There is 1 question in this category.
We were surprised that a teacher from my son's school asked him not to say "oh my God," but instead to say "oh my gosh". I think that is based in the Catholic faith because they do not like the God's name to be said in vain or so frequently especially with anger, play, or inappropriate situations. I think this would be good practice to some extent. The other reason might be because of some atheists who ask for their rights by not mentioning the name of God. I also know that here, one cannot say any religious words at work, school, etc. I think I'm going to teach my son that due to the need to not say the word God in any time especially inappropriately, he can switch it with the word 'gosh' that does not mean anything. This way, he can maintain respect for God's and praise we have.
