Swearing in Fiction, Part 1

So we’ve defined swearing (crude and offensive language and/or action which often insults God and/or the recipient thereof) and scrutinized it through the lens of Scripture, especially Philippians 4:8. From that we discovered there is very little justification for swearing.

Nonetheless, swearing is part of the real world. Since fiction reflects reality, it would make sense there would be times and places for swearing.

So before we delve into movie clips for analysis, what do you think? What might be appropriate uses of obscenities, cursing, epithets, and the other language I’ve placed under the umbrella of swearing?
