If you want to insist a country like the UK- most of its Parliament are APPOINTED and has a Queen as a head of state is democratic, you can see why I'll point to the fact you don't know what you are talking about.

Funny how many posts you put up announcing that you ignore my posts...
Christian organizations =$45 million
Atheist organizations =? anything?
Who gives a toss about your deliberately ignorant lies? We kniow you can show no evidence you your stupid claims but please feel free, if you can to provide such evidence, if you don’t then you are once again a proven liar. What you appear to be saying is that such secular charities as the American Red Cross, British Red Cross, The UN Children’s Fund, Médecins Sans Frontières, Oxfam etc don’t count in your world.

USA contributed far more than the UK.
Both in amount & per capita.
Wipe your chins, Sklanque.
PS: made up numbers on old data is worth exactly what your word is worth: not a damn thing.
Only in amount so no, and not made up, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humanitarian_res...

Note the tables of donors –

Pledged amounts as percentages of GDP
UK 0.0443%
US 0.036^%
You loose

And

Pledged amounts on a per capita basis
UK $13.20
US $9.81
You loose

OK that’s wikipedia, not really a valid source so how about
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asia-pacific...
gives the US at around $1320 million plus military help
and the UK at around $1028 plus less military help

This also shows that on a per capita basis you lose big time.

But you are free to stamp your foot and lie to your hearts content, it makes not the slightest difference to FACT that you are a pathetic lying loser who considers scrounging off relatives to get a roof over your head the way to go.

Funny, never a quote around when you need it.
Google search for “population of the us” top result 313.0 million (2012)

And http://www.census.gov/popclock/ is a live interactive page and gave 316,448,880 the moment I looked at the page

Same google search for “population of the uk” top result 62.74 million (2011)

And http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/taxonomy/index.html... gives 63.7 million

Enough quotes for you to choke on

In other words, I didn't say it, you said it for me and then you insist I have it wrong.

"Secular" charities are not atheist charities.

There make up is the same as the communities they reside- if anything, more religious.

Now fatty: where oh where are the contributions from the religious communities?

Of course I do and as I have pointed out the definition of ignored to you and you seem to have deliberately ignored that definition for some reason, most probably because that definition specifically cites “disregard intentionally” as part of that definition. Not to good at the English language are you?

Tell me do you ever get sick of being wrong?

Well done, This must be classed as pretty perfect cherry picking even by the high standards of cherry picking that you set for yourself.

Why do you have such a problem with references? Is it because they screw up your make believe BS?

I have listed several non religious based contributors, you seem to have IGNORED them for some strange reason, is it because their mention proves you to be a liar?

You do seem to have difficulties with the concept of atheism (just as so many godbots do).

The charities I mentioned are not religious based in any way, they have no belief in god or gods theretofore by the definition of atheism they are atheists.

You are welcome to bluster as much as you like, it makes not the slightest difference to fact

Gosh, I'm the one who insists the members of the House of Lords are appointed.

I'm the one who insists the United KING_dom is a monarchy.

I am the one that has posted the law requiring Christian worship in tax funded schools the UK and you are the one that denies it.

I am the one who told you that the first Enigma machines were captured in Norway.

Have you been right about anything that you have posted at all?
