Jesus - still the most controversial figure

Two things floating around in the news remind me that Jesus remains the most controversial world figure.

Entertainment Weekly, which for the record I don't read, has come out with a list of the most controversial movies of all time. Among them are three movies about Jesus - or which at least claim to be about Jesus in some way. Topping the list was The Passion Of The Christ. Also on the list were The DaVinci Code and The Last Temptation Of Christ.

Another interesting item: the State of Kentucky's schools just decided not to drop the terms B.C. and A.D. in favor of the supposedly "less offensive" B.C.E. and C.E. A large e-mail protest campaign helped to ensure that in Kentucky, at least, we are still in A. D. 2006. As we watch antichristian and revisionist forces continue to try to erase all traces of our Christian heritage, we should remember that revolutionaries have always found it necessary to make "re-calendaring" one of their first official acts.
