God save the queen

Before yesterday's match against Macedonia, I couldn't help but wonder why on earth I, an athiest republican, would want to sing a song to demand a god I don't believe in to save a monarchy I don't believe in from the Jacobite Rebellion which finished in 1745?

If not enough of us sing this song before each football match, will God ressurect the rebellion? Or is it that we need God to sort out the Scots who aren't fighting us anyway because the British Army's too busy fighting for the American empire in Iraq and Afghanistan? And if you were omnipotent creator of the universe, would you honestly bother checking out that crap draw, or for that matter, any team that Steve McLaren managed?
