I understood that Mommydi, and agree. Maybe he should look up 2 Corinthians, eh? heh heh.
 My point is that if you/I/anyone, supports a politician we can't really expect them to be a died in the wool Christian. Not that it's impossible, but it's highly unlikely that they are Christian. Even if they are, you can't really base a decision on if they are spiritual enough. If so, Jimmy Carter was one of the best I've heard of. But, most of his record as president is not exactly brilliant.

So it seems Donald J. Trump has vowed to stop cussing on the campaign trail. Interesting.  ::pondering::

Are there curse words that are worse than others? Are there acceptable curse words for candidates to say?

It's not the words themselves, but how they are used.  Trump is like Howard Stern.  He uses vulgarity to shock people, like calling one of his opponents a vulgar slang word for part of the female anatomy. 

I do not think that behavior is suitable for any candidate, regardless of what religion they claim.  I do not think it is about holding someone to a higher standard than someone else, but holding all the candidates for the highest office in the land to the same high standards.

There is a time and a place for certain words/phrases.  A presidential campaign is not one of them, IHMO.  I hope Trump does clean up his act.  The shock jock persona may attract some people, but it also turns a lot of people off.
