So you want to protest how someone chooses to worship now?

After 4 years of defensive fighting. They were only able to push westward after the Allies began operations on Germany's other flank. But thankfully they got to Berlin.

Read again what I wrote. I wouldn't want Jews, Muslims, athiests, or Buddist to protest; this isn't a constitutional or U.S. matter, I think true Christians should protest.

But nice try...

Operations made far less costly in casualties when the Russians stalled the German offensive and kept the Germans occupied, drawing resources away from the Western Front.

Your quote, "Makes me superior to most UK folk who havent fully evolved", is interesting. I make a point of it usually to avoid arguments with people on the internet because it is often impossible to know if you are arguing with a child, a lunatic, etc. However, I'll take a chance here.

That quote, if you were serious, says much. You congratulate yourself for being so enlightened as to never fight for your country (if you consider it your country) under any circumstances, yet you invoke the supposed prestige of your elite university degree to claim superiority over your countrymen. Did your country pay for your degree and give you a living stipend while you schooled in the history of the rest of the world?

Congratulations on earning your history degree. A minor in social etiquette may have served you well too. Tell us, what have you done with your "top 10 UK uni" degree since earning it besides hitting those whom you consider your inferiors over the head with it? I hope you've done something meaningful or you've wasted your time and your country's tax money. PS...rancorous discourse on internet music-fan sites does not count. So far, it appears that you've only used your elite university degree to perpetuate the snobby class system that the UK needs to put behind it. So were you born into the UK upper caste or are were you among the ranks of those unfortunate Britons who have the brains to attend UK universities, longing to be accepted into the upper class, but alas only get to look over the other side of the mountain to the land of milk and honey?

Accept my apologies in advance if you were only joking in the first place.

So these gun-toters shouldn't be considered true Christians?

MATE
I payed for my degree. I'm now doing a Masters which i funded myself, by working and saving.

My family is not rich. I'd say I am lower middle class now (however you define it) but my grandparents worked in factories when they first arrived, facing racial abuse. My mum worked permanent nights in a factory which she hated and it had massive impact on her health, but she had to do it to pay the bills. My dad has no qualiifcations but he has woked for the last 35 years. Me and my bro are the first to go to uni in our entire family.

No handouts in my family (thats why i hate Labour, they help undeserving chavs) When i was at school (16-18), i applied for £30 a week grant for students. I was told i dont fit into the threshold.
Instead all the dumb ass kids who got no qualifications were rewarded with £30 a week to turn up to school. It takes the piss. £30 a week, if saved, would have helped at uni. I owe no one anything and have no intention of helping others.

I am from a family of immigrants. I am British born and think that despite its problems (chavs), the UK is one of the greatest places to live in the world. I live in the arsehole of Britian, the West Midlands. I went to a shitty school where attainment levels are low. No one else in the 65 year history of my school went to a uni ranked as high as mine or got my grades.

I am 100% British and always will be no matter what anyone else tells me. But to say i'd die for my country, no chance.

I love Britain. It has given me a great standard of living. I've been to other places and thought 'living in uk is like winning the lottery'

I look down on certain people as i despise how they behave. They beg in the street at 2pm, drunk, asking for 20p. Not my duty to help them. When i walk past and ignore them, i get greeted with the response 'fucking arab shit'
Then there is the kids who know no boundaries, why should i respect them?

I wouldnt fight for UK as i dont want to get hurt. Simple as that.

What i said about most people not being fully evolved i take back. It's probably only 25%. But 25% too many
