WorldNetDaily: Kentucky goes P.C. on B.C., A.D.

Specifically, they are going to require that schools denote dates on each side of the year traditionally marked as the Birth of Christ as "in the Common Era" (CE) and "before the Common Era" (BCE).

What's next? I'll predict what's next: an adoption of the Lagrange Calendar, also known as the French Republican or "Revolutionary" Calendar, and the notations NWE (for New World Era) and BNWE for dating.

The American Family Association has already sent around an e-mail asking people to vote in a poll they have devised. That poll asks whether Congress ought to pass a law saying that AD and BC shall be the law of the land. Now Congress' authority in that regard is legitimately debatable, and some would say that if any State wants to make fools of its authorities and lawful residents, that is that State's business. But the Constitution already speaks of "years of Our Lord" and years of American independence. And that's as it should be.
