AFA lends new meaning to the phrase "saving time"

Another day, another farcockteh email from Daddy Dobson's minions. Today's big issue is yet another example of the war on religion (the only religion that matters being fundamental Christianity) and this time the assault comes courtesy of the evil secularization of the dating method. Yes, the AFA fears that Jesus is taking a beating by the Kentucky Board of Education's voting to use the terms BCE (Before Common Era) and CE (Common Era) in lieu of making reference to a year relative to their Lord:
Dear ol cranky,

The Kentucky Board of Education has voted to take the first step in redefining how America dates time. The board voted to include a new secular system of dating the calendar, BCE (Before Common Era) and CE (Common Era), and added it to the BC (Before Christ) and AD (Anno Domini, Latin for "in the year of our Lord") method.

The new secular system of time dating will appear in the curriculum and other materials used by Kentucky educators. This new system is already being included in textbooks across the nation.

The new method will replace the birth of Christ as the dividing point in history. For example, the new system would change 2006 AD (Anno Domini) to 2006 CE (Common Era).

It also opens the door for the ACLU to find a liberal activist judge who will forcefully remove the use of BC and AD. The ACLU types will claim that the use of BC and AD are a violation of the First Amendment because it dates history based on the birth of Christ.

Please forward this poll to your friends and family!
Take Action

Results of the poll will be shared with members of Congress.

Should Congress pass a law making BC/AD the official method of dating time?

Cast your vote. Give us your opinion!

P.S. Please forward this e-mail message to your family and friends!

I've forwarded the e-mail message, but I'm guessing my friends and family won't have any better luck getting their survey results saved than I've had. I'm sure they'll gladly provide Congress with their enriched/skewed survey results.
