Is "oh my god" okay?


#1

A lot of people say "Oh my God" on the forum and Hopscotch. I say "omg" because j think of it as "Oh my Gosh". Is "omg" and/or "oh my god" okay? I have a lot of friends that take offense to "Oh My god." I don't, but there is other's that take offense to that, that are on the forum and Hopscotch. Is that okay to say? Please share your opinions!

Tbh, I was thinking about this too. I prefer to say OMG because it seems safer :D

It's perfectly fine! It doesn't really go against people's religions that much, and have you seen people that got mad because someone said "omg"? It's like saying "Woah!" or "Oh, wow!" :wink:


#4

Yeah, I have seen people mad. But I'm not going to point fingers.


#5

Well, that descalated quickly on my part

I tend to stay away from saying that, because once I said that and my grandma said "stop cussing or i will start doing the same" 0.o


#8

But really, in my household, my mom sees it as something rude to say, so we tend to stick with Oh my gosh, OMG


#9

Personally, I don't take offense to people saying "oh my god", but I'm not sure about other people. (I don't have a religion) I'd probably stick with "omg" or "oh my gosh", just to be on the safe side. :wink:

OMG!!! Lol I think omg is a lot better than OH MY GOD! I agree with yall


#11

I just say gosh because some people get mad at me


#12

Yeah, in first grade my friend would yell at me when I said it 0-0


#13

Nope, nope, nope, nope, nope! Not okay, at all :confused:


#14

Oh My God is for Christians "Gods name in vain" which is stated in the bible to not do. So yes just say omg and Gosh or ermagash or something


#15

In some religions it is bad...


#16

Like mine, but I don't take it too seriously!


#18

Nope?Its not ok? Well that's your opinion, @AHappyCoder we all agree omg is ok


#19

Yes, if it means Oh My Gosh, I am fine with it, if it means You-Know-What, I am really not happy :3


#20

I say it in real life (atheist/spiritual family.) but I don't on hopscotch. I once did.
