Thought for January 5, 2015: Profanity

Let’s Get Profanity Out of Our Society

Under certain circumstances, urgent circumstances, desperate circumstances, profanity provides a relief denied even to prayer.

I had three rules for my players: No profanity. Don’t criticize a teammate. Never be late.

Dollywood is a family park, and all families are welcome. We do have a policy about profanity or controversial messages on clothing or signs. It is to protect the individual wearing or carrying them, as well as to keep down fights or problems by those opposed to it at the park.
Dolly Parton

I think that profanity is for those who can’t speak their native tongue, those who don’t know the use of words because they don’t know the words. Showing complete disrespect for their fellow man, they cuss like mule drivers.

I would say that profanity has no place in our society but it is there. There is hardly a place where it doesn’t exist. The business world is full of it and employees with tender ears have to put up with calloused bosses who care nothing for their feelings.

People in the workplace put up with profanity because they think they have to. They might get fired or demoted or passed over for promotion.

The Children

Children learned profanity at a very early age. I’m 83 years old but I still know nasty words in Spanish that were placed there when I was just a kid.

Profanity is very difficult to stop. As mature adults, we should try to avoid it if for no other reason thanto protect our children.
