Not just the Godless Left. Devout Jews also use the BCE denomination, no matter their religious persuasion. I am glad this was referenced. I prefer the code of Julian, but this goes back about 1100 years before him.

The code of Julian was written for the Roman Provences. It was, to my belief, the first legal code which broke the law into organized segments (Titles) and is such the foundation of our common law, based as it is on English common law.

I doubt it. Orthodox Jews use the Jewish calendar with Jewish years.

On the other hand, there are no doubt many liberal Jews who will gladly sign on to BCE and CE designations.
