Profanity or Hannity

The Blog-O-Cuss Meter - Do you cuss a lot in your blog or website?
Created by OnePlusYou

It is monday after work, and slack rules. What energy I had is long gone.
I started a nifty post about Truman Capote at lunch, but don’t feel like finishing it.
Not to worry, Renegade Evolution has the answer. She displayed something called the blog&website Cuss-o-meter. Ren copped a 34.5% rating, which is not surprising for a sex worker.
Holy Cow, I got a 0% rating. Dad Gum, by Jingoes.Gee.
The first question to arise is, what do they call cussing? The seven words of Carlin? Anything referring to excretion, reproduction, or the eternal destination of your soul?
The funny thing is, I am not terribly offended by most profanity. I try not to use it, because it takes attention away from your overall message.
Profanity is a social issue rather than a moral one. Certain words are not right or wrong, but when you use one inappropriately you betray a lack of respect for the listeners.
There are words that offend me…like Jesus…that many see as their moral duty to say as often as possible. And this eagerness to profane a sacred name is a violation of the third commandment. ( That is, the eagerness of Jesus Worshipers to scream his name as often and loudly as possible).
It is a matter of perception. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but ugly uses all five senses.
