Do pastors use the word “***” in their sermons, or do they replace the word with “donkey”?

    the word "A**" is used in teh bible. some translators do change words to be more moderate and modest with the words that were used originally in Hebrew. take for example the story of Ruth, when she UN-covered the "feet" of Boaz. i am told that it was the "testicles" of Boaz that Ruth uncovered.

    If they are reading from the KJV, they will say ašs.

    Back in the 1960's the ones that I heard used the word in the KJV.  More recently, I heard them say "donkey."

    Typically "donkey" is used in the U.S.

    because of the..."uncouth" sound of the synonym in our culture.

    However

    if reading from a Bible translation that uses "the a word"

    typically that word will be read without alteration.

    One pastor used multiple "***" to draw a line.

    Most pastors use the biblical texts as they are written, and do not insert words of their own choosing.

    Sorry. I've never heard a pastor say "***". Can't help you.
