Stephen Fry on Swearing

Speaking of which, it’s not just Christian prudes who object to swearing. It’s also atheists and skeptics who think swearing denotes a lack of intelligence. I still can recall the insulting manner one atheist had when emailing me who was surprised I had some competence with the English language because I had used the word “bullshit” in a cartoon. He was part of an organization trying to fund a charter school for humanist leaning students and I asked him how he planned to teach literature to these students without involving swearing or innuendo? I never got an answer…the pompous prick.
