Why do so many people say that? I was wondering why people use 'God' and 'Jesus' in their expletitives. Is it just a western thing or do people do the same from other cultures? Are there any athiests who have unlearnt the habit of saying "Oh God" or "Oh Jesus" when faced with a crisis? Are there Christians who find themselves saying it and then giving themselves a hard time for doing so in case they are blaspheming?
