Quite honestly, I'm not sure. But I'm not one to take chances. Ah well! Apparently no one was offended, so I'm safe!<P><P>------------------

You do take the chance of offending someone when you do... anything, really. *sweatdrop* ...the original reference for this was my worried post about my Exorcist parody. Invoking God's name in vain and whatnot, for the sake of a few cheap yuks. I'll likely go to hell, but hey! No one complained! ^_^<P><P>------------------

Even when I TRY to offend people, I don't quite make it.
:P<P>I got positive remarks on how I handled the Gay/Straight issue in my comic. Man. Maybe I need to glorify gerbil abuse.<P>------------------

Don't worry, God called me this morning, and said he was a little more upset over the muderers, fake televangelists, and whoever hired Carson Daly to take over the Late Late show on NBC. <P>
(ok, God didn't call me...it was an e-mail; and he said his name was God, but these days it's hard to tell)<P>~dave<P>------------------

Now in each of the uses there, I think it was an acceptible use... due to the implied gravity of the situation, and possible implied afters. "Sweet mother mary (protect us)" and "Oh my god, they killed hennry" is a shortened version of the prayer "Oh my god, please don't let it be true... they killed henry". It's just how you look at it. Now if you said "God" like you said the word "Fuck"... that would be taking the lord's name in vien.<P>------------------
