Cursing is offensive

Email

In reply to the article "Bombarded by the 'F-Bomb,'" there is no such word in the Webster dictionary. Fu*# in China means chief city; Fu*# in Scotland means full.

The reason the word has power is it is associated with people who are out of control or having a tantrum. On the other hand, God means maker or ruler of universe, supreme being.

I am very offended with "Oh My God." We hear it taken lightly in laughter and jest and accepted. This is cursing and blasphemy.

Do not take the Lord your God's name in vain. Exodus 20:7; Lev. 19:12; Deut. 6:13.
