stone casting by the hypocrites
Not to , but IMO cursing is a perfect example of taking something which is cultural and making it "moral". It is immoral to cheat on your spouse. But IMO, unless you are directing the word at someone and cursing them out, it is NOT immoral to utter a word which society has decided arbitrarily is a curse word. It might be bad manners, crass, etc., but it is not a moral thing.
Now I know some might say that the f word is different, but again, it is different because we've decided as a society, for whatever reason, that some words are worse than others.
Also, he didn't even say the words. It's like calling someone an SOB without saying the words out loud. It's a much different equation, IMO. By contrast, I have read the lips of our last two head coaches and they clearly said (yelled) the word while coaching on the sidelines. ("Settle the f*&^ down!") It happens. Not their best moments perhaps, but not that big of a deal.
