Magis Center: John Clark: Blasphemy Hurts Christians (17 AUG 21) .
News and notes from Tom Lopatosky on a variety of subjects including religion (especially Roman Catholicism); inspiration; New England; fire, rescue, and emergency medical services; and municipal government issues.
"Most Americans can tell you what blasphemy
is. Their definitions may lack precision, but they likely achieve a
level of accuracy. And why wouldn't they be able to? After all, in
movies and shows and novels, the blasphemy of using God's name in vain
surrounds Americans. What most Americans may not know is that blasphemy offends Christians. They may not know that it hurts Christians."
