Hitchens.
The excuse is always that referring to Anno Domini ‘In the year of our Lord’ and ‘Before Christ’ will in some way upset followers of other religions. The same pretext is always used for clumsy attempts to avoid mentioning Easter and Christmas, and the horrible neutered greeting card expressions ‘Season’s Greetings’ and, worse still, ‘Happy Holidays’.

But nobody can ever find anyone who is offended by these things. The people who want to stamp out any reference to the word ‘Christ’ in our culture are the anti-Christian fanatics who have fanned out across the country since the universities began to churn them out in large numbers in the 1960s. Their anthem is John Lennon’s ghastly song Imagine and their creed is the selfism of the drug abuser and the abortionist: ‘Nobody can tell me what to do with my body.’

I've had the AD/CE argument with a born again type*.

I pointed out that it was imposed by the Romans/Catholics, and that it is objectively, demonstrably incorrect (Herod dying in 4BCE).

He found the former much more persuasive. The latter, to him, just meant we needed to change the number of the year. Also, he tended toward using the fact that the whole world used the year as a point to prove Jeebus was really real. Countering that it was a Thursday in March, so therefore Thor and Mars too just met with blank stares.

"Lord, there is much unhappiness in the world. Many of your children go hungry, there is great wickedness and cruelty in some parts, there is greed and inequality, and many of the young and innocent are in immense pain due to continued unjust warfare."

"I cannot intercede, I made a covenant with Noah that mankind must have free will"

"They're also using that BCE thing"

"Right! I'll show the little shits! "

*sends another great flood*

Yep, that's how it'll be. Obviously.

'Now my daughter doesn't believe in Santa!' Parents accuse Amazon of RUINING Christmas by delivering orders without packaging – leaving children to see the toys they're getting
What part of "Item arrives in packaging that reveals what's inside. To hide it, choose Ship in Amazon packaging." do Brexiters not understand?

After moaning about Amazon sending everything in cardboard boxes, they're now moaning about Amazon listening to their complaints and now sending stuff without cardboard boxes.

Own goal :lol:

It's Give Amazon a kicking day.
Don't talk about Christmas in front of Alexa! Unwitting parents are accidentally ORDERING gifts by discussing them in front of virtual assistants
And for the hard of thinking.

I am finding the modern world and especially these digital assistants increasingly bewildering. Just as I have installed some FPGA programming software on my laptop and debate learning about it... I really enjoyed swapping bits and examining two tellies from 1954 today - they were new models designed to get the new commercial channel, you know!

Yay! A real actual ban!
Secondary school BANS Christmas for being 'too commercial' - but pupils can get festive activities back if they send 'persuasive' reasons to RE teacher who says it should be about 'Jesus'

It doesn't take much reading of that article to see that the school are teaching pupils what Christmas should really be about and there'll soon be decorations, trees and Ickle Baby Jesus with the Angles all over the place. But let's not bother with all that thinking when there are Muslims to bash.
