Churches- particularly, the Church of England- do in fact receive tax monies and tax privileges.
Wrong in fact they DON’T. The UK does not operate under the same tax laws as the US. Unlike the US churches tax exempt status individual churches in UK are classed as charities and hence can claim gift aid status.

In the same way they can claim (as can all registered charities) a small segment of broadcasting time. Time on the BBC is paid for out of licence fees (This is not a tax). Time on commercial channels is funded by a small percentage of advertising revenue (this is not tax). And of course equal time must be given to opposing views if such views exist.

Other than that they pay tax at the normal rate, just like everyone else – except of course certain major US organisations operating in the UK who seem to think moneys earned in the UK is not subject to tax

Any donation not signed for as gift aid by the donor, earnings/interest on investments and other income is taxed at standard rate.

Yes, it seems that Great Britain could not get along with anyone.
Poor Packy keeps forgetting that Great Britain wasn't too busy to stop American ships on the high seas and kidnap American sailors.
I wonder how long it would have taken Great Britain to declare war on US or any other country that stopped one of its ships on the high seas?
What, more barfy butt face racism

Great Britain got their azzes kicked in their own country.
Americans threw them out in 1776, and threw them out again in 1812.
All of Great Britain can fit in one of our states- as a matter of fact, Packy, ELEVEN of our states are larger.
The United Kingdom is **LUCKY** to have an ally like the USA.
We saved "your" azzes out of two life or death jams.
We certainly don't need you.
Do you ever feel ashamed?

You post even more barfy butt face racism

And we already know you to be a m/f c/s liar, thanks for posting proof yet again.
Great Britain impressed sailors whenever it felt short of sailors- they started in their own country, and then went to countries that it thought wouldn't be able to fight back.
Like the US.
It was wrong.
And even more barfy butt face racism

Dearest cuckold Barfy Butt Face you snivelling yellow bellied cowardly drippydick moron, that’s 10 instances of your blatant racist cr/\p in less than one day.

You are obsessive, you are sick in the head, you are idiotic and you are so obviously insecure in your nationality that you feel the need to verbally abuse anything not you.

We can of course understand that you are an American of the tiny intelligence persuasion and therefore you see nothing untoward in such abusive behaviour (except of course when it is directed at yourself, how’s your wife and her macho black lover getting on mr cuckold? Does she let you clean her out when she gets home? Or does she leave you locked in your mr tiny cock cage and dripping?)

You are fortunate that Straa is not easily offended by you blatant racism

I would not stoop to his level of name-calling and insults. That is what Barefoot is aiming for and where he gets his kicks from.

Just whack him with the facts; he cannot reply without making more claims that contradicts his old ones, and as such, he gets even more frustrated and acts even more childish. That's where I get mine from, and from where everyone should.

Don't let little Barefoot turn this into a playground.

He began the name calling with his skanque, I am returning the compliment and he obviously does not like it, perhaps it’s a little to close to the truth. I am not one to stand idly by while some ignoramus abuses me, I feel I am entitled to retaliate. However if he deists that I will too.

Absolutely

It's enough for me to wind him up by posting ridiculous assertions like "slavery is legal in the USA".

Then watch him dance.

You're quite entitled to retaliate.

Sadly, barefoot will never desist. He thrives on arguing with as many people as he possibly can and if that means being first with the name-calling then that's exactly what he'll do.

You're also spot on about his blatant racism towards Straa

Perhaps more people should report it - I have.

Your logic is typical of fundamentalists who think that if they can find any definition in a dictionary to back up their position, no matter how out of context they are when applied to real-world examples, then that definition becomes official.
It isn't out of context to call a monarchy a monarchy.

Your excuses are typical of a NotBot who finds my foot up their azzes when they say something stupid like the same definition in the English language from a dozen different sources doesn't mean what it means.

The United KING_dom is a monarchy.
The KING_dom of Sweden is a monarchy.

SuperFAG cannot admit he is wrong about anything, even when it has been stuffed up his azz.

For instance, since Zimbabwe holds "democratic" elections, it is therefore a democracy.
For example, the head of state of the United KING_dom is a monarch. Therefore- according to definition- Barefoot2626 is right and no matter how hard you stomp your feet: you are wrong.

Any country that issues tax free status to any religion has issues
Any country that issues tax free status to religions that it determines to have more validity than any other religion has separation of church and state issues.

And of course: if it has an official state church (or a national church), then it more.

The monarchy of the United King_dom has issues.

The fact is, Barefoot, that we Brits are just a typical democratic country that you see throughout the West.
You are subjects of a monarchy whose head of state who not only controls how your country is governed is also the head of your state religion.

You have had the same head of state for 60 years, and will have no say on her replacement.

No matter how hard you stomp your feet.

Let me know when you can find an estimate where no one was killed by the Allied bombing of this city that had no strategic importance whatsoever.

P.S. The US were highly involved in the Dresden bombing
The sun rises in the east and sets in the west and do let me know when you can find anything I have ever said that denies the US's part of the bombing of Dresden and other nonstrategic bombings of cities in Europe and Japan.

The US was of course heavily involved in WWII except when the English NotBots deny that the US came in and saved their bacon... at which point they insist the US played a secondary role.

And the only thing I have to disprove what they say are the facts.
