Why do people use Jesus Christ's name as an expletive or God's name in vain?
Ignorance, a false sense of liberation and laziness.
Try going to the East and screaming out *Allah* as an curse see how long you keep your head.
People die for what they believe in - accept here in the West.
It goes to show how in the USA most think using Jesus Christ's/God’s name in vain proves how liberated and free thinking they are when it only goes
to prove how ignorant.
Like here on ATS - we ban slang words for parts of our anatomy but the owners wont take a stand on the issue of the *god damn* (sorry) word, or the
use of Jesus Christ in a form of curse.
People die for their belief systems all over the world - here in the USA and most English speaking countries we wallow in our *right* to *bleep* on
On ATS the owners demand we show common courtesy over not using the word for human excrement in baser terms but has no problem at all in putting aside
respect for their ‘fellow man’ in flinging human excrement all over their belief in God in allowing the use of the *GD/JC* word...
Deny ignorance? Yeah right.
Hey, you don’t want to believe in God/Christ - your loss (IMO) but why should you be allowed to curse mine?
Like I said, try it in the East, lol - you wouldn’t dare.
Maybe using His name in such a way started out as some kind of pleas for help or guidance?
When people were confronted with something horrific they yelled out Jesus Christ - in a form of a prayer maybe? Now it's turned into a curse, I'm
sorry to say...
