I believe this campaign is less about telling someone too "stop using the R word", and more about informing the general public that this word is hurtfull, especially to those who have (specifically) Downs Syndrome. I think we as Orthodox Christans, and Christians in general, should come off our "freedom of speech high horse", and be more understanding to the fact this word/description when used in the wrong context, causes unnecessary pain to a brother/sister (especially one who is mentally handicapped, etc). So in the end, what do we gain by keeping this word, or any other word used as a slur in our vocabulary? I Cor. 8:13 "For this reason, if food is a cause of trouble to my brother, I will give up taking meat for ever, so that I may not be a cause of trouble to my brother."
