Happy Easter!


Easter has a different date every year because it’s based on the moon phases. In 325 CE, Constantine I led a council of Christian bishops who decided that Easter must always be a Sunday to honor the resurrection of Jesus. They also said it would immediately follow, but not land on, the first full moon after the Spring Equinox, which is why the date can fall anywhere between March 22 and April 25.

Except that when one uses the designation "CE" or "BCE" one acquiesces to the politically correct, anti Christian dating method of atheists and moslems. The correct designation for Western Civilization (which despite all the efforts of the left still includes us) is BC, or Before Christ and AD or Anno Domini "In the year of Our Lord". Our calendar unlike those of the heathens is divided by this very day. Don't forget that.

Oh, and Happy Easter on this day in 2018, AD!

I think this is the second time you caught the CE designation and I believe both were on a Did You Know facts graphic. Leftists are infecting every aspect of western civilization.
