Ever since I stopped

December 9, 2008

Ever since I stopped believing in a god, I’ve said “fuck” a lot more. It’s usually been in private, or in my head. The other day I mentioned this to some friends, and they asked why I say it more now.

“Because nobody’s watching me anymore, so I can say whatever the fuck I want!”

It’s awesome.


My new favorite swear

“Jesus Christ on a bike!”

The only negative thing about that is: it might be a little bit too awesome.

And putting aside the whole issue of whether Jesus is Lord or not, can this technically be considered “taking the Lord’s name in vain” when you’re referring to an event the Lord is participating in rather than the person himself?  What does “in vain” mean, anyways?  Is it possible for Jesus to ride a bike in vain?  Please advise.
