CAMP GROUND BAPTIST CHURCH LORAN BUMPUS. Pastor VERBAL BARBARISM BY RALPH W. IX)EW. D.D. Newspaper Enterprise Assn. A recent performance of Albee's play "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" presented a dramatic example of the use of profanity and obscenity to reveal a situation. No one could sec the play without becoming involved. The characters are memorable for their obvious emptiness Here Is a revelation of life as a tragic farce. It is also obvious that after the first act the profanity becomes meaningless, the obscenities repetitive and the lewd gestures merely caricatures. This Is the problem ol all profanity. It becomes (he cm- • phnsts of emptiness. The affront to the name of God and the indignity to holiness is important, but It is only one of the essential problems. It is the meaningless word, the draining of exactness from semantics which is also sinful. In a time when we demand scientific exactitude, by what moral light do we justify a verbal barbarism? Another part of the profanity is its abhorence of man himself. Today's drama, television plays and much of its literature treat man as though he is only a sick animal. Theie's plenty of evidence to be dredged up to prove the case. As one of Albee's characters said, "I disgust me." Yet realism is not only the statement of the illness: it is also the statement of the human possibilities and the power to redeem. This is what is missing from so much of contemporary life. In the rush from sentimentalism, we become dreary in our profaning of the very nature of man You would never guess that man could be a channel of the power and love of God! Goodness is not just a kind of mouthing of piety. .Icsun said Hint many who say "IAIIII , Lord" were only Indulging hi a kind of profanity. He reiterated the Insistence of Amos that God hated the solemn assemblies and the pious rites when there Is no accompanying commitment to a way of life. * If we fight to keep "In God We trust" on our coins and then try to keep God imprisoned on our money, we engage in a kind of profanity. * If we get disturbed about the denial of prayer in our schools nnd then have no moments of prayer in our homes, that too ia a kind of immorality. * If wo permit gradual erosion of honor in speech and accuracy in language, we lose the tools of holiness. The playwrights and the novelists underscore the meaningless of profanity by their obscene reiteration. That should send us back into the daily round in these pre-Chvistmas weeks praying, "Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer." 10:00 a.m., Sundav School.
