i often get amusement from hipper vigilant Christians when the almost drip dead when they here the word fuck but will say fudge or fanny god is substituted for gosh so cursing is ok as long as you talk like a child? are you not still intending to curse if you say something like fudge? i just find this a very funny and immature that the religionists do this silly game of trying to out wit god with word play. comments ?

 In Marine boot keep believe it or not its against the rules for DIs to use profanity. I was disappointed thinking I would never get hear the scorching, poetic ass chewings ala FullMetalJacket that DIs were famous for. Little did I know that gosh, doggone, dang friggin,freakin,fraggin, heck, and darn could  become so vicious!  Once out of earshot however of civilians, and public image concious officers our DIs would let fly about what worthless pieces of fuckin grabasstic amphibian shits we were!!

  Fear of dirty words I personally find pathetic. Fuck is my favorite word and I use it whenever possible. And i do admit the guilty pleasure of occassionly offending the desert thesits with its use.

My fundie neighbor who lives RIGHT next-door has often heard me swear during the summer months when windows are open, or I'm on the patio.  I don't purposely do it so she can hear it, but one day when we were talking she made-up a story about someone at her work that swears, etc. and how they shouldn't, etc.  Long-story short it was all to tell me about how I shouldn't swear! lol.  I am 44 and she is 62.  I don't need a lecture.  She was so obvious.  I know she's hear discussions I've had with my Mom re-us being Atheists.  She's also made comments about how She is going to 'heaven', etc.  Whatever.  They are good neighbors.  Dumb as a box of rocks, but really good neighbors.

One of my fundie coworkers constantly says 'freakin'. It's freakin this and freakin that. I ask her why she doesn't just say what she means, and she insists she doesn't mean 'that nasty word'. It's pretty freakin awesome.

Sometimes the substitute words can at least be funny and creative (like Wanderer's examples), but then variations on curse words can be too. Curse words aren't even the most taboo words anymore. The real taboo words are racial slurs and the like.

I agree, it does seam odd that they believe the curse is encapsulated in curtain words instead of the intent of the person speaking.

I love watching SpongeBob for this wordplay with substituting child-curses for regular ones. Tartar sauce! Fish paste! Dirty barnacles! There was even a whole episode devoted to the discovery of a "bad word" (presumably fuck) which then becomes incorporated into every sentence. "Hey, nice fucking day, isn't it? Oh yes, today is one particularly fucking beautiful day". Ahh, where would I be without SpongeBob?
