I have noticed that deities from the Christian religion have exclusively had their names used as cuss words by virtually everyone. This is unfair. I propose that we give worshipped figures of other religions a chance at being recognized as well. Not only would this help with cultural diversity, it would also break the monopoly Judeo-Christianity has set up in this area. Here are some examples of phrases we could use.

"Sweet Mohammad. I just found twenty bucks on the street!"
"Bar-ak Obama. Can the Bears not lose a single game!?"
"Sweet mother of Venus. Did you see that?"
"Oh. My. Allah."
"For the love of Buddha."

In all fairness, I am a huge fan of "Allah forbid!"

I noticed that they said it in Aladdin and I've used it ever since :P

Contrary to popular belief, Obama is not a deity.

I never said he was. I said "worshipped figures of other religions", not deities.

You must have a different definition of religion than I do.

Here is the definition to which I was referring.

4: a cause, principle, or system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith

Obama is clearly a worshipped figure of a certain religion. However, I am not entirely certain what the name of that religion is. Obamism? Barakianity? Help me out here.

Because no one wants to someone hear "For the love of mongeese."

I've think I've heard something similar to that that wasn't in reference to a diety.

You are hurtling toward death and, even worse, judgement and, much worse, hell.
