And old adage goes as follows, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say it at all.” I find many have forgotten this saying as profanity is commonplace here in this establishment of higher learner I attend.
As a person who enjoys languages and adores her first language especially, being an environment that seems to constantly have people using expletives is highly annoying. Seeing as I am a Christian I follow the commandment that I have to be “salt and light” in this world with my speech. Also I’m called to glorify the Lord with my speech. I’m not perfect, and I say stupid things, but with something as obviously inappropriate as using profane language its proficiency is disgusting.
When did this habit start? In bygone days people typically didn’t use strong expletives unless they were with close friends or family, so how come it’s become so public that individuals will wear paraphernalia that reads “F--- Off”.
Another characteristic of fallen man I suppose.
I want to lift them up.
