    I realize that's different from Tourette's Syndrome's coprolalia, but I think, like with my gramma, you have to realize "that's not really that person".

    but is cussing actually a sin? I can see someone being sinful AND cussing, maybe being mean to someone while tossing out cussing and other abuse at them. But what about just using swear words as exclamations? (not taking God in vain ones)

    It's hard for me to get past how lame that translation sounds.

    Ephesians 5:3-13

    But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
    . . . .
    And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.


    If you read the whole chapter, in context it's saying that we shouldn't talk about sexual sins in an approving way, or even in a joking way or neutral way. Instead, we should only talk about them in a condemning way.

    Yes, and sin in general.

    I think it is talking about the content of your words more than the words. But yes it does include swear words. It is a guideline on how to behave but it doesn't say it is a sin. It is like saying "always wash your hands before eating" - it is a good rule to follow but that doesn't make not washing your hands before eating a sin.

    If I'm remembering right "bloody" is pretty close to the f-word is here when it comes to being offensive over in Europe.

    Yeah, it was explained to me that it was a hateful slur against the blood of Christ. Never really tried to prove that, but that's what I was told.

    Further, it was explained that the "bloody mary" drink was pretty much the ultimate in insult to Mary.

    According to Oxford Dictionary that is a mistaken belief about it.

    Source: Oxford Dictionary

    Origin
    Mid 17th century: from bloody. The use of bloody to add emphasis to an expression is of uncertain origin, but is thought to have a connection with the ‘bloods’ (aristocratic rowdies) of the late 17th and early 18th centuries; hence the phrase bloody drunk (= as drunk as a blood) meant ‘very drunk indeed’. After the mid 18th century until quite recently bloody used as a swear word was regarded as unprintable, probably from the mistaken belief that it implied a blasphemous reference to the blood of Christ, or that the word was an alteration of ‘by Our Lady’; hence a widespread caution in using the term even in phrases, such as bloody battle, merely referring to bloodshed.

    I henceforth declare that "Fligurring" is the absolutely worst and most vulgar word in the English language.


    It means "To Fligur"
