Raqa, is a scornful word that derives from pride in oneself and hatred to another. Its meaning is a brainless, or a worthless idiot. Verbal abuse, an outcome of hatred, is more serious than anger. So, the Jews had to refer that to the Sanhedrin, the higher court of the Jews. Even contemptuous words shall be liable for last judgement at the Second Coming of Christ who said, “I tell you, on the day of judgement people will render an account for every careless word they speak” (Mt 12:36). In a reverse sense, Christians should love and respect one another. We must honour the life and dignity of all persons, regardless of their weaknesses.
