That’s why I use cuss words sometimes. You need a full arsenal. You’re not going to go into war with rubber bullets, are you? – Jacob Garcia

Social customs define what’s taboo. Therefore, saying taboo language is uniformly sinful implies that our social customs uniformly align with God’s will. – Abraham Piper, http://www.twentytwowords.com

I think about these quotes every time I use the word heterodox. Most people nowadays don’t understand the weight with which I use that word–and the weight with which Christians have historically used that word. Maybe I should use a modifier when I use that word… maybe bullshit would work.
