The employment, by many, of a 'God compound' curse is interesting. Being an atheist it has equal value to me as many other curse words from various sexual acts to bodily function.
So I'm wondering about the God-fearingness (?) or otherwise of people who employ the word in curses. And whether the people who do believe consider the more Anglo-Saxon derived words to be worse or on a a par with the deity-rooted words?
