Frequently Asked Questions
Why is it wrong to call someone either a bitch or a jack ass? Why are the names of animals used in slang, frustration, or anger considered profanity?
Well, it's profane to say God d*** because God is not a damner.
Christ is the Saviour, or in the Greek text the "Restorer" of all of
creation. And though His remoulding process often involves fire, water,
and shaking, His goal is love and kindness forevermore. In like manner,
when it comes to using animal's names in vain, (or profanely,) it's
profane to use the names of animals in anger, because 99.99% of the
time, when you're calling someone a bitch or an ass, they are not
behaving with the character of a bitch or an ass. People usually think
of a donkey or of a favorite female dog in a more favorable light.
Animals are generally more intelligent and more sensitive than the kinds
of people that people that are often in anger are using their names in
association with. So, it's a "profanity" because it's denying the
dignity of animals that God gave them. To recognize the dignity that God
intended for animals is not inherently to place them on a level with
human beings. It's to simply give them the place that God intended for
them, and that God now intends for them under this greater covenant of
blessings promised to them in the Hosea 2:18 and Jeremiah 31:27-28
covenant. It's just another form of speciesism, that's a cousin of any
of the "N" words that have been used against those of African descent.
It's derogatory and it's profane from the nature of it's
presumptuousness and mean spiritedness.
