During the Salem witch trials, witches weren't the only people burned. gays were burned as well, but were viewed to be lower than the witches, so they were often used to fuel the fires to burn the witches instead of using bundles of sticks.

Hence the term "flaming faggot".

You realize I pulled that directly from the Wikipedia article Faggot (slang): Faggot, often shortened to fag, is a pejorative term broadly meaning an effeminate gay man.

Directly from the article with very little critical thought on my part. Simply presented evidence that is strongly counter to the statement you made in an attempt to disprove your assertion. It is not something I am personally involved in researching. However, the article states the term faggot probably derives for the term for an older female and earlier a "faggot-gatherer."

Directly from the article:

"The origins of the word as an offensive epithet for homosexuals are rather obscure, although the word has been used in English since the late 16th century as an abusive term for women, particularly old women,[7] and reference to homosexuality may derive from this,[6][8] as female terms are often used with reference to homosexual or effeminate men (cf. nancy, sissy, queen). The application of the term to old women is possibly a shortening of the term "faggot-gatherer", applied in the 19th century to people, especially older widows, who made a meagre living by gathering and selling firewood"

It is likely that this is where the term faggot derives from and the flaming aspect derives from one of the meanings of flaming prior to it being attached to homosexuals or faggots: www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=flaming&allowed_in_frame=0

To put it another way: Flaming faggot is a clever play on words meaning either a pile of sticks meant for burning which are on fire or a homosexual of strong passions (ie a very obvious homosexual).

My grandfather who was a Green Beret introduced me to the song years ago. I found it on youtube and still love it.

FJ uses the facts they learned here in real life:

"Hey anon! Did you know that the Roman empire was only the 19th largest in the history of empires?"
"Cool! Which ones were larger?"
"Umm... Eeehh.. **** ."

Slave (n): A person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them   
I expect there were harsh punishments for a 'worker' who refused to work. That still technically makes them slaves, no?

I don't know why but the Roman one really rustled my jimmies. You know why people, historians, and history hold the Roman Empire esteemed? Yes its size was impressive, but the Romans were so technologically advanced for their time, it took until the renaissance to rediscover or match these technological innovations. Or maybe it was the thouasands of miles of paved roads, architecture unmatched until the renaissance, military superiority in which modern day military get their structure basis from, or the fact that their law and government were very advanced and our systems are designed after theirs. Maybe it was the fact that they lasted for over a thousand years? Who knows, but we have pretty much our modern society is set up after the Romans. If you would compare the Roman Society to ones leading up to and presently, the United States would best compare. But isn't it amazing that it took 1,500 years for man to come to that point once again? I think it is. Also historians suspect that there was 100 million romans at the time of collapse, only 5 million with roman heritage could be found a century later. Makes you wonder what would happen after another collapse...

**** you, OP. Learn your history. In the map of the Roman Empire, it never occupied or even touched Hibernia, or what we call today Ireland. Read a book
