What the f????

(whinge with a religious bent)

I've been hiding under a rock all these years. Centuries some might say. I've just discovered that the secularist have had a field day while I was under that rock.

It's no longer correct to use the abbreviation BC (Before Christ) nor AD (Anno Domini - translated as in the Year of our Lord). It's now BCE (Before the Common Era) or CE (Common Era). It matters not if 10 BC = 10 BCE or 2010 AD = 2010 CE.

Wikipedia said it better than I ever could...

"...the use of BCE/CE shows sensitivity to those who use the same year numbering system as the one that originated with and is currently used by Christians, but who are not themselves Christian."

WTF???

Totally pathetic - our world has become mostly run by savages and idiots who have the ability to vote and the unwillingness to use their brains.

What's a real shame is avoiding the facts for fear of offending :(

Well and good to call our years CE if our calendar was based on the signing of the Vulcanian Inter-Galactic Peace Accord (VIGPA) but alas that's not the case....

Lavender, sniggering is not politically correct. One must omit loud guffaws....

Oh, it's wrong to go Ho Ho Ho ???
