Ahh I understand now, so pledging allegiance to a particular god and a piece of fabric not worship?
Nope.

And one doesn't pledge allegiance to a God, Skanque.

If you WANT to pledge- it isn't required- one pledges allegiance to the country.

I guess the syphilis has gone straight to the brain, eh?

better than over in the UK, where you pledge to the Queen...

And where you have a state religion.

And where collective worship is required by LAW.

Then please advise why both list the “American dialect” as a language?
Neither do, Shug.

No matter how hard you stamp your fat hooves: "American" isn't a language.

We all understand how impossible it is for you to admit you are wrong...ever.

You did not get up to adjectives and adverbs in middle school, eh, Skanque?

Now, is the United KING_dom a monarchy, yes or no?

Hard to mention things with your mouthful, eh, Skanque?

BTW: I listed the OFFICIAL website of the UK monarchy and parliament a very long time ago...

...since both sites confirm that the UK is a monarchy.

Like I said... Skanque.

It seems that you are quite happy for such forced worship to be imposed on US school children but you object when it is optional for British schoolchildren
It isn't option.

It is the law.

"Collective Worship

The law in England and Wales provides that children at all maintained schools "shall on each school day take part in an act of collective worship". In community schools, the worship must be wholly or mainly of a Christian character. In Academies and free schools the arrangements will depend on the funding agreement, which will usually have a compulsory worship element built in.

Britain is the only Western democracy to require worship in non-religious publicly funded schools."

Here's fewer words:

"The law in England and Wales provides that children at all maintained schools 'shall on each school day take part in an act of collective worship'."

From this site

"Royal Assent

When a Bill has been approved by a majority in the House of Commons and the House of Lords it is formally agreed to by the Crown. This is known as the Royal Assent. This turns a Bill into an Act of Parliament, allowing it to become law in the UK."

To become law: requires agreement of the Queen.

Why do you people bother with barefoot2626? He never makes a point about anything, and rarely stays on topic. ALL he ever talks about is gay sex and young boys. He is a fat old man (fact, not speculation) who only craves attention and uses name-calling on topix to feed the need.

Try ignoring him and let him argue with himself. Don't answer anything he says and you will hurt him more than responding to him. He LOVES to get into a screaming match.

Try it for a while. You have nothing to lose.

I'll start it off.

Funny how you- and your tribe of aliases- have enough time to stalk me through Topix threads and lecture people about "bothering" with Barefoot2626.

Poor Meatball: can never use what I actually say, he has to pretend I said it.

The Kingdom of Sweden is MONARCHY because it- wait for it- it has a MONARCH as the head of state.
