Well what do you think? On the news today a town in Massachuchets said if you swear in public you get fined $20.

That's a bit over the top. I don't think it should be illigeal. I swear sometimes, but it sometimes slips out when people are angry. I personally think it's ugly, but it should'nt be illeagal.

Actually, It's against the law to swear in public. It's aggressive language, and in some cases can class as verbal assault and you can even go to jail for it. for up to 6 months in some states in Australia. Though this isn't for letting the "f" word slip in public during a casual conversation, this is for threatening or violent language. Yelling swear words at someone combined with aggressive body language should always get police attention, and continuing to do so after being told not to would get you a trip to a holding cell so you could cool off. a jail sentence would take a lot more. lol. Anyway, the mass. Law in question also isn't really for simply letting a swear word slip in casual conversation, It's for people who, In public yell across the street (eg) to each other and swear. It's because people are fed up with all the swearing (which must be rather common place there) many people are offended by the words, or simply don't want their kids to hear that kind of language.

I'm sarcastic a lot. If I offended you I probably didn't mean to. Probably.

more than one religion has not swearing as a rule.  If people yell swears in public I don't think that's ok. not only is is inconsiderate to everyone around you but many people find it offensive and children can hear it.

I'm guessing you're Christian? as Christianity was originally a sect of Judaism, as was Islam, as a rule of thumb anything in the first testament applies to Christianity/Catholicism as well as Judaism and Islam, as the first testament is  part of all those religions smile

No. They're strong expressions that are only considered bad because people think they're bad. Like all words, they have no inherent values.
