This is funny. Who would have thought that a little apostrophe would mean the difference between proper Christianity and secular heathenry? Well, James McGrath would. He argues (satirically, of course) that using New Years Day (or, I presume, New Years’ Day) instead of New Year’s Day is a plot by pro-diversity punks to lend credence to non-Gregorian calendars. My favorite part is the line “Truly committed Christians should be listening carefully for the lack of apostrophe” — that’s brilliant.  Now I can’t wait until people realize that Mothers Day is a ploy by lesbians to convince people that having two mommies is okay.
