Can Christians say “Ass?”

I recent went on a camping trip with a bunch of my mostly Christian friends. We had an awesome time together.

One day I chose to wear a tee-shirt that some good friends had given me from one of their favorite coffee shops Bad Ass Coffee.

Bad Ass Coffee T-Shirt



To say this generated some “discussion” would be accurate. Some brought up the Ephesians 4:29 Bible verse:

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

It is part of the body; it is also an animal – that happens to be referenced in the Bible. There is also society of clean thinkers called the Ancient and Honorable Order of Turtles which has “ass” as part of their code-words.


Can Christians say “ass?” Is my tee-shirt inappropriate? What do you think?



  1. Hell no!

  3. Yes Christians can say ass when used in the right context in referring to the animal or a persons bottom because it’s not a swear word. Other than that it’s used to mean an idiot in a curse word way.
