Christian leaders criticized the decision
The London School of Economics will remove Christian terminology from its academic calendar starting in the next school year to be more inclusive.
Traditionally the college used Christian words such as Lent, Easter break and Michaelmas in its calendar.
Michaelmas is a feast day named for St. Michael the Archangel.
Now the university will use names like “winter” and “autumn” and “spring.”
LSE is whitewashing Christ from the calendar.
Sam Smith is trending for normalising debauchery and degeneracy.
Police officers are prancing around with rainbow flags and glitter again.
We truly live in a post-Christian Britain and it is ugly.

LSE said, according to The Telegraph, that “these new names use more accessible and widely-recognised terminology, and better reflect the international nature of our community and our broader global engagement.”
Christian leaders criticized the decision.
“We have been warning for years that Christians are being pushed from the public square, yet the problem is getting worse,” Simon Calvert of The Christian Institute, told the Telegraph.
He said further:
Christians and those with traditional views often find themselves silenced or bullied. It’s particularly ironic when this happens at institutions that were originally founded on Christian principles and with endowments from Christian benefactors.
So, this ludicrous decision by the LSE to rebrand traditional academic terms, by scrapping references to the calendar of the established Church, is more virtue-signalling nonsense that creates exclusion in the name of inclusivity.
“LSE is whitewashing Christ from the calendar,” Calvin Robinson, a deacon in the Free Church of England, wrote on Twitter. “The fall of Britain,” the black deacon wrote in response to the story as well.
