Semantics. 

RAGEFUCK POST RATING: 3

I've decided, in light of recent events, to stop saying "Jesus!," or its variation, "Jesus Christ!," or any variation with a middle word (i.e. "Jesus Tapdancing Christ!") to express displeasure or surprise.

As we all know, words are concrete, static things whose meaning does not change with usage by various age groups, genders, races, sexual preferences, and soda preferences. Their usage also does not change or drastically alter over relatively short periods of time. A particular word or phrase always means what it's always meant. Words are also never used ironically or for the sake of deflation of said word's importance. It is a sober place, the English language, and no variation or deviation exists. Language does not evolve or mutate.

We know all this to be absolute, undeniable truth.

I will therefore stop using the Lord and Savior's name in vain to express the aforementioned displeasure or surprise, because it is an obvious taint on the Christ Jesus. I am obviously associating the Christ -- and by extension the Church, in all its various forms, as well as all organized religion beyond it -- with mild frustration, and that simply cannot stand. It's disrespectful, blasphemous, insensitive, and I would even go so far as to hypocritically (and rather blandly) call myself a fucking cumsmear if I ever did it again.

Now that that's settled, let's get back to the important topics, like why Hal Jordan R0X0RS.

You fucking idiots.
