What does it matter? You are not only wrong about MPs solely being appointed by the church, but you are wrong that the Church of England even appoints them in the first place!
Your whole claim has been a lie this whole time.

How pathetic you are, Shug, that you have to invent things I did not say to try to make an argument that cannot be made, in the face of facts that cannot be denied.

Nope, local radio station here in South Africa had an interview with the bloke.

To say that he was *a* rugby player is like saying that Everest is a big mountain. What a legend.

Was with the British Lions when they played the Boks here in 1974, under Willie John McBride. With Gareth Edwards, JPR and JJ Williams - the most formidable Northern Hemisphere side in my humble opinion, ever.

The UK is not a secular county, putting aside Britain isn't a country in the first place. Asking if Britian is a more secular country than the US is like asking if the MG Miget is a nicer tree than as twelve foot tape measure.

"Moving the goalposts, also known as raising the bar, is an informal logically fallacious argument in which evidence presented in response to a specific claim is dismissed and some other (often greater) evidence is demanded. In other words, after a goal has been scored, the goalposts are moved farther to discount the attempt. This attempts to leave the impression that an argument had a fair hearing while actually reaching a preordained conclusion."

You lied about the Church of England appointing MPs. Why should anyobdy care for your new demands, especially when it is ultimately pointless considering the Church of England plays no serious role in British politics whatsoever?

You lose, Barefoot. Let us know when you can find a British political source that tells us about the Church of England appointing MPs.

Not bad. I'm more of a football person than rugby, especially since Scotland is pretty rubbish at it these days.

Review: you insist you voted for appointments made by the Church of England; I denied you did and demanded you prove it.

You now say these appointments made by the Church of England don't really count.

The secularity of the UK state cannot be compared to the USA as the UK is not a secular state.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion"
"In God We Trust" is establishing religion.
So much for your secular democracy.
No. "In God We Trust" establishes no religion, as numerous different "religions" believe in "God".

The prohibition is against Congress passing federal laws with respect to "establishment(s) of religion", which means an official government religion.

You have not one clue what the establishment clause means.

The government can constitutionally say or write or declare anything about God it wants. This violates nothing in the Constitution.

Moron.
