Give me a C....no....a c

No more "Christ" with a capital C in the Netherlands

Brussels, Oct. 19, 2005 (CNA) - According to a new grammar rule in the Netherlands and Belgium, the name "Christ" will soon be written with a lower-case "c", as stipulated by an orthography reform published last Friday.
According to the Kath.net agency, the new spelling rules also will stipulate that the Dutch word for "jews" (joden) be spelled with a capital "J" when referring to nationality and with a lower-case "j" when referring to the religion. The changes will be mandatory starting in August 2006.

I wonder if such rules were written and/or sponsored by Jews in those two countries.

That was humor, right? If so, really bad...not funny. If not, really sad.

Considering Catholic News Agency is the source, I highly doubt it was humor, nor did Nick intend it to be.
