Why has profanity and blasphemy taken such deep roots in our society?
I'm pretty sure profanity takes deep roots in just about all societies. Just about every culture has it. It's a good way to express frustration and anger without turning to violence and studies have shown that swearing can reduce physical pain. As for blasphemy... well that comes with freedom of religion, I guess, and the ability to form one's own opinions. Nevertheless, both are results of free speech, which is why you hear a lot of it.
I personally don't endorse anything that spreads intolerance or hate, like the N word. I have no problem with swearing in general, though. Blasphemy is tricky. Condemning someone for it infringes on another's religious rights.
