    If it weren't for repeat polls, we'd have no new polls.

    Yeah, in Iran they'd cut your ****ing head off for holding an Easter egg. Remember that the next time you ramble on about America.

    As per the 2011 census, Iran has almost 120,000 Christians.

    I don't believe this to be a true statement. There is Christian persecution in Iran but churches still exist and hold services

    There might be more than that.

    Christians persecuted at alarming rate in Iran, Arab world, US report says | Fox News

    Hardly explains bringing out a extremist book that I've never seen in my life before, and painting America with it. You should focus on that bull**** instead. If the worse you get here is a book, there's nothing to complain about. He just wanted to take a cheap shot at America, and maybe that should concern you too.

    When a nation has a government-supported church, The Church of England, and the titular head of government, H M Elizabeth II is also the leader of the church -- yes, one could call England a Christian nation.

    Reading the comments at The Daily Express, it seems Mr Cameron has upset the bigots and Islamophobes by his earlier statements in favour or religious tolerance. England too, seem to have a group that can only understand bilateral thinking.

    Something they typically put you in jail for or cut your head off?

    From what I understand - Canadian citizens, permanently – long term -residing out of the country during that tax year – are not required to file Canadian tax on income earned while employed outside of the country.
    I could be wrong.
    If my post offends you, I deeply Apple-O-Jize.
