Profane? – JAM

The first week in March (2010) was “cuss free week” in California. The resolution was inspired by Pasadena teenager McKay Hatch, who started a No Cussing Club while in junior high school in 2007. Now there are similar clubs in nearly every state and in twenty nations. Hatch explains, “Cussing is a hard habit to break but anyone can do it.” Few of those who engage in obscenities realize how boorish their behavior is. Nor do they realize that their blasphemies include breaking one of the Ten Commandments: “thou shalt not take the name of thy God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain.” But ignorance does not excuse crudeness.
