brains closet racist would even consider such a statement. Or are you simply protesting to much because the truth hurts so…

Which sexual fantasies are these that you think your guesses tell you so well?

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.
Brilliantly and concisely put

In the 1973 referendum the public were asked

1. Do you want Northern Ireland to remain part of the United Kingdom?
or
2. Do you want Northern Ireland to be joined with the Republic of Ireland outside the United Kingdom?

the result was 98.9% in favour of option 1

The US joined WWI because the UK begged us to join & as in WWII, we were not neutral in the first place. The UK saturated the US with propaganda

And of course the UK was smuggling in arms in the Lusitania (in violation of international law) which blew to smithereens when the ammo it was carry set off.

The bottom line is: the US did join and the US broke the stalemate in Europe and the US and a force of 4 million changed the outcome of the war.

Which, in the end, was rather unfortunate.

In world war one Canada played a much bigger role and were a more important contributor than USA, Canada were in the war from the very begining, USA only for the last year, Canada made huge land gains and killed far more Germans, USA made virtually no land gains at all and killed very few Germans

You mean like the fact that the UK would not have won either world war were it not for the USA?

Or the fact that the UK has been in a downhill spiral since the Boer Wars?

Or the fact that the United Kingdom is still a monarchy?

Or the fact that the Queen appoints the PMs?

Or the fact that the UK requires collective Christian worship?

Or the subjects of the UK pay taxes for state church projects and religious broadcasting?

Facts that you and yours continue to deny?
