Outstanding! Texas Textbooks Will Say BC and AD instead of BCE and CE. Stands Up Against Political Correctness.

govt-censorship In case you were not aware, liberals had done everything they could to remove Christianity’s influence and even its existence from the world.

One of the ones that caught me completely by surprise was BCE/CE.  What is that?

Well, according to liberal educators, the Pharaoh Ramesses II died in 1213 BCE, which means “Before Common Era”, not 1213 BC which as we all know means “Before Christ”.

Those same people say Ronald Reagan in 1981 CE or “Common Era” instead of 1981 AD which stands for “Anno Domini” or “In the year of our Lord”

Notice the difference?  That’s right.  Let’s remove the references to Christ and replace it with the “Common Era” that just happens to have started at the same time.

These liberal “historians” will say that they are removing the religious bias to these dates, but they do it by denying the impact Christianity has had on history.

“Common Era” simply draws attention to the fact that they are trying to hide Christianity.

Anyone who has read this blog knows I am not religious, but I HATE seeing this PC cleansing of our society.

So, it is with a smile on my face that I watched the Texas textbook panel stand against the liberal machine and voted for the traditional method of writing the date.

OUTSTANDING!!

    Now how about people in the US who are not Christian such as Buddhists, Muslims, and Jews?

    That would make for an interesting question IF the traditional way to write the date was “Before Moses” or “After Moses”, but it was not.

    If that were the case, I would make the same argument. However, none of those religions set the standard for the date, Christianity did. The Gregorian calendar was invented by a 6th century monk. Its the most widely used one today.

    If the Buddhist calendar had that position, I would want it to be used. It the Jewish calendar was that prominent and in common use, I would argue for it.

    You will notice I have avoided mentioning Muslims. Do some research on Islam and science and you will see why.

    People seem to think that Christianity requires a refutation of other religions. That is just ignorant. These are usually the same people who argue that “separation of church and state” is actually in the Constitution.

    GET IT RIGHT! “Anno domini” means in “the year of our Lord _ NOT “after death”

    You are absolutely right, and I am correcting the article. Thanks

    Why does it matter so much? The year is still the same, and the Gregorian calendar is being used world wide as an international standard, isn’t that testament enough to the impact of Christianity?
