Writer says leave Christ out of it
I’m still in a state of shock and bewilderment as to why our news media, i.e. NTV and CBC, would bleep out the F word, which they do, and not the misuse of the name of Jesus.
I’ve written the television news media regarding this. I’m sure you and the public know I’m referring to the latest news item with the Horlick family of Shea Heights, St. John’s, which has now gone worldwide.
The F word was not used in this instance, but the Holy name of Jesus was, and in a most rude and blasphemous manner.
Then to add insult to injury the lady and her son intimated this is a common Newfoundland catch phrase. Laughter ensued.
I don’t know where she grew up, but this was never part of any Newfoundlanders vocabulary that I’ve ever known.
What a terrible, negative and deplorable perception to give the world of our fair province. A place I may add that has a Bible, Matthew 6:33, on its coat of arms.
Come on fellow Christians, speak up.
If it’s offended one, it’s offended all, the body of Christ.
