Entirely out of place is obscene,
profane, and vulgar talk.
On January 16, 2003, two-time Emmy winner Patricia Heaton, disgusted by what she described as “an onslaught of lewd jokes and off-color remarks,” walked out of the Annual American Music Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. She said the raw and raunchy comments by presenters and performers were “an affront to anyone with a shred of dignity and self-respect.” She was scheduled to make a presentation but just thought, “I’m not going to be part of this.”
Much of the language in movies and media is, to borrow Heaton’s words, “an affront to anyone with a shred of dignity and self-respect.”
Especially obnoxious are foul-mouthed politicians.
“Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up . . . that it may give grace to those who hear” (Eph 4:29).
Profanity is the crutch
of conversational cripples.
