Of course, in the monarchy in the UK, they still have the state church.
Which is irrelevant considering the British public tend to be liberal on social matters and as such have no problem with others following different faiths or not having one.

I know, the exact and true definitions make it hard for you, e.g., that the PM is *appointed*... literally... instead of your figurative 'elected', that unanimous means 'everybody' instead of your figurative 'almost everybody', that the law in the UK requires collective worship 'literally' instead of your figurative 'there's no law requiring Christian worship', and that the UK is only 'literally' a monarchy instead of your figurative 'sometime it is a monarchy and sometimes it isn't'.

And added to that list of "exact and true definitions" is the twelfth amendment.

You can't have your cake and eat it, manchild. If we must take British laws literally, we must take American law literally.

And the title of the thread is "In America, atheists are still in the closet".

Let me highlight the key word again:

"America".

Your literal British laws have nothing to do with it.

Once again stop projecting. Facts, not projection, will help you.

Stop running away from the twelfth amendment. If we must take British law literally, all law - including yours- must be taken literally also.

No matter how hard you try you cannot keep your cake after eating it.

In other words, manchild could not admit that his army of red herrings and strawmen about Britain has no relevance to the thread.

We knew who was dealing in the minute you decided to deny the fact the United KING_dom was a monarchy.

Well... what else do you have? the "Kingdom" is now a single time zone.

HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAH!

And do this day you cannot refute my arguments. That is because, manchild, you have no argument.

Stop being obtuse. Explain why British law must be taken literally, but American law - such as the twelfth amendment - can be ignored.

Already answered - go find it, manchild. It is next to your "answer" regarding the United States being a republic.

Posted before you even brought it up.

I bet you, but as we both know: your word is absolutely worthless and you've already britished out of a bet.

Putting aside: it's another herring, Aunt Sally.

One quote says has, the other is. In manchild land, owning a car = being a car.

Stop lying like a coward.

As we both know you are lying about a bet. This is the second, probably third, lie of your post already.
