A reader named Jim asks,
"why is it wrong to swear, according to you? taking out religious reasons"

It's not wrong to swear, it's perfectly fine and normal and good, all parents teach their kids to swear, every child when it's born, the parents hold it in their arms and says, "Oh I love you so much my darling baby I so hope you grow up and cuss like a sailor."

I find it interesting that you post this little exchange to your blog, yet you didn't even provide an actual answer to the person who asked you a legitimate question. Why not give them an actual answer as to why you think what you do? They asked in a polite way, yet you just mock them with a sarcastic and dismissive response?

If your opinions can't even hold up to basic questioning, how are you comfortable holding and evangelizing them? That doesn't make sense to me. If you're confident enough in your opinions that you tell others they should listen to you, then you should be confident enough to explain the reasons why.

Can you please elaborate in a non-sarcastic way, why you think it's wrong to swear? Thanks, have a nice night.

Oh for heaven's sake. You know why it's wrong, crude, offensive, impolite and immoral to use profanity.

I do not think that's it is offensive, wrong or immoral to use profanity! I don't think that at all, and I certainly don't "know" that.

I do think it could be considered crude, or impolite in some certain contexts, but the same could be said for many things that are perfectly OK at other times.

Besides, I want to know why you personally think it's so wrong. So, why do you think it is wrong, crude, offensive, impolite and immoral to swear? This seems to be a belief you hold strongly ... So I'm sure you must have reasons to believe this. I'd like to hear them as I'm curious.
