I recently 'discussed' the issue of where the Power of Swear or Cuss words comes from - in my position of the subject I hypothesized that they were all based in religious dogma - and that they should have no meaning to a person who claims to be an Atheist.

Still, he was offended by the use of such a word towards him. He claimed that it was because of the intent behind the use of the word that caused the offense to be taken. I argued that was nonsense, he was an Atheist after all and so there was no contextual offense to be had, that it was because he had grown up and been surrounded by people who actually did take offense to it and due to that environment he responded to it as an offense.
