The best of the web from the perspective of a Catholic mom, former atheist, and closet computer nerd.
And yet, my Oxford University diary includes the dates of "The conception of the BVM", "The conversion of St. Paul", "the visit of the BVM to Elizabeth" alongside "start of term", and "conferment of degrees"...
The article states that "multiculturalism" and the fact that fewer people now go to church are among the reasons that words associated with Christianity and British history have been dropped. Well, it seems to me that if your population consists of fewer Christians and ethically British citizens that you've got a compelling reason to include those words. Dictionaries are supposed to help you learn the meanings to words you don't know.
