ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the emergence of profaneness in the media in 1911. He believes men, whether they may be Catholics or nonbelievers, have accepted and respected the Ten Commandments. He considers the religious and moral imperatives as reflective of a perfect society due to the rules governing human activities. He also relates the covenant to the teachings of Jesus Christ. However, he concludes the occurrence of blasphemies in the print industry and pulpits as Protestant preachers made their own laws.
