Oxford U. Press Does Its Part to Miseducate Children

Oxford University Press has released a new edition of its Junior Dictionary. And it’s quite clear they have joined efforts to rid English children of pernicious Christian heritage and to make them less, well, English.

Gone are such basic words as bishop, chapel, monk, sin (Mustn’t have children think that exists.), monarch, carol (Mustn’t have them think Christmas is real either.), and much, much more.

These are replaced by such words as chatroom, tolerant (of course), interdependent, EU (snicker), cope (double snicker), and trapezium.

I could give a good rant about this, but I’ll defer to Cranmer, who is incandescent.
