I was just wondering what the general consensus was on being a good Catholic and using words that some people consider offensive (of course, I’m only Catholic-at-heart right now; I’m a practicing Anglican). Words like, a**, s***, bulls***, hell, damn, and other such words I sometimes use, and I didn’t really know that some people consider these offensive 'til recently. I would never say words like f*** or G**damn, or anything sexually-vulgar or blasphemous like that. I was wondering, where are we supposed to draw the line?
Also, although I never use such words as described above… I do sometimes listen to music with such words . Don’t get me wrong, I always look for the clean version of the song, but several CD’s I own are not clean, and I don’t know where to get clean versions. I never play them when anyone else is in the car with me, because I don’t want to cause scandal or occasion of sin…
I hope this isn’t the wrong forum.
What are your thoughts?
