Another example of our cultural implosion is the decision of New Haven high schools to offer diplomas without the phrase “in the year of our Lord.” Bill Donohue offered this thoughts on the matter as follows:

“The United States was founded by Christians, and approximately 80 percent of Americans remain Christian today. It only makes sense, then, to recognize our heritage in our customs and traditions. What this New Haven school is doing is more than a detour from our moorings, it is unconscionable: attempts to scrub clean any reference to our founding is a disservice to the students and their community. And to base this decision, in part, on the need not to “offend anyone,” is disingenuous–it offends beyond belief the vast majority of Americans. This is political correctness gone mad.”
