Comment: "Profane" is an interesting and educational word

"Profane" is an interesting and educational word

#1) "No profane, disrespectful or divisive language"


1.characterized by irreverence or contempt for God or sacred principles or things; irreligious.
2.not devoted to holy or religious purposes; unconsecrated; secular (opposed to sacred).
3.unholy; heathen; pagan: profane rites.
4.not initiated into religious rites or mysteries, as persons.
5.common or vulgar.

Being common and vulgar; reveling in our common nature is what profane people do.

Is it common and vulgar to address the issue? Is it disrespectful to confront a profane persons methodology? Divisive? There is a paradox here, and the last thing I want is to divide people. They divide themselves through profanity, through common and vulgar behavior, and I find it profane to try and exalt oneself above others; disrespectful.
