Swear Words

by Mar 29, 2022GET INSPIRED

My nephew Dan and I have spent many, many years working together. I don’t even know how many years.

Dan: “I can tell you, because I did the math a little bit earlier. I’ve been producing television shows for 32 going on 33 years, and as a matter of fact, the first one I did was you and your son Troy up in Canada catching northern pike.

I was 16 years old at the time, running around in the office when my brother James told me to make myself useful and to try to edit a television show.

So he showed me how to do tape to tape, and sure enough, with a bit of tweaking, it was ready to go to air.

Next thing you know, I’m a tv producer.

Being in this business for so long, I’m very aware and sensitive to things,

I was watching this documentary, and this reporter was there, and she got startled by a snake, and she jumped back and said, “Jesus Christ.”

They left that in the video and didn’t bleep it out later in the show; they bleeped out more common swear words.

I was always raised not to blaspheme, using the Lord’s name as a swear word.”

Al: “As a person of faith, when you hear someone just the name of our Savior as a swear word — it pierces your heart.

We make a living in the fishing industry, and we are around quite a cast of characters. Some of them are a little bit rough around the edges and their vocabulary is pretty street-ish and loose. That doesn’t bother me. But….

But when somebody takes the name of the Lord in vain, it touches my heart, and I’ll say something about it.”
