The Next Fundie Outrage?

I think this is silly since I'm not a christian, but you know how these things work. Apparently some universities are switching from using BC and AD to BCE (Before the Common Era) and CE (Common Era). This story says that most major textbook companies have adopted the terms already. I have to admit it has been close to fifteen years since I picked up a textbook so this is new to me. Has anyone seen this? Does anyone care? I don't and will continue to use what I grew up using. Anyway being Good Friday and all I'd like to wish everybody Happy Holidays.

Just in case you really wanted a comment, they changed dates to BCE/CE while I was still in high school (I'm a second year grad student now.) And, if it means anything to you, I'm a Christian who's in seminary, and I've never minded. Then again, I'm not a fundie. That's all. Happy Easter.
