AFAIC the use of this particular profanity constitutes religious harassment.
I don't like to hear other profanities used in our mixed workplace, but the
one Kat cited is particularly offensive.

I've also complained to a listener-supported Internet radio station I've
listened to for years about this, e.g., Grateful Dead's *Uncle John's Band*.
In the case of the station, they can afford to do what they like. But in the
workplace, I would certainly let the offender know that use of that
profanity is unacceptable.
