Standing is not genuflecting.

Quote:Does anyone even genuflect in church?

Yes; very big in Catholicism. I'm not sure how prevalent it is in other faiths.

Quote:The only time I see people genuflecting is in politics.

Citation?

Quote:I just used the word because its funny.

It isn't funny when you use it so obviously wrong. It just reinforces the opinion that you really don't understand what words mean, or even what they are.

Now THIS is a funny use of genuflect:

Does anyone even genuflect in church?

They also stand when the bride walks down the aisle at weddings.

To also answer your question about if people still genuflect in church. Roman Catholics still do. It's a rote action.

No but whore-houses are.

If she's not genuflecting before thee within the first 2 minutes, she's doing it wrong.

And if she's not ejaculating god's name within 30 minutes... you're doing it wrong.

Those are not the only two choices. But, given those options, the answer is "neither".

They both have common origins in how authority was displayed and represented.

Its a good thing that judge guy wears that black dress to make what he is doing look legitimate.

Actually, what makes it look legitimate is that he is an independent arm of the government, which in turn derives its legitimacy from the consent of those governed (democracy). People don't just assume the court is legitimate because the judge wears a robe. Roland Frasier wore the proper robe and everyone still knew the People's Court was bullshit.
