PARC was incorporated in 1957 as the Peoria Association for Retarded Citizens, Inc. In 2006 PARC made the move away from the use of the term "Retarded" and transitioned to People Advocating for Respect and Consideration of individuals with developmental disabilities. In 2009 the organization formally assumed the name PARC.
If you want to call someone "dumb" or "stupid," there are already lots of words that mean exactly that. Like "dumb." And "stupid."
How is this different from pejorative uses of 'blind' or 'lame' or 'insane'?
Some people take offense when their Lord's name is used in vain.
Trying to cure the ills of society by persuading people to treat certain words as offensive is like trying to treat cancer by making lumps unfashionable.
