A Theology of Profanity, by Adam Mellem

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!


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
