There are no "bad words", only bad intent. Just like there are no "bad guns", just bad intent.
Are your ears on fire?
By the way, using Jesus name in vain was meant for the people who always say "In the name of Jesus". They think they are being religiously pious the more they do it. That is the vanity. Another backwards paradigm bench mark.
Unless it's not vanity, but an expression of faith by those with much of it.

It seems to be that you have it backwards. America is still a pretty much God-fearin', church going country, and I think this 'censorship' is not PC, rather it is cutting the use of the Lord's name in vain, as it were. Some stations require such for their market audiences, and cuts are made accordingly. Now I'd be cussing up a storm if they tried that with my HBO...but I believe that folks should have some assurance that if they tune in to a particular show or station, they should not have their sensibilities offended.

I don't think if it was Jesus she said, that she was using His name in vain. I also thought that rule only referred to God, not Jesus. The cuss words would be doing that, but not saying a silent prayer.
Do you have a video clip of this we might watch?
People say Jesus on TV all the time. I've never seen it censored.
However I do see God and Jesus being phased out, like with Christmas being taken out of the stores at Christmas time and greeting cards not mentioning Christ.

They won't censor Jesus as a swear word, just as a reference to him as a spiritual being of significance to people.
Swear away, it won't be censored.
Everyone is assuming that she must have been censored because she was "using God's name in vain", when in actuality, it's because she wasn't
(It's Easter tomorrow after all...)
edit: to anyone who thinks this isn't the case. you only have to look at a show like South Park. If this were really about holding the name of Jesus in some kind of reverence then you wouldn't have a show like South Park where Jesus is portrayed in all manner of ridiculous, denigrating, and insulting ways.

Even Christians that pray in Jesus name are forbid to use it in their own prayers for fear of insulting others. So much for freedom of religion..

Doesn't matter what logical explanation is given...it seems the OP and others in this thread are hell bent on wanting to feel persecuted.
So go ahead...it's a Christian tradition.
