“Let’s stamp out cussing!”
That’s what the inhabitants of Middleborough, Massachusetts said last month when they voted to institute a $20 fine for cussing in public. This is no “one stoplight” town–Middleborough has a population of 23,000.
There are many reasons for folks having reached their limits of tolerance. One includes that of the business owner quoted as saying that the language by young people was harassing her customers. Take note, this is the secular Northeast we are talking about, not the "Bible Belt."
All of this indicates to me that God knew what he was talking about when gave us the third commandment.
