Fuller student Adam Mellem just told me I can upload his paper on A Theology of Profanity [PDF], a paper drawing on many sources including my little blog post called Offensive language: I think my mother taught me.
Related: Al Mohler’s Stand on Emergent Profanity by Mark Van Steenvyk, currently circling the blogosphere, is SATIRE. Adam did not quote it, obviously, but if you quote it in an academic paper then you will get points deducted. Especially if you attend Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. But Fuller’s Barry Taylor will probably give you top marks. Hi Barry!
