By Fr. William Redmon
In a world full of “gentlemen’s clubs,” “strong language,” and “mature programming,” it seems we may have stretched linguistic elasticity close to the breaking point. Yet we would do well to remember that it is not the safety of our language that we hazard when we act so; rather it is our own. For in seeking to distort our language thus, we allow her to act as the vehicle through which the fallen world may broadcast its message.
