There are nine words in your quote. None of them are "has".

Why, Barefoot, are you trying to conflate "is" and "has"?

And the rest of that sentence you have omitted was "system of government".

You know full well what my argument has been ever since I started posting. To keep trying to set up strawmen is simply sad.

I reminded Barefoot that I have on three occasions posted his direct quotes about Sweden's name making it a monarchy and three times he has ignored them.

His response:

A loaded question and a strawman; neither of which have anything to do with his contradiction-in-one-page.

By Barefoot's book, North Korea and China are democratic republics.

That's nice. Can you now provide us a definition for democracy and show how Britain and Sweden cannot qualify as democracies?

Remember: by your argument of things only belonging to one family/definition, the United States is a republic and only a republic.

Also: when are you going to post the "ENTIRE COMMENT" and show the following paragraph that you omitted from quoting me?

Are you sure he is "a cristian like you?" Why is the government installing Muslim foot baths in the State Capitol of Tennessee? There is already a minaret on top of the State Capitol in Nashville as you can clearly see at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tennessee_State_...

Are atheists fair game for Muslims? And if atheists are fair game for Muslims, why can't Christians and Buddhists and Hindus enjoy the fun?

"Jonathon Turley, a law professor at George Washington University, reports on a disturbing case in which a state judge in Pennsylvania threw out an assault case involving a Muslim attacking an atheist for insulting the Prophet Muhammad. Judge Martin stated that the First Amendment of the Constitution does not permit people to provoke other people."

Funny how SuperFAG can insist no one denies that the UK is a monarchy in one breath but he says this in another:

Everyone here can see I posted the COMPLETE post, the COMPLETE paragraph, the COMPLETE sentence and now as much as I need to post.

And we are all amused as you try to explain how you can say that no one denies the Britain is a monarchy in one breath and then you yourself deny it in another.

Dance for me, Aunt Sally.

Dance.

Elementary School Question 1:

Atheism = lack of belief in god.

Find in the above definition, the words murder / kill / genocide / harm / judgement / sins

That's right f*cker you're a proven lying sack of sh*t.

evangelical atheist = one who not only believes there is no god or other supreme being, but is obsessed with convincing everyone around them to become an atheist too, usually through hard-line intolerance (the kind they accuse other religions of).

When cornered they usually try to put down their opponent's religion and bash them for 'blind faith', not realizing that their belief that there is no god is no more or less valid or provable than the other guy's belief that there is one.

Religious people like Lincoln are dishonest about the fact that they have no proof of god and that they don't understand science sufficiently to realise that there is and never has been a single piece of evidence that supports the claim that god is real. Therefore atheism is fully supported by science with more than 90% of senior scientists professing atheism.
At the end of the day, when you ask religious people for proof of god, they attack you or insult you and will not be brave enough to face the fact that they are lying to themselves / suffer from a mental delusion.
