I would like my subscription cancelled. Throughout all the issues I have received, you have allowed the near-encompassing use of B.C.E. [Before the Common Era—Ed.]—so much so that I was surprised to find the traditional reference B.C. in an article in the last issue.
I am appalled at the politically correct trend of denigrating Christ and removing any reference to God in public. Furthermore, what gall do the BAR editors have to decide, themselves, that suddenly a tradition that has been used for hundreds of years to mark time should be done away with?
I will not support such a magazine by continuing my subscription.
We do not decide which designations to use—we let our authors decide. B.C.E. and C.E. (Common Era) are the terms widely used by scholars. Staff-written articles use the terms B.C. and A.D.—Ed.
