Why should all this crap be allowed?

You would no doubt be happpy with sayings "nigger in the woodpile", "catch a nigger by the toe", etc (apologies for my usage here).

These sayings are devised to reinforce evils like religion and racism. It's only a few years since the above were OK in the US and South Africa, they may still be used in private by racists.

Your list is currently used by 6 billion so it's understandable why there are so many on the list and why athiests find it hard to avoid them.

The most frequently used is "Oh my God!" (and not just in porn movies). I havn't used that since I stopped praying in my very early teens. We could all give that up easily. Can't call yourself an athiest if you don't!
