Definition: An irreverent person is someone who shows a lack of due respect. When someone is
irreverent he or she is commonly “badmouthing” or making fun of something that is very highly respected.
Irreverent is also a word commonly used to describe something done disrespectfully in a church service, as
reverence is a major aspect of a church ceremony.
Examples: • The man went over to the church grave yard and began to throw eggs at the tombs.
• In the middle of the church prayer a man yelled out a vulgar sentence using all of the curse words he could possibly fathom.
This is beer.
