evil I tell ya........... I'm just evil I guess.

I have sometimes forgotten how offended some people get when you use god's name in vain. It gets ridiculous, like one time around a group of friends, I said something to the effect of "God damned, motherfucking, shitstained fucktard"... and got scolded for saying "god".


Wut? Really? Strings of obscenities come out of my mouth at any random moment, but the one that really gets to you is how I used 'god'. Yeah, makes perfect sense.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

Hmm, well I grew up as a nonbeliever and honestly I use whatever the hell language I want.

This includes "Oh goodness", "Oh my god", "God damnit", "Thank goodness", "Holy moly", "Holy shizzles", "Goodness Gracious", "gosh" ...and many more! I even used to say stuff like "What the dickens!" and I know I used to incorporate beelzebub in a saying somehow..

Don't stress about it, just be natural. Why does it matter what phrases you use? Everybody has their quirks!

Oh and I definitely still, and always will, celebrate the wonderful holiday of Christmas Thumbsup

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

Heh. To a Catholic, it would actually be accurate if you switched it to "Christ-as-a-cracker". As an ex-Lutheran, I could say that it should have been "Christ-represented-as-a-cracker".

My friend has an ex-wife like this. She swears a lot, and I'm reasonably certain that she takes God's name in vain (on accident, of course). If I do it, I get yelled at. Nevermind she's had one or more abortions, which are murder in her world-view. Still, it's way worse to hurt God's feelings than to kill someone (according to her world-view).

She's also a pathological liar and a sociopath, so there's a better-than-even chance that her getting mad at me is more of a calculated act than anything else.

As a non-believer, I find myself still using such phrases, but I'm becoming much more conscious about it. I now try to avoid using them, not because of the taking god's name in vein part, but because I'd rather just eliminate all references to the imaginary one during normal, day-to-day conversation.

A friend texted me good news and my natural response was to say "oh thank god!."

I'm 29, so I don't feel comfortable saying "oh thank goodness!" It's what my late grandmother used to say.

Am I over-thinking or does anyone have their own way of getting around it?

I do still say OMG (and I was picked on mercilessly by certain members of the forum on Skype Tongue). I do like thank goodness, since I do believe goodness should always be thanked. Smile

I used to care about that stuff, now I don't give a shit. It's just a bunch of expressions that snuck into everyday language and it doesn't mean anything.

I'll be damned if I bite my tongue off to avoid this stuff. Tongue

Flagrant hypocrisy coming from a believer? Say it ain't so!
