Jesus Christ are you ever 100% correct on that one. There is NO word which is inherently bad, including so-called ethnic "slurs". It is entirely in the spirit in which something is said. If I pointed at you and angrily said "You're just a grapefruit! Who cares what a grapefruit has to say?" that doesn't suddenly mean anyone in their right mind should start referring to grapefruit as the "G-word".
People are far too sensitive. Furthermore, for a supposedly selfish, self centered, me-first society we sure do have a lot of fools out there who trip all over themselves trying to show how sensitive they are by not even thinking one of the "banned words", let alone speaking one of them. Try living for one full day without a governor on your brain and mouth... it's actually pretty damn liberating and by taking all the power out of the supposed BAD WORDS, you find them to be just what they are... words. Nothing more, nothing less.

And, you better watch it. You said the J-word. They might be coming for you. *cue scary music*
"I have come in my Father's name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him." John 5:43
I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Rev. 2:9
Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Rev. 3:9
"He exposed the synagogue of Satan (Rev. 2:9; 3:9) he denounced those who belonged to it as sons of the devil (Lucifer), whom he castigated as the father of lies (John 8:44) and the prince of deceit (2 Cor. 11:14). He was specific in his statement that those who comprised the synagogue of Satan were those who called themselves Jews, but were not, and did lie (Rev. 2:9; 3:9). He identified the Money-Changers (Bankers) the Scribes, and the Pharisees as the Illuminati of his day.
One group and one group alone is responsible for virtually all wars and bloodshed on the face of this planet. The Synagogue of Satan

The earliest icons of "J" were the shepherd and he was depicted as a beardless youth. I'll agree with the man part mostly.

I should have foreseen this coming, but it really floored me. I guess I should be used to getting blindsided like this.
Last night I happened to tune into "Hell's Kitchen" (aptly named after what I saw) and caught the end of it. I usually don't like watching that show because it gets me stressed to watch Chief Ramses being so abusive to the contestants, every other word he uses is censored because he is swearing at everyone constantly.
Well, they pulled one woman off the show and then had another woman, who was nearly booted, make a statement. She said that she really dodged a bullet in that round and then she looked up and said, "Thank you Baby (censor beep)."
I can usually fill the blank pretty easy with a swear word, as the censors are sure to give you the sound of the first letter of the censored word, but this word was completely censored. Can anyone guess what the offensive word was that the producers censored? How soon before it is bad language to say the "J" word in public?
OK, it was a personal decision by the network or the show's producers to censor such a controversial word, but I suspect that this is a rising trend here in the U.S. if they are willing to censor it, certainly one I never expected.
I have to say this, as a personal and public statement, "Jesus" is not a bad word!
Leave it to the media to spearhead such an agenda as making something good evil and evil good.
Watch out people, very soon you will be unable to say the "J" word in public anymore.
