Saying "God Damn it" isn't taking the lords name in vain. Taking the lords name in vain means to take credit for acts of nature such as a flood, or eclipse.

"Yahweh Damn it" is how it should be, since "god" is not is name.

It's so funny the reaction I get when I explain this simple truth to even the most evangelical Christian.

God didn't create anything. It was me!

I thought that taking the lord's name in vain meant:

1. Not to use god's name to persecute people for example, homosexuals or minorities.
2. Not to use god's name to plunder resources from the Earth without regard for the Earth.
3. There are probably more examples that I can't think of right now.

How about "Gay Jesus Blowjob" because if Jesus never gave a blowjob you would be giving him credit for something he didn't do AND it would piss everyone off. Especially Jesus.
