In a troubling sign of things to come across the Western world, government schools across the United Kingdom will no longer use the terms “Before Christ” (BC) or “Anno Domini” (AD) for historical dates — even in religious education. Instead, schools will refer to BCE for “Before Common Era” (BCE) and CE for “Common Era.”

The decision, made by U.K. religious education committees in multiple jurisdictions, was supposedly aimed at ensuring that the fast-growing population of Muslims do not get “offended.” And yet, according to U.K. Daily Mail, “Muslim and Jewish leaders were also mystified, saying they were not offended by the familiar terms.” Muslim and Jewish leaders were quoted in the article saying as much.

One example of the change emerged in the education syllabus for schools in East Sussex, one of the jurisdictions to capitulate to efforts by jihadists and anti-Christian forces to remove Christ from every sector of society. “BCE and CE are now used in order to show sensitivity to those who are not Christians,” the document reads.
