Letter To The Journal News Editor
Profanity sends wrong message
In the June 26 edition of The Journal News, a letter-writer expressed his sadness at the passing of George Carlin. In his letter, he also mentioned Richard Pryor, Red Foxx, George Kirby, etc., as people he had found to be in the same class as Carlin.I'm a firm believer in free speech, and I subscribe to the Bible verse that says, "Let the one without sin, cast the first stone." I do wonder, though, at the validity of obscenities to prove a point. I have been blessed with five grown children and seven grandchildren. How could I express to them the hypocrisies in this world by using swear words and other uses of profanity? Satire is one thing, but spouting profanities to prove a point is not what I would want to convey to my family members .
The world that we live in is a gift from God; the same God who looks upon us with love untold. I offer my condolences to Mr. Carlin's family and friends. May his passing cause us concern about the anger throughout our world, and the obvious hypocrisies that exist when proving a point.
