When reading through blogs or Internet article comments, I must admit that I cringe every time I see religious people capitalize “He,” “Him,” or “His,” etc. to refer to god. It’s one thing to capitalize the “G” in god, even though that’s quite absurd because the word “god” is not a proper noun. But to capitalize pronouns and determiners is an attempt to use them as if they are proper nouns, and that makes a mockery of the english language. I can sort of understand wanting to promote nouns to proper nouns, but a determiner?! Come on!! So if that’s the game we are going to play, I suggest we nonbelievers write some satirical posts where we capitalize prepositions (we can also include infinitive markers and adverbs too for added flavor).
It might seem absurd, but it’s not more absurd than capitalizing a determiner (which robs the determiner of its determination). Here’s how it might look:
“Religious people annoy the fuck Out Of me With their attempts To bastardize english grammar In order To suit their stylistic wants.”
Note: This only applies in english. In some languages, such as German, all nouns are capitalized, which actually makes a lot more sense than the english lower case method.
