Back in the day there was an official Nazarene Sunday School lesson in which words like Jiminy Cricket were taught as the equivelent of cuss words. I thought it was kind of silly even back then and glossed over the lesson when I was Sunday School teacher in the Nazarene Church. When I was first married I used the word "pooh" several times and my husband would make fun of me. That was pretty much the extent of my swearing. I am bothered by the amount of hard core cussing people use now days without thinking twice about it.
Definitely, Glenda. Reading this, what came to mind is how it is there, but sometimes abbreviated. For instance, read where some older person was told by their young relative, when the older one got onto facebook and asked what "wtf" meant, that it meant "welcome to facebook." Yeah, right ... should be that, but isn't. Anyway, that also reminded me of how I have seen a lot of that abbrev there by a 20-yo niece.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us wthout end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
