    I've seen a couple of network shows in the past month or so where someone says 'Jesus Christ!' (aka, taking the Lord's name in vain) and it was not bleeped. Personally, I'd prefer that nothing get bleeped and nothing get censored. However, if they're going to bleep out other vulgarities, shouldn't they also bleep this one?

    But where does it end? Should Oh my God be bleeped out as well? Swear words, fair enough. But it can be taken too far.

    You both should have said, 'JESUS CHRIST NO!' :)

    I'm just pointing out the inconsistency and arbitrary nature of what gets bleeped and what doesn't.
