This is not a debate about God, religion, atheism or anything like that. All it is about is, do you think that the word God should be censored

I was playing Madden this morning, and I noticed in the KSE song Reckoning, the word God is censored, then I noticed that in shows and movies on TV they say beep damn and beep damnit.
If words are going to be censored, and you have to pick the right ones (I'm saying this because I know somebody is going to say censorship is stupid, and yeah it is, but it's around, and it won't be gone for a while) would you pick the word God as one of those?

Censorship in all forms is evil.
Any spelling or grammatical errors written above are because of my inferior brain to yours. Good job, you won life.

Are you sure it was the word god that was censored? And not like... ****, ****, ***, ****?

It only happens with "goddamn" or "goddamnit" because a lot of people don't like that. if they bleeped the word damn or damnit then the phrase wouldn't make any sense, so they bleep god.

The only place the word god shouldn't be allowed is in politics.

To be fair, 'god' is, and always has been, considerably more powerful and potentially offensive than 'fuck' or 'shit'.

1. No apostrophe
2. I'm guessing it would be far more offensive to monotheistic religious people if the word God is combined with cursing.

No, in Reckoning, the words are "you are no God to me" but it's "you are no blank to me" in Madden.

There should be no form of censorship ever, for anything.


In an ideal world, anyway.

In the context of that KSE song, I don't think it could be considered offensive.

TV censors the "hole" in "asshole" too.


yeah

that one I don't get

and how the word "God" is used could be offensive to those who are religious. Like if it's being used "in vain"
#26
On cable television,networks can show whatever they want. Yes they can evven show some pussy. Most networks censor what they think is not suitable for the public

it's never too late to add a poll! it's at the bottom of the page here....

as per god... I went to college with a guy who was very much in God, Jesus and the Bible. He actually got offended when I'd say, "oh God." So I think it's censored to keep the people who get offended by taking the lord's name in vein. Personally I couldn't give a ****, but I'm also of a religion so few people know or understand (taoism... look it up... it's pretty sweet)

Any kind of censorship is wrong, IMO.

And "God" is a really stupid word to censor, no matter what the context.

No, just because I don't like censorship at all. Since most people do though, still no since it makes no sense as far as I know.

On topic, I think its stupid for people to censor the word God. I mean, its on our money. Are we allowed to read it, but not hear it?

In that context, it's fine to censor 'God,' since that's the more offensive part of the phrase "God damnit."
#36
Why not do the jewish thing and make it 'G-d' instead of god?


Not ment in a racist way, my actual thought is that censoring, especially now with the internet and such, is pretty pointless, even annoying.

You think YOU have it bad? In here if you write the more toned down name of God (Elohim), they get mad at you, not to mention the full name (Yehove).
