HUH, Did I read and understand that right , you would not use AD or BC because you want to be PC about it to Jewish people.

I’ts been like this for how many years, , and what caledner do we use in the west again and I;ve not met one Jew yet who has been offended by using AD or BC and if they ever did then they need to get a life and understand how the calendar works.?

.
I frigging hate PC and those who use it especially over this

Close, but not quite.

If I were invited to speak at a synagogue about why evangelical Christians need to work with Jewish people to support Israel, I'm not going to deliberately offend my hosts by using “AD” and “BC.” (Of course, if the Rabbi or synagogue lay leaders say they aren't offended, that's a whole different ball game.)

It's the same reason that, if I were invited to speak at a Roman Catholic parish about why evangelical Christians need to work with Roman Catholics to fight abortion, I'm not going to deliberately offend my hosts by talking about my objections to the Mass or to the authority of the Pope.

My experience had been that it's the liberals who scream and yell about these things, not conservative Jewish people. Most politically conservative Jewish people don't object to Christians acting like Christians in public life. If someone has a track record of not being anti-Semitic and/or supporting Israel, minor things get viewed for what they are — minor things.

But if I accept an invitation into a synagogue or into a Jewish home, I need to be respectful to my hosts and follow their expectations.

If I can't do that in good conscience, I shouldn't accept the invitation. Rudeness harms my witness.
