    Congratulations Anna of Panama City. Your check is on the way!


    WINNING ANSWER: In the distant past, the phrase “pardon my French” was used by English speakers who included French words and phrases in their conversation. In more modern times, the phrase is used by speakers to precede profanity or extreme crudeness, not French words or phrases. Although the phrase is an immediate alert for what is about to be said, it does not excuse vulgarity or profanity despite what some might think.

      I think a Christian’s language does more to help or hurt his or her witness than just about anything thing else. Believe it or not, we had a older Sunday School teacher at our church that would say “pardon my French,” and then next thing out of his mouth was the “GD” word. I never respected him again.
