UK schools are ditching AD and BC in Rel. Ed lessons to not offend non-Christians


Daily Mail UK: The traditional terms BC, Before Christ, and AD, Anno Domini, are being ditched for BCE – Before Common Era, and CE – Common Era.

  • The new terms still denote the periods before and after the birth of Christ
  • Former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey said the rulings by the religious education committees were a ‘great shame’
  • Local authority committees drawing up religious education syllabuses say the old terms may upset minorities or non-believers. But critics blasted the move as a ‘capitulation to political correctness’’. more 

Opinion: It feels like someone or something is checking off the boxes on some evil list in preparation for a global entity to walk in and right all the world’s wrongs. It is not any one nation checking the boxes, it is all of them, and it feels like the checklist is speeding up.

In earlier posts we called it an ‘infrastructure’. Preparation for the final dictator (Rev. 6:1-2, 13:1-2) has been going on for decades because when he arrives he will only have 7 years to take out his rage on a Christ-rejecting world.

Keep in mind that public institutions have been labeling the eras this way for years. This change is now occurring in religious education.

It used to be that terrorism and global upheaval would drop the stock market, shake public confidence, and cause our daily reader numbers to rise 30-40%. Lately though, terror attacks and global upheaval are making stocks go higher, consumer confidence keeps climbing, yet our daily reader count stays about the same.

Is the world becoming numb to terror and global upheaval? I think that is a rhetorical question.
