Not long ago, a good friend of mine was ranting about some software not working correctly, and it reminded me of a line from “A Christmas Story”:

“My father wove a tapestry of profanity which to this day is still hovering somewhere over Lake Michigan.”

This, in turn, reminded me of a quote by Mark Twain:

“Under certain circumstances, profanity provides a relief denied even to prayer.”

As a Christian, I’m acutely aware of my language, whether it’s around the house or out in public. Sometimes though, my tendency towards being a profanity-Nazi makes me stop and consider the definition of profanity, and my biases against it.
