    Absolutely.

    Nothing against a healthy slice of industrial language though, IMO. 🙂

    Words determine the course of history. A word can lead to death or salvation. They are not magic, because the power they convey is real.

    I think the taboo of "strong language" arose from the civilizing process. Certain manners of speech became associated with a lower class. In an attempt to differentiate themselves from these lesser people, the hegemons placed strict rules upon what qualified as civil speech. In this way, entrance into this upper echelon required, among other things, a discipline of speech.

    I was going to say the same thing, but in a post 10 times as long with citations from literature,
    sociology, and anthropology, with footnotes and a bibliography.

    Thanks telerion for saying what I was going to say more succintly.

    For example: My mother and father will not be saved.

    These are hurtful words, just as an example.

    I have also heard it said that a lot of "swear words" were the result of conquests and the belittling (cannot think of a better word right now) of the local language.

    For example, the English words below have been "replaced" by the French

    cow -> beef
    sh1t -> excrement

    I see what you mean, I loved my grandma more then anything and I know for possibility taht she is probably not in the Lords presence which is very sad. But my parents are still alive and have a chance to accept Christ.

    Relax, bro. The world's fine. Sure, there's a hell of alot of sadness in the world. But there's also alot of joy here. You're missing out on life worrying so much. Smell the roses, get a girlfriend, fall in love, miss her when you go away, have kids, love & raise them well. That's all you ...[text shortened]... an conform to your religious beliefs and still have a better time down here than you're having.
    I never said I was sad. Nemosissy did.

    I am filled with JOY because that is what being a Christian is all about. And I know I am Blessed.

    Even the Lord Jesus joked. Such is happiness.
