Blasphemy

I WAS shocked to read "Sally's" letter in the Reporter, not about the smell she is complaining about (I personally have never noticed this but a friend has said that she has) but the language used in the letter, which was disgusting.

Even putting asterisks in to hide the letters in a word, it was obvious what that word is meant to be a swear word, but even worse were the two instances of blasphemy (taking the name of the Lord in vain).

These were unnecessary and offensive to the many Christians that live or work in Saffron Walden.

I object most strongly to the use of blasphemy in a family newspaper. It is bad enough having it in numerous television programmes and magazines, but I had hoped that the local newspaper would be a bit more sensitive with regard to its readers.

Please ensure this kind of language is not used again.
