From The Forward: Religious Groups Push Kentucky Schools To Use ‘Before Christ’

Activists, along with the governor and other state politicians, have accused the State Board of Education of attempting to drive Christianity from the classroom through the use of secular notations, like BCE for “Before the Common Era,” in place of religious ones, like B.C. for “Before Christ.” The Western calendar counts years from the traditional birth of Jesus. The use of the notations B.C. and A.D. (anno Domini, Latin for “the year of the Lord”) has been avoided for more than a century by religious Jews who use the notations BCE and C.E. That practice has been gaining currency in some parts of the country in recent years.
